    Please join the “walk for farm animals” in October in
    your city!!
    I am marching on October 4, 2008, in Miami. Find out
    from Peta, where your local walk is organized.
    Every time I joined the walk, we made an impression
    on many people who still have NO idea about the
    treatment of our dear farm animals.

    How exciting! I am so happy to have Rue as a supporter – I was so sad to hear Estelle Getty died – all of you were such a great team! I hope to hear from Bea and Betty too – all of you are so great! Thanks again – I look forward to new blogs from you! -Elizabeth :D

    Years ago I saw the PETA video “Midwest Pig Farm Investigation” and Rue McClanahan narrated it. At the time I had a public access show and I ran the video. The abuses uncovered were so extreme that the management forced me to put a warning at the beginning of the show. Rue also did some PSAs for PETA – I remember one she did with Betty White and Bea Arthur against wearing fur. I also remember Bea Arthur speaking out against KFC and animals in entertainment. These women really are golden!

    I’ve been in the AR movement since I was 30—and now I’m nearly 51, and so glad to have made it to my “PETA Prime.” This site is a great idea. Rue’s been on board for at least that long, and it’s great to see her online, too!
