Los Angeles – Below, please find a statement from PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange on the passing of Hollywood icon Doris Day:
Doris Day was a silver screen and singing legend, but PETA will always remember her for her most important role: animal champion. She personally rescued, fostered, and found loving homes for hundreds of animals; founded an organization to stop animal homelessness through spaying and neutering; and formed the Doris Day Animal League, which joined PETA in opposing cruel chemical tests on animals. Day was a warm, kind, generous person, and she will be missed by all of us here at PETA.
PETA’s motto reads, “Animals are not ours to experiment on, eat, wear, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way.” For more information, please visit PETA.org.
