Controversies, Success Stories and How We Can All Help Animals: Behind the Scenes with PETA’s Kathy Guillermo

Oct 18, 2023

Our guest today, Kathy Guillermo, is the Senior Vice President of PETA, and throughout her impressive 30-year career, she’s exposed cruelty to animals in laboratories, the horse racing industry, and major corporations. Some of her many victories include persuading Gillette and Estée Lauder to permanently ban animal testing, getting NASA to call off radiation experiments on monkeys, and pressuring the Coast Guard to stop using goats and pigs for trauma training. Kathy also wrote the book Monkey Business: The Disturbing Case That Launched the Animal Rights Movement, which details the landmark Silver Springs Monkey cruelty case that led to the first conviction of an animal experimenter on cruelty-to-animals charges.

Tune in to this special episode to hear about the important work PETA continues to do and learn how we can all take steps to effect change!
