Why Pam Isn’t Taking the ‘Ice Bucket Challenge’

Written by Lindsay Pollard-Post | August 20, 2014

What’s colder than having a bucket of ice water dumped over your head? If you ask Pamela Anderson, it’s conducting painful experiments on animals. When Pamela learned from PETA that the ALS Association funds experiments on monkeys and other animals, she accepted the “Ice Bucket Challenge”—and responded with a challenge of her own: Switch to modern, humane non-animal testing methods. Check out Pam in action:

We love you, Pam!

    Next time anyone bags on Pamela Anderson I’ll just show them this because it proves just how good of a person she is

  • trudy der Kinderen says:

    Humans are so consumed with me, me me, not realising that animals are tortured to produce results if in fact they do. If humans want cures, test it on humans! thanks Pam

  • Heidi says:

    Dear Pamela,

    Thank you for all the Love in Your Heart for the Animals that can’t speak!!!

  • Thank you so very much Pam. Sometimes it’s not easy doing the right thing and going against what so many others are doing. I am so very proud of you. I hope this gets some of the others to stop and think. Testing on animals is inhumane and should STOP! Thank you again. Keep up the good work!

  • Tim Davies says:

    Nice one Pamela. You are a star for highlighting this to everyone. We all really need to do our homework prior to jumping on any old bandwagon.

  • Rose Hunter says:

    Thank you Pam for caring, and MAKING A DIFFERENCE! You are a beautiful soul<3

  • cindy says:

    I support you Pamela for your compassionate efforts for animals

  • Diana Beall says:

    Way to go, Pam. I wish other actors would join you. That would be a step in the right direction to help save innocent animals.

  • Virginia Greenwood-Warner says:

    Pam you have soul which most of the world unfortunately doesn’t. You are such a special and beautiful person!!!!

  • nosey says:

    I didn’t know that! :(

  • Stanka says:

    Stop testing all Animals.,!

  • tammie says:

    Thank you Pam for bringing that to our attention.I had no idea.

  • connie says:

    Thank you for letting so many people know that living creatures will continue to be tortured with the money that people have so generously donated. Surely now they can use research that is acceptable by today’s standards rather than continue to do painful repetitive tests on innocent creatures.

  • Natalie says:

    ahh go Pam!!

  • Dr J Willis says:

    Thank you Pam. Too often it’s assumed that if something is ‘for charity’ it must be good and anyone who questions it is uncharitable. No – just thinking! Too many organisations perform appalling experiments on animals, yet have state funding and/or charity status.

  • 4animalrights says:

    Thank you Pam! Proof that you’re not just a pretty face; you’ve also got a good head on your shoulders (now, now …keep it G-rated, folks :) — not to mention a kind heart.

  • Michele says:

    Way to go Pam! I agree people go with the trend and fund a charity that does unspeakable experiments on animals. But you were the smart one to dig deeper!

  • EYG says:

    Thank you Pamela for your advocacy!

  • Torah says:

    You go girl! Do not let them take advantage of these poor animals anymore!

  • Amy Tobiness says:

    Thank you Pamela…. Finally someone makes a stand. Yeah!!!!

  • Edward Kupka says:

    THANK YOU PAM FOR MAKING ME AWARE OF THAT THE ALS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE ACTUALLY FUNDS PAINFUL ANIMAL EXPERIMENTS. I WOULD HAVE GLADLY TAKEN THE CHALLENGE IF NOT FOR YOU EXPOSING THE TRUTH.

  • Karen Wood says:

    Thank you for sending me this information and I thank Pamela Anderson for researching the Foundation before joining the bandwagon. I was unaware of the animal testing done by the ALS foundation and it changes how I view the “ice bucket” challenge. I love her challenge to the foundation! Animal testing should not be legal. It is simply cruel. A form of bullying. We do not have the right to use other beings and force them to suffer to benefit humans. Thank you, thank you, for making me for informed.

  • Stop abusing animals. Testing on animals proves nothing. ALS tests should be about helping find a cure, not cruelty. Read up on ALS. Learn about the disease.

  • Carol says:

    Start the ice bucket challenge to raise money for Peta, I am so sick of all this curlness
    to animals

  • David says:

    She’s right and the so-called ‘moralists’ condemn her.

  • carré says:

    Merci Pamela pour ton soutien et ton engagement pour la protection des animaux!!!!!!!!!!

  • Chris says:

    She is great!!! Love her! Good that she looks in to this.. I hope the ALS will change there methods

    • Valana Alden says:

      I support you Pamela for your compassionate efforts for animals. Thank you for informing us of the animal testing by ALS Association. Another matter: When can the baby seal hunt in Canada be finally stopped. It has been going on too long and is horrible to think it could go on yet another year.

      • Michy says:

        I agree w/your comment. Good job Pam & this horrific senseless massacre of these baby beauties needs to stop asap!

    • Gwenda Haynes says:

      She’s biggest heartly to be supportive the ALS.. I am praying for you and humane!!!! I love you Pam!!!!
