Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) January 31, 2009 - Find out what makes PETA such a successful animal rights group -
with more than 2.0 million members.
PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) President and cofounder, Ingrid Newkirk has led the worlds largest animal rights organization for more than 25 years. Her passion and dedication to making this world a better place for all living beings has inspired countless others to do what they can to help animals.
Ingrid recently starred in an HBO original film titled "I Am An Animal" and it was revealing, but Wake UP America promises more... a much more personal and in-depth look at the leader of the animal rights world.

PETA focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: on factory farms, in laboratories, in the clothing trade, and in the entertainment industry. We also work on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of beavers, birds and other "pests," and the abuse of backyard dogs.
PETA works through public education, cruelty investigations, research, animal rescue, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement, and protest campaigns.
