Chrissie Hynde is the singer/songwriter for The Pretenders. She is a staunch animal activist. From leading demos to writing countless letters to inviting PETA to table at her many tour stops to signing petitions to even opening her own vegan eatery, The VegiTerranean Restaurant, the plight of animals is always on Chrissie’s mind. And she’s never too busy to roll up her sleeves and pitch in.

In 2004, Hynde led a protest against KFC in France, where she and other activists smeared “blood” on the windows and were arrested. She’s also called for an end to New York City’s horse-drawn–carriage industry, taken part in demonstrations calling for a ban on mulesing and live export while touring in Australia, and spoken out against Iams.
