Mickey Rourke Is a Total Badass

Written by PETA | February 1, 2007

I just heard that Mickey Rourke is holding a protest in Miami this afternoon. Apparently, he bought a puppy from a pet store around Christmas and the puppy died a couple of weeks later. Once Mickey learned from PETA’s Dan Mathews how pet shops sell all sorts of sick and inbred animals all the time, he fired off a letter to the store immediately. And today he’ll be in front of the store letting the public know what he’s learned.

Did you see the guy in Domino or Sin City? Total badass. My suggestion to the store: Do what the man says. For real.

    Mr. Rourke just made a very heartfelt speech at the Golden Globes where he thanked his dogs. He said they mean the world to him. That was really sweet. Made me shed a tear I must say.

    People have NO IDEA that ALL puppies sold in pet stores and from those shipstoyou websites are from the puppy mills Every single one. The owners of these stores and websites tell every lie in the book to convince people they aren’t but they sure are Just a note to anyone who sees a news story about this make sure you email the reporter and the paper and educate them about puppy mills. Most of them don’t have a clue either!
