There are a couple of reasons you might know Jared Padalecki. If you're like Patricia over at peta2, you remember him as Dean on Gilmore Girls and love him as Sam on Supernatural (and if you're really like Patricia, you just might have a little crush on him—just sayin'). You might also remember the anti-fur ad he did for peta2. Jared posed with doggies Harley and Sadie to ask his fans, "If you wouldn't wear your dog, please don't wear any fur."
Well, it looks like Jared's fans have done more than just abstain from fur—they've joined him in the fight against it! The fans at SupportSupernatural.com banded together to raise some serious moolah for PETA in Jared's honor—a hefty $1200, if you can believe it!—which will go a long way to help animals.
Big thanks go out to Lindsay and Heather at SupportSupernatural.com—that's some major organizing and some major fundraising, ladies!
Hmm … inspiring, animal-loving cutie who plays a badass demon-fighter? Maybe Patricia is on to something ….

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
