Pamela Anderson Sells Sports Car to Raise Money for PETA

Written by PETA | June 9, 2008

That’s right! Just when you were wondering if she could be any more fabulous, actor and devoted PETA supporter Pamela Anderson continues to set the bar high when it comes to helping animals. She recently announced that she’ll be selling her 2000 Dodge Viper (customized with white racing stripes and the whole shebang) along with other personal items at Julien’s Auctions’ Summer Entertainment Sale of Hollywood Memorabilia and handing profits over to PETA. “I’ve been working with PETA for 15 years,” Pam said to the Associated Press. “They’re kind of my ethical advisers. With them, I see actual results.”

Pam told the media that she attends charity auctions on a regular basis but doesn’t do much collecting herself. “I get sports stuff for my kids,” she said. “But me? I, just on a whim, give everything away. This is another one of those opportunities, but it’s specific. It goes to the cause.”

Whether it comes to talking politics in D.C., hosting news conferences in Paris, doing charity work, speaking out against KFC, and narrating videos, Ms. Anderson has always been a true hero for animals.

You can check out Pam’s upcoming new series on E!, Pam: Girl on the Loose, to see scenes from the auction.

  • Steve says:

    Does anyone else besides me have an issue with this? I find it hypocritical to take such a strong stand against the use of animal products and then turn around and accept money based on the sale of these products.

  • Tammy says:

    Pam Rocks! You gotta love her…

    While I agree that P.E.T.A does do some good things I wonder if Pam could send some of the proceeds of her sportscar to help the people who are abandoning their horses because they can’t afford to feed them anymore and there are no slaughterhouses to take them to thanks to PETA. While I don’t like slaughterhouses isn’t it better than having the horses starve to death?

    Pam rocks!! she has a huge heart and i love how she uses her celebrity influence to encourage other celebs to do the same!! she is awesome!

  • DaBoss says:

    I can’t believe peta is showering Pam with praise over this. The damn car has leather seats for christ sake!Anyone who supports this is a total fake! I guess peta can label themselves murders now.

  • mellow says:

    She is truly one of the most misunderstood actresses in Hollywood. I applaud her dedication and spirit.

  • gem says:

    she has a genuine heart of gold..! a true friend and advocate for the animals.. and so of course all who work at and all who support PeTA too!

  • Mike Quinoa says:

    Pam certainly doesn’t need a hot car to be hot. I admire celebrities like Pam who stick their neck out for something they believe in it takes a lot of guts.

  • Kelly says:

    Pam is a good example to us all that we have to remember to make a donation and support the animals The animal abusers remember to make donations to their “charities” the pro animal abuse lobbyists. We need to vote for the animals with our dollars!

  • Niranjan says:
