Actress Pamela Anderson has come forward to save dogs, affected by the BP oil spill in America.
The former Baywatch star, who is an animal rights activist skipped an after party hosted by David Hasselhoff to fly overnight to New Orleans and help evacuate dogs with PETA, Us magazine reported.
“There are far more dogs than homes everywhere, but the crisis in Louisiana is prompting people to open their hearts and doors to animals in trouble,” Anderson said in a statement.
The 43-year-old beauty, who is also the honorary director of PETA, personally paid local adoption, spay-and-neuter and flea treatment costs to relocate the pooches to Virginia, where PETA is based."The real key to both the local and national homeless animal crisis is to spay and neuter dogs and cats and to always adopt – never buy from pet shops," Anderson said.
BP spill in the Gulf of Mexico is the largest offshore spill in US history and continues to cause extensive damage to marine and wildlife habitats.
