Join PETA's Vanguard Society

Donate Now

Join a special group of donors at the leading edge of PETA’s vital work to end the suffering, abuse, and neglect of animals by becoming a member of our Vanguard Society today.

We chose the name Vanguard because of what it means: to be at the forefront of a movement. Our Vanguard Society members make it possible for us to lead the way in the work for animal rights.

Your generous Vanguard Society gift will strengthen our vital campaigns to stop the abuse and neglect of all animals—whether in laboratories, on massive farms, in circuses, or even in backyards. Our Vanguard Society members expect more for their investment, which is why they receive exclusive updates on all of our campaigns.

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.
