Thanks to a generous foundation supporting PETA's work, an additional gift of $75 will be made to benefit our Investigations & Rescue Fund for each new monthly donor who gives via this form until December 31, 2023, or until the $75,000 campaign goal is met. Donations made after the goal has been met will not qualify for the extra $75 gift, but they'll still make a tremendous difference to animals.

How Does PETA’s Investigations & Rescue Fund Help Save Animals?

PETA’s undercover investigations are one of the most important parts of our work. We rely on them to uncover horrific cruelty, and then we use the footage and information we find to expose—and ultimately stop—the abuse.

These investigations can be lifesaving. In late 2021, we released a groundbreaking exposé of Envigo, a dog-breeding facility in Virginia where thousands of beagles endured abusive, prison-like conditions. Months after the findings of our investigation were released, that hellhole shut down and nearly 4,000 beagles—all bred for experimentation or kept to produce more puppies for sale to laboratories—were released for adoption. We know that we can stop this kind of misery—but the first step in doing so is to expose it!

Over the course of the investigation, PETA found more than 360 puppies dead in cages with their mothers and littermates.

Months after PETA’s groundbreaking exposé, Envigo’s dog-breeding hellhole shut down and all the surviving beagles were released for adoption.

What is the Verification Code and what does it look like?

For your protection, we ask that you enter an extra 3-4 digit number called the CVV2. The CVV2 is NOT your PIN number. It is an extra ID printed on your Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express Card.

Visa, MasterCard & Discover

On the back of the card in the top-right corner of the signature box, as depicted in the image to the right. Enter the three-digit number following the credit card number.

The CVV2 is shown as 3 digits after the credit card number on the back of the card.

American Express

On the front of the card as depicted in the image to the right. Enter the four-digit number on the right directly above the credit card number.

The CVV2 is shown as 4 digits on the front of the card.

Bank Routing & Account Numbers

To make a payment directly from your U.S. bank account, you will need to provide the routing number for your bank, as well as your account number. Both of these numbers can be found at the bottom of a check issued for your bank account.

At the bottom of your check you will find three numbers - the routing number which is always 9 digits long for U.S. banks, the account number which can be up to 17 digits long, and the check number which will match the number found in the upper right corner of the check. These sets of numbers can appear in a variety of orders on your check. However, you will always find the routing number surrounded by this symbol ACH Routing Symbol, and the account number will always be to the left of this symbol ACH Account Symbol.

Please use the image below for an example of how your routing and account numbers may appear on your check.

Sample Check:

The routing number comes first and is surrounded by the ACH Routing Symbol symbol, the account number comes next and is followed by the ACH Account Symbol symbol.

The CVV2 is shown as 3 digits after the credit card number on the back of the card.
