PETA is the international organization that seeks to halt cruelty to animals. The acronym stands for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. It is the largest animal rights group in the world. They seek to educate the public about ethic treatment of animals. They investigate allegations of cruelty and seek legislation to end animal abuse in laboratories and in other arenas.
