Animal-loving rockstar Joan Jett is heading down south to show love for some needy animals.

Jett will be making an appearance at Safe Harbor Animal Sanctuary’s Celebrity Dog Wash on Saturday, March 6, in Jupiter, Florida.

Jett is a passionate vegetarian and a huge fan of the sanctuary, which, unlike many, accept pit bulls. About her involvement, Joan said:

“I think too many people today think of animals as a nice piece of furniture, or a nice pair of shoes or something. It’s always important to remember that animals think and feel pain. I think they reason — I believe a lot of things that other people don’t about animals and their intelligence. Humans beings are a little arrogant in thinking that we know what they think and how they think. I just find it very rewarding being with them, and whatever I can do to give back, I do.”

The event begins at noon in Carlin Park and Joan and the Blackhearts are scheduled to perform at 7:30 p.m. To find out more about this event and learn how you can attend, visit SafeHarbor.JupiterDaily.com.
