  • Paul McCartney's Plea: Rescue Greyhounds From Local Dog Blood Farm
    on October 12, 2017 at 11:00 am

    Patterson Veterinary Supply, Inc., still hasn’t followed through on its pledge to help the 150 or so greyhounds revealed in PETA’s exposé to be suffering in squalor at Texas-based The Pet Blood Bank, Inc., whose blood products Patterson distributed — so today, Paul McCartney sent a letter on PETA's behalf calling on Patterson’s parent company to step up and help rescue the dogs from the facility in Cherokee. “I am writing to appeal to you to step up, make good on your earlier pledge, and rescue the dogs whose blood your company has used for many years, knowing that these 150 or so dogs — who were allowed to get into appalling shape and who are now kept in a-mile­less-than-ideal conditions — helped your business at a cost to their wellbeing,” wrote McCartney. "I have had dogs since I was a boy and loved them all dearly, including Martha who was my companion for about 15 years and about whom I wrote the song “Martha, My Dear.” I’m sure you know that dogs need affection and comfort — a bed to lie on, warmth in the winter, the opportunity to run and play, and just like you and me, they crave happiness and companionship. “I join my friends at PETA in asking you to pay these greyhounds back, and to let them retire from the dirt-floored, barren conditions in which they are kept isolated and alone, some of them cringing at the footfall of the person coming to take their blood again and again. They had a hard life on the racetrack, and they will die without love if left where they are. I’ve seen pictures of how they have suffered from nails that have grown back into their paw pads, as well as from infected gums and rotted teeth, and I’m told that some have apparently even died from a lack of water.

  • The Vamps’ James McVey: Chicks Dig Vegetarians
    on October 11, 2016 at 4:30 pm

    James McVey, the lead guitarist for The Vamps, has proved that he’s as compassionate as he is talented by starring in his second PETA campaign to promote kindness to animals – this time through meat-free meals. In the advert, McVey proclaims that “Chicks Dig Vegetarians” and goes on to stress that choosing plant-based fare is an important and easy way to reduce animal suffering, saying, “There are tons of ways that we can all help animals, and I think number one should be keeping them off our plate”. In an exclusive video interview with PETA , McVey points out that smart, sensitive chickens don’t belong in recipes any more than puppies do: “Chickens are intelligent animals, just like dogs and cats. … [T]hey’re not animals that should be used for nuggets or drumsticks.” More: […]
