Things are getting muy caliente at the PETA office during National Hispanic Heritage Month. We rounded up some of our favorite ads starring Latino supporters and created a slideshow hotter than the month of August.
From fighting fur and "fixing" animal homelessness to goring bullfighting and getting gorgeous with veggies, these Latin stars are true amigos to animals.

Telemundo host Natalia Villaveces' new PETA ad was unveiled in South Beach yesterday, and Spanish-language media, including People en Español and CNN en Español went a little, well, bananas.
Villaveces credits PETA's Alec Baldwin-narrated video "Meet Your Meat" with convincing her to switch to a vegan diet. "Once I made that connection between loving an animal and eating an animal is when things click[ed] in my brain," she says.
