Prime Inspirations: Ali MacGraw

Posted by at 5:59 AM | Permalink | Comments (4)


Prime Inspirations: Ali MacGraw by Guest BloggerWe would like to send a quick thank-you note to Ali MacGraw, who recently recorded a PETA public service announcement (PSA) that will be sent to television stations across the country this winter.

The PSA is an exposé of the Chinese fur industry and features graphic investigation footage of horrific conditions on Chinese fur farms.

In an exclusive interview with PETA, MacGraw, whose numerous credits include Love Story and The Getaway, explained, “I’ve had dogs and cats for most of my life, and every time I hear about the atrocities of the fur trade in China, all I can think of is my dog draped around my neck on the collar of a cardigan, my cat as cuffs as a throw-away fashion statement coat, and it makes me crazy.”

Please be advised that this video includes scenes that may be disturbing.

This is not the first time that MacGraw has recorded a PSA for PETA. In 2005, during Hurricane Wilma, she recorded a special message that was sent to TV stations across the U.S. advising people to make sure that they do not leave animals behind when they evacuate. With animals often being the last ones to receive help in natural disasters, MacGraw wanted to make sure that people included all their loved ones as they made emergency plans.

Ali MacGraw, we would like to applaud you for being an outspoken animal advocate and anti-fur activist over the years and for your passion and dedication to the cause. You are an inspiration to all of us!

    I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO THANK ALI MacGRAW FOR SPEAKING UP FOR PETA AGAINST WEARING FUR. PLEASE ALL ANIMAL LOVERS SPEAK UP AGAINST SKINNING ANIMALS FOR THEIR FURS. IT IS HORRIBLE THAT CHINA SKINS CATS AND DOGS, AND ANY LIVING ANIMAL FOR THEIR FUR OR SKIN. I HOPE EVERYONE SEE’S THIS ON T.V. SO THEY REALIZE WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE WORLD. CHINESE FUR INDUSTRIES-CLOSE THE DOORS FOR GOOD. MAYBE THE PEOPLE WHO DO THE SKINNING SHOULD BE “SKINNED”, AND SEE HOW IT FEELS!!

    A great thank you to Ali MacGraw for her involvement. It is encouraging for the rest of us that celebrities like her are willing to take the lead in making people aware of the atrocities that are going on to all living and sentient beings around the world. With the present state of technology in communications, nobody can use the excuse “we just did not know” any longer.
