STARS COME OUT FOR PETA's 2001 BIRTHDAY PARTY BASH
Jenna Elfman & Thomas Gibson
Hollywood’s Viper Room and New York’s SPA nightclub are a long way from the Maryland basement apartment in which PETA began two decades ago, but they were the perfect venues for “the world’s most rock ’n’ roll charity” (as Chrissie Hynde calls PETA) to celebrate its 20th anniversary.
Chrissie threw a private party on the Sunset Strip, wowing her guests with songs she belted out with her band, The Pretenders. Celebrity celebrants included Dharma and Greg’s Jenna Elfman and Thomas Gibson, Bill Maher, Tobey Maguire, Mark McGrath, Shalom Harlow, Morrissey, Pamela Anderson, Marcus Schenkenberg, and Alicia Silverstone.
Judge Judy and her husband, Judge Sheindlin, both support The North Shore Animal League; volunteering time to encourage others to spay and neuter their pets, adopt from shelters, and they educate people on the connection between violence to animals and violence against humans. In one court case a young man kicked a relative's small dog in the head so hard that it went comatose. The dog had to be euthanasized. He had gone into a bedroom and the little dog followed him in, yapping. The yapping annoyed the guy so he kicked the dog. (The relative was suing the man for killing her pedigree dog). Judge Judy asked the guy's girlfriend and mother of his baby if she trusted such a violent man around the baby. The young mother said "Yes," but Judge Judy gave her a warning that anyone who violently attacks a helpless animal for yapping may do the same to a crying child.
