The town of Rodeo is named for the livestock roundups common in the late 19th century. Cattle from the surrounding hills were regularly driven down through the old town to a loading dock on the shoreline of San Pablo Bay for shipment. In October 2003, the animal rights group PETA urged the town to change its name because it invoked the image of a rodeo, which they claim is harmful to animals. PETA offered to donate $20,000 worth of veggie burgers to local schools if the name was changed.
