Ex-Baywatch babe Pamela Anderson has taken her animal welfare crusade to a new level, adopting two new dogs after they were abandoned at animal shelters in Louisiana following the massive Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
The actress teamed up with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) to walk and relocate around 50 pooches to Virginia. Many cash-strapped pet owners in the oil-spill affected regions abandoned their pets in recent months, after losing their jobs or being forced to move out of the area.
Pamela, who has two sons, Brandon, 13, and Dylan, 11, from her marriage to ex-husband Tommy Lee said: “My son was hoping we could take all 50. People can’t afford to feed their families, so the family member that gets left behind and has to go is the pet.”
Anderson, PETA’s honorary director, paid all the expenses and costs to relocate the dogs.
