activist Michelle Doers was reading Animal Times when she first learned
about actor James
Cromwell's arrest at the University of Wisconsin (UW) for protesting its heinous experiments on
cats. That's when she remembered reading about something else in the PETA
publication: a woman who wrapped her car in an ad to raise awareness about
animal issues. So Michelle decided to turn her own car into a moving billboard
the next two months, Michelle will be using her car to speak up for animals in
laboratories and encouraging others to buy only cruelty-free
home and beauty products. After that, she plans to change the wrap on her
car seasonally. Her next message will encourage people to boycott Ringling Bros.
for its abuse of elephants.
stellar activist and PETA supporter, Anne Feingold, helped coordinate a joint
letter through her cat rescue organization that was signed by more than 150 cat
advocacy and rescue organizations from nearly all 50 states. The letter, which
unequivocally condemns UW's cruel experiments on cats, was sent to the
leadership of the university as well as to the federal funding agency that
enables this abuse. Anne also showed impressive initiative and dedication by
contacting local media in Madison, Wisconsin, to alert them to her efforts.

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.
