Support PETA's Vanguard Society

Support PETA's Vanguard Society

The namesake of the Vanguard Society is a rescued dog whom the U.S. Naval Research Center in Maryland planned to use many years ago in a fatal and painful deep-sea diving-chamber experiment. After Vanguard was rescued, he was nursed back to health and placed in a loving home.

We also chose the name Vanguard because of what it means: the forefront of a movement. It is our Vanguard Society members who make it possible for PETA to continue to lead the way in the fight for animal rights.

By supporting PETA's Vanguard Society, you are turning your compassion into action in behalf of animals suffering on fur farms and factory farms and in laboratories, circuses, zoos, dogfighting rings, and puppy mills.

Please make a significant contribution toward ending animal abuse and suffering around the world by making a leadership gift of $500 or more.

What is the Investigations & Rescue Fund?

The Investigations & Rescue Fund is a special monthly giving program that provides PETA with financial support for its groundbreaking investigations and lifesaving rescue work. This vital fund allows PETA to respond immediately when animals are in need and helps provide our brave investigators with the resources that they need to expose—and stop—hideous abuse of animals that happens out of the public eye.

Members commit to a modest amount every month, which provides year-round support for this urgent work for animals.

How does it work?

It's easy! Simply choose your monthly gift and enter your billing information on our secure website. We'll charge your credit card or debit your checking account for this amount at the same time each month.

Who are Investigations & Rescue Fund members?

Supporters of the Investigations & Rescue Fund are committed individuals—people like you—who want to ensure that PETA has the resources it needs to maintain and expand this vital part of its work for animals. Investigations & Rescue Fund donors know that through their monthly gift, they're helping to fund undercover investigations that save animals' lives.

What exactly does the fund do?

It provides PETA with the resources to seek out and train a top-notch team of investigators, help them document incidents of cruelty, stop animal suffering, remove animals and transport them to safety, and take action to hold perpetrators accountable.

What are the benefits of membership in the Investigations & Rescue Fund?

Investigations & Rescue Fund supporters receive all the benefits of PETA membership, including a subscription to our informative magazine, Animal Times. However, as long as you're an active Investigations & Rescue Fund supporter, your membership in PETA is always current—you do not receive yearly renewal notices.

In addition, PETA has a dedicated staff member to address any questions, concerns, or issues that may come up as a part of your participation in the program.

Can I cancel or change at any time?

Yes. Participation in the Investigations & Rescue Fund is at your discretion. You can go online and change your monthly amount, or cancel, at any time.
