how we love Olivia Munn. In her Us Weekly "25 Things You Don't Know About Me" Q&A, she wrote: "I
believe in rescuing your pets, not buying them." You're in good company
there, Olivia. Loads of celebrities are fans of animal shelters, including Orlando Bloom, who rescued his dog,
Sidi, seven years ago and has enjoyed having him right by his side ever
can easily name 25 things that we love about Pamela Anderson. Just this week, as she headed into the Celebrity Big Brother (UK) house, she sent a letter to the
European Commission, asking it to institute the ban on animal-tested cosmetics in
2013, instead of delaying it, as the commission has discussed doing. Then she
proposed a deliciously kind idea to her new housemates: She will introduce them
all to heavenly vegetarian
cuisine, and the entire show
will be cruelty-free.
vegetarian Ke$ha is proving that blondes
really do have more (animal-friendly) fun by designing a new line of faux-fur clothing and
they'll become one of Oprah's favorite things. The Editor's Note in the October issue of O
reads, "And there's one [trend] that O
has decided to skip, not just this season but in every issue since the magazine
began: garments made of real fur. . . . That is not to say you won't
find exotic animal skins and feathers in O's
October issue; it's just that they're still attached to the living creatures
that grew them."

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.
