Los Angeles – Please see the assertion beneath from PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange on the demise of Lisa Marie Presley:
Lisa Marie Presley was not solely a proficient singer-songwriter, loving spouse, and mom but in addition a pal to animals. After studying that an Elvis impersonator had named a chimpanzee after her and was exploiting her for revenue, she efficiently teamed up with PETA to realize the discharge of her namesake to a sanctuary. And she or he didn’t cease there. Early within the COVID-19 pandemic, when shelters had been in determined want of foster households, Lisa Marie and her twin daughters set a beautiful instance by opening their house and hearts to 2 canine. Although the “Lights Out” singer has handed away, her shiny imaginative and prescient for animals will proceed to encourage all of us at PETA.
PETA—whose motto reads, partly, that “animals will not be ours to abuse in any manner”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For extra data, please go to PETA.org or comply with the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
