Who Are the Top 10 Celebrity Animal Lovers?
06. Bill Bailey
Comedian and musician Bill Bailey is a supporter of International Animal Rescue and Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, and also patron of the Sumatran Orangutan Society. In 2013 he launched ‘Ape-Ril’, a campaign asking people to support them by growing a beard, saying: “We share 96.4% of our DNA with orangutans – some of us, perhaps, a little more… I’ve been told I look like a man of the forest.”
05. Alicia Silverstone
The actress and author is a longtime proponent of veganism and has partnered with PETA on many awareness-raising campaigns, speaking out against animal testing on cosmetic products, and factory farming.
Her website, The Kind Life, examines the benefits of a vegan lifestyle and promotes animal rights issues. She has adopted many dogs, and urges others to adopt rescue animals. Alicia Silverstone says: “The only thing that makes any sense about being a celebrity to me is this — being able to make a difference.”
