    Emmylou Harris Continues Her Animal Rights Efforts with Two New PSAs for PETA

    Emmylou Harris, a longtime animal lover and staunch advocate, has teamed up with the animal-rights group PETA to record two new and very timely public service announcements.

    In the first, Emmylou aims to raise awareness about the practice of keeping dogs chained outdoors, particularly during the bitter cold of the winter months. She urges listeners to bring their pets indoors, making them a more integral member of the family, for the benefit of both dog and family alike.

    The second spot encourages pet owners to spay or neuter their cats and dogs to help ensure that all dogs and cats are cared for. "It breaks my heart knowing that many dogs will never have a loving home and many cats will never have anything to purr about," she intones, offering this simple solution to help: "It's as easy as A-B-C: Animal Birth Control."

    Emmylou has worked tirelessly with organizations like PETA and the Humane Society of the United States, on behalf of animal rights, and has even established a small shelter in her backyard called Bonaparte's Retreat, designed to rescue dogs that were otherwise deemed unadoptable.

I am a dog fan. I thank Emmy Lou for putting her talent to work to further the fair treatment of these animals. I wish her a lot of luck in this endeavor.

I've always been a fan of Emmylou's music and her compassion for animals.I'm a volunteer at an animals shelter in New Zealand for almost 20 years now and use music to get the message across that we need to be a voice for animals.Emmylou I wish you all the very best in your fight for animal rights.Look forward to hearing more animal rights songs from you.Love your song 'Big Black Dog"

Thank you to Emmylou Harris for working tirelessly to end animal slavery. I hope I can see the day when the torture and murder of an animal will be seen in the same serious light as the torture and murder of a human being. Thank you for using your influence and stature to help the animals who " are unable to organize in defence of their own interests." (Henry Spira)
