Singer and Strictly Come Dancing star Dionne Bromfield is known for her powerful, soulful voice – and now she’s using it to speak up for animals! In her new ad for PETA, she strikes a pose to protest against the abhorrent cruelty of the fur trade, in which animals such as rabbits and foxes are kept in tiny, filthy cages before being beaten and skinned alive.
Dionne may be only 17 years old, but the star is one to watch and already has an impressive musical track record, from performing with her … Read more.
Paul McCartney’s words “If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be vegetarian” and his powerful PETA video, “Glass Walls”, with its shocking behind-the-scenes video footage of abattoirs and factory farms, have inspired countless people to stop eating animals.
Dutch, French, German and Spanish versions of the video already exist – and now “Glass Walls” makes its debut in Italian to help even more people learn about what really goes on in the industries that raise and kill animals for food. Red Canzian, a popular Italian singer and … Read more.
What do you get for the baby who’s bound to have everything? Well, there’s one thing that you can never have too much of – compassion – which is why we’ve just sent the soon-to-be newest member of Britain’s Royal family a cosy faux-sheepskin blanket, which combines kindness towards animals with great snuggleability!
In our letter congratulating proud parents-to-be Prince William and Duchess Catherine, we explain that traditional wool and sheepskin are often the product of cruelty to animals and therefore hardly belong in a newborn’s cradle. Sheep can have their tails … Read more.
Morrissey has put his money where his mouth is to combat the cruelty of foie gras – by donating £10,000 to PETA for a hard-hitting ad campaign that slams Fortnum & Mason for selling the vile product.
In an unexpected turn of events, we actually have Gordon Ramsay to thank for this generous donation – because the money comes from a settlement that Morrissey received from Channel 4 after a Smiths song was used without permission to advertise the chef’s Christmas Cookalong Live. Appalled that his music was being used to promote … Read more.
Irish beauty, TV star, former Miss World and daughter of iconic singer Chris de Burgh, Rosanna Davison can now add a new title to her list of accolades – advocate for animals. The long-time vegan has just appealed to Ireland’s Minister for Agriculture, Simon Coveney, to end Ireland’s cruel export of live animals.
Rosanna may be accustomed to the jet-setting lifestyle, but there’s one type of international travel that she’s dead against: transporting frightened cows from Waterford to Tripoli in a gruelling and highly stressful 10-day boat trip to a Libyan abattoir. … Read more.
In between training sessions for this year’s Wimbledon tournament, tennis champ and Olympic gold medallist Andy Murray has been overseeing the opening of a brand-new luxury hotel in Scotland – a hotel that we have been assured will be 100 per cent foie gras–free.
The renowned head chef of Cromlix House Hotel, Albert Roux, sent us an e-mail confirming that the cruelly produced foodstuff will never be found in his kitchen. “I’m totally, totally in agreement of not serving foie gras due to the cruelty inflicted on the animals”, he wrote, echoing … Read more.
Iconic singer, actor and comedian Charo has again revealed her compassionate side by writing to Spanish authorities on behalf of PETA asking that they reject an initiative to protect and promote bullfighting as a national cultural pastime.
As a professional entertainer and native Spaniard who made her name with her stirring interpretations of traditional flamenco music, Charo is something of an authority on Spanish culture – so she knows what she’s talking about when she declares that bullfighting does not belong in modern Spain. “I am ashamed that some in my … Read more.
Tamara Ecclestone, Formula 1 heiress, TV star and PETA ambassador for our campaign against foie gras, is no stranger to helping ducks and geese. She has spoken out against vile foie gras, a product made by painfully force-feeding birds large amounts of food, and she also starred in a PETA advert against it and even personally convinced Virgin, Mercedes, Red Bull Racing and others to stop serving it at Formula 1 events.
