Pamela Partners with Vegan Butcher Shop to Promote Animal Rights

For the month of October, the Pamela Anderson Foundation and Canada’s vegan butcher shop The Very Good Butchers (VGB) will work together to promote animal-rights and plant-based foods. Throughout the month, VGB will share a portion of its sales with the foundation—which was created by vegan actress Pamela Anderson to support her fight for animal rights. “It is a thrill to have my foundation associated with a butcher: a 21st-century butcher who uses technology to create plant foods that help animals, human health, and our planet,” Anderson said.

Founded by couple James Davison and Tania Friesen in 2016, VGB grew from selling its vegan meats and cheeses at local farmers markets to a storefront in Victoria, BC in 2017. Within four months, VGB expanded to a larger storefront at the Victoria Public Market where it sells burgers, subs, mac and cheese, and loaded fries made with its products. The company’s vegan meats—such as ribs, bangers, and pepperoni—are also now available at retailers across Canada and as part of a subscription butcher box.

In October, customers who use the code “Pamela” for VGB purchases will receive a 10-percent discount and 25 percent of sales from these purchases will be donated to Anderson’s foundation. VGB will also launch specially marked packages at retailers and donate 10-percent of sales from these packs to the foundation. “We’re really excited to be able to do our part to support The Pamela Anderson Foundation in its efforts to spread awareness for animal rights, and to encourage plant-based diets,” VGB CEO Mitchel Scott said. “With such a massive platform, including over one million followers on Instagram, Pamela is a powerful change-agent, and we’re honored to have the Very Good Butchers brand be featured as part of her campaign.”

In June, VGB began trading on the Canadian Securities Exchange under the ticker “VERY,” and within days its stock skyrocketed by 800 percent. The company is currently expanding to the United States, a move supported by $8.5 million that VGB raised in the closing of oversubscribed funds from its public offering.

Pamela Anderson Offers to Adopt Dogs Used for Animal Testing

The iconic holiday song may be “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” but all Pamela Anderson wants this Christmas is to welcome a few furry friends into her home. The Home Improvement star’s latest move as an animal rights activist is to pen a letter to the powers that be at Texas A&M University asking them to release the dogs they use for testing.

“I’ve always opened my home to animals in need and hope to welcome these dogs soon,” Pamela, 52, exclusively told Closer Weekly in a statement. “They’re at the top of my Christmas list.”

The letter — which Closer Weekly is exclusively revealing below and was sent on Thursday, December 5 — is addressed to Michael K. Young, the president of Texas A&M University. It reads:

“Thank you for ending the breeding of dogs with canine muscular dystrophy at Texas A&M University. Even so, I’m still deeply troubled by the thought of the golden retrievers and other dogs still trapped in the muscular dystrophy laboratory. I’m writing to offer to adopt these remaining dogs.

I’ve been a proud guardian of golden retrievers for many years. My golden retriever Star was my beloved companion for 17 years, from the start of my career in Hollywood. He even sat with me on the Baywatch set. After he passed away, I shared my home with other beautiful golden retrievers: JoJo, King, and now Zeus, who could use some canine friends. I’d like nothing more than to give the dogs still in your laboratory the same love and care that I’ve given my other dear companions.

Please commit to ending Texas A&M’s muscular dystrophy experiments on precious golden retrievers and to releasing the remaining dogs in the laboratory for adoption. I’m ready to welcome them into my family.”

According to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (a.k.a. PETA), Texas A&M University had been breeding golden retrievers — among other types of dogs — to have muscular dystrophy so they can run tests on them in the hopes of finding a cure for humans. In March 2017, PETA published a video. that showed what these beloved creatures go through, prompting notable figures — including Lily Tomlin and Paul McCartney among many others. — to speak out.

Then, in September 2019, Texas A&M University vowed to stop breeding the golden retrievers and other dogs to have muscular dystrophy. However, the experiments have not ended. A PETA spokesperson told Closer Weekly they believe there are roughly 35-40 canines left who are still being subjected to laboratory conditions, which is why Pamela — a longtime critic of the commercial fur industry and a proud vegan — is speaking out and offering them a loving home.

Pamela Anderson stuns in low-cut swimsuit on luxury yacht

Pamela Anderson is enjoying her Thanksgiving holiday week on a yacht.

The 52-year-old was spotted on a luxury boat in Gold Coast, Australia, where she was busy filming a commercial and posing for a photoshoot.

Anderson stunned in a low-cut white swimsuit which she paired with aviator sunglasses and a glass of wine.

While down under, the former “Baywatch” star penned a heartfelt note about the wildfires affecting the country and urged people to take climate change seriously.

“I arrived on the Gold Coast this week after spending almost a month following news about the devastating fires in Australia,” she wrote in an open letter that was published by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

“I realize that, for some, now is a sensitive time to broach the subject of climate change, but I trust you will agree that having these difficult yet important conversations now might save lives in the future.”

“As you’ve already noted, the science is clear: climate change has played a key role in the severity of this year’s bushfires. But acknowledging this is only half the battle. Australia has one of the highest greenhouse-gas emissions per capita of any nation, largely driven by one sector: animal agriculture.”

“Just as your government is surely working on emissions-saving energy and transport policies, you could lead by example by implementing a climate-friendly vegan food policy for government functions, along with transitioning the menu at Sometimes Strangers’ Restaurant at Parliament House to an all-vegan one.”

“The United Nations and leading scientists are calling for the reduction or elimination of animal-derived food consumption as a matter of urgency, and in the largest study of its kind, researchers at the University of Oxford concluded that cutting animal products from our diets is the ‘single biggest way’ to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and conserve water and land. Australia is burning.”

“It’s time to listen to scientists and take direct action,” she wrote.
