PETA pal Joan Rivers is using her unmistakable voice to support two important dog-related bills that are under consideration by the New York City Council. Today, Joan fired off a letter to City Council Speaker Christine C. Quinn, expressing her support for bills that would encourage New Yorkers to get lifesaving spay and neuter surgeries for their dogs and would protect dogs from being chained up like old bicycles for longer than three hours in any 12-hour period.Check out what Joan has to say about people who force their dogs to live outdoors in the cold!
Fur-free fashion guru Tim Gunn also sent a personal note to Speaker Quinn in favor of these bills, so support is building. If you live in the Big Apple, be sure to encourage your City Council member to vote in favor of these vital bills!

Hi Joan, I would like to find out if you have thrown out the real firs and are now wearing the fakes. I certainly hope so. My husband had his late mother's furs in our cupboard and asked me if I would like me and you can imagine what I did.- I asked for them to be sold and the money to go to a charity for animals. I mean really. I got the heebie jeebies! Who can live like that, know that defenceless animals have been skinned, and I have seen videos, alive. Please everyone. Throw away the furs!!! Be very kind to animals. They give so much pleasure. They are there for us when we are ill, when we are depressed, when we are blind etc/

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.
