People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) The motto - Animals are not ours to eat, wear,

experiment on, or use for entertainment. PETA focuses its attention on the four areas where the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: on factory farms in the clothing trade in laboratories in the entertainment industry

Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) The RSPCA as a charity will, by all lawful means, prevent cruelty, promote kindness to and alleviate suffering of all animals. RSPCA is a charity operating in England and Wales that promotes animal welfare. It is the oldest and largest animal welfare organisation in the world and is one of the largest charities in the UK. We work to improve the welfare of pets by: ensuring that every pet is cared for properly and has a good home ending cruelty to pet animals raising standards for pet animals worldwide Stopping pet overpopulation.

They also work on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of beavers and birds etc... as well as cruelty to domesticated animals. PETA works through public education, cruelty investigations, research, animal rescue, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement, and protest campaigns.

The difference between PETA and the RSPCA is that the RSPCA work immediately and the results are shown immediately as well, however PETAs work is more of a long period effectiveness, meaning that the work they do will be visible in the future. Also, their work is for specific animals, the largest amount suffering the most, whereas the RSPCA will help protect any animal of any kind. PETA help protect against four main categories, factory farms, clothing, laboratories and entertainment. This suggests that anything other than that would not be seen to or low priority. The RSPCAs four main categories mainly help and protect pet animals, which suggest that the cruelty of slaughtering and killing animals for things such as testing or clothing is not prioritised in this charity. One thing that is different is that organisations such as PETA, support protesters who do things like invading fashion shows, and causing trouble whereas welfare groups such as RSPCA dont. Overall, I would say the main difference between the two is that what they prioritise with in what they are protecting are two completely different things, and also the range of time in which the results will be shown.
