Things
got rockin’ at our “Summer Is No Vacation for Animals on Fur Farms”
demonstration in Portland, Maine, when Gavin Rossdale and his son Kingston
stopped by:

Gavin
thanked the demonstrators for being there and mentioned that he and his fur-free wife, Gwen Stefani, are teaching their
children to be kind to animals. Chad Ochocinco (whose sizzling PETA anti-fur ad might be part of the reason why he’s considered “the ultimate catch”)
tied the knot last weekend with fiancée Evelyn Lozada. So PETA sent the happy
couple—what else?—an elegant faux-fur throw from Donna Salyers’ Fabulous-Furs

Fur
foe Lea Michele is being recognized for
her animal activism. She earned a 2012 Do Something Award nomination for her work with
PETA to shut down New York
City’s cruel horse-drawn carriage industry. Be sure to cast your
vote here

PETA
pals are snagging nominations right and left this week. Eva Mendes, Penélope Cruz, Benicio Del Toro, Roselyn Sanchez, Martin Sheen, and Constance Marie are all nominated for 2012
National Council of La Raza ALMA
Awards

And
vegetarian wrestler Austin
Aries
just claimed the title
of TNA World Heavyweight Champion.

When 11-time Olympic medal winner Natalie Coughlin heads to London, she’ll
have some new reading material for the plane. PETA sent the swimmer vegan cookbooks and a vegetarian/vegan starter kit to help her maintain
her nearly 100 percent vegetarian diet on the road.

NFL
star Arian Foster is hopping on the vegan-athlete
bandwagon. His inspiring tweets were some of the best in the Twitterverse this
week:

Dominic Monaghan also took to Twitter to
defend animals this week, calling the show Swamp
People
, which glorifies the killing
of alligators, “death entertainment” that “continues to demonize
reptiles as monsters and animals that are okay to torture and kill.” He
then vowed, “I’m gonna stop them.”

Bob Barker is ready to put a stop
to the Calgary Stampede. Everyone’s
favorite game show host said of the cruel 10-day rodeo festival, in which three horses have already died
this year
, “I would like very much to see them celebrate the 100th anniversary of the
Calgary Stampede by saying that is enough animal cruelty. Let’s wind it up and
close it down.”
