Hollywood bombshell Eva Mendes is the latest celebrity to have signed up for the anti-fur movement heralded by PETA.

The ‘Hitch’ star used to wear fur earlier,but having a dog as a pet has changed her ways forever and now she is fronting the animal rights campaign group’s latest expose of the fur industry,reported Mirror online.

“I have a dog named Hugo and it literally changed my life. Every choice that I make,I always think about my little Hugo and think,’God,would I eat him? Would I cage him up,and you know,would I skin him?’ No,of course not,” said Mendes.

PETA’s new campaign includes an investigation into fur farms and markets in China.

“Millions of animals are killed for their pelts each year. The thing is,I didn’t always know how animals were killed for their fur and I even wore fur once myself. But when I learned how cruel the fur industry is – and that there are no laws protecting these animals – I swore that I’d never wear it again,” said Mendes.
