Q. How do I use my promotional code discount?

A. Promotional codes can be applied to an order via the submission box found below the product list in your shopping cart page. Please note that there is a limit of one promotional code per order. Discounts apply to the true merchandise total value only and are not applied to shipping and handling fees or taxes.

Q. When I make a purchase, why am I asked to provide my CVV code?

A. CVV is an authentication procedure established by credit card companies to further efforts towards reducing fraud for internet transactions. It consists of requiring a card holder to enter the CVV number in at transaction time to verify that the card is on hand. The CVV code is a security feature for "card not present" transactions.

Q. Is my credit card charged when I enter my order?

A. Yes. Your credit card will be charged for all items at the time of purchase. If your order contains items that are or become permanently unavailable, those items will be refunded the following business day. Items on back order will be charged at the time of purchase. No additional shipping charges will be incurred for back orders when they release.

Q. What is your return policy, and do you provide return labels?

A. PETA has a 100 percent guarantee on all merchandise orders for 60 days. You can return an item for credit, exchange, or refund. We have a very low return rate, so we are not currently including return labels in our orders. We accept exchanges postage-free (i.e., you pay to send in your return, but you will not be charged additional postage on the replacement; we will ship out the exchange item postage-free).

Q. Which T-shirt size should I order?

A. PETA carries a variety of T-shirt types. The regular cotton T-shirts in standard sizes are unisex and sized larger. The fitted sizes run quite small, so you may want to order at least one size larger than usual. Each product page includes a size chart for more accurate information.

Q. Will my order help PETA?

A. PETA is a nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) corporation funded almost exclusively by the contributions of our members, and as such your PETA Catalog purchase helps to support our vital work to help animals worldwide. Thanks to the assistance of kind people like you, PETA has made tremendous strides to make the world a better place for animals, improving the lives of literally billions of animals suffering in factory farms, laboratories, circuses, and fur farms. These victories are made possible with the generous support of compassionate people like you. To learn more about our work and history, please visit

Q. How do I become a PETA member?

A. You can join PETA here at or by filling out this form.

Q. Do I receive a discount on merchandise if I am a member?

Q. Will I receive a tax document if I make a donation on

A. Yes, for all donations over $1.00. Please allow up to 4 weeks for processing.

Q. Are all of the products you sell made in the U.S.A.?

A. Most of our items are made in the U.S.A., and will be listed as such in the details for each item. If a suitable US made option is unavailable, we will make every effort to source an alternative ethically and to avoid any countries with known human rights violations.

Q. Will you sell my product on

A. We are always looking for new items to offer our customers, and we would be happy to review your product. In order for us to consider your product, you must provide all relevant information, including cost, minimum order quantity, credit terms, and lead time. Also, if possible, please send a sample of the item to:

Attn.: Merchandising Review
501 Front St.
Norfolk, VA 23510

You can also send an e-mail that includes the product information and a photograph to [email protected]. We will review your submission and make every effort possible to respond within 10 days of receipt.

Q. Can you send me a print catalog?

A. Unfortunately, we have discontinued production of printed catalog copies in favor of listing on our online catalog.

We realize not everyone has computer access, so we will always accept orders through the mail or from our toll-free number, 1-877-926-4926. But we found that 80% of our customers were making their PETA catalog purchases through our Web catalog, even though we were sending them the catalog through the mail. Not printing our catalog is saving us more than $100,000 annually on printing and design alone. We will continue to let our members know, through PETA Global magazine, about new products that have been added to our online catalog. In addition, all of the discount codes that we feature in our magazine will also be valid by phone or mail. We hope that this does not inconvenience you in any way. We appreciate your support of PETA and our merchandise program and hope you will choose to order through the Web site, mail, or by telephone.

Please note that most literature items available indicate a "suggested donation" amount. If you're unable to make the suggested donation, please email [email protected].
