Yvonne Taylor

Senior Programme Manager at PETA Foundation

Yvonne Taylor is Senior Programme Manager at PETA Foundation and overseas all aspects of the organisation's campaign work.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Foundation is a UK-based charity dedicated to establishing and protecting the rights of all animals. PETA believes that, like humans, animals are capable of suffering and have an interest in leading their own lives. Therefore, they are not ours to use – for food, clothing, experimentation, entertainment or any other reason. PETA and its affiliates around the world educate policymakers and the public about cruelty to animals and promote an understanding of the right of all animals to be treated with respect.

Racing to Their Deaths

More than 400 horses die in racing in the UK every year. Surely we have evolved enough to recognise that horses shouldn't have to suffer and pay with their lives so people can win a few quid.
