“The Secret Life of the American Teenager” star Megan Park has joined the list of celebs who star in PETA’s anti-fur ad campaigns.

Park appears with her rescue dog in a peta2 PSA and picture that says, “If you wouldn’t wear your dog, please don’t wear any fur or fur trim,” and “The only difference between our ‘best friends’ and animals killed for their fur is how we treat them.”

peta2 says, “Megan wouldn’t dream of wearing Tyson, the rescued mutt who costars in the PSA. Imagine if Tyson lived the life of an animal killed for fur. Imagine if he spent his entire life in a cramped, filthy cage, only to be killed by workers using the cheapest methods available, such as suffocation, electrocution, or poison. Or imagine if he were caught in the wild by a steel-jaw trap, only to be strangled, beaten, or stomped to death by a trapper…Tyson will sleep safely tonight, but millions of rabbits, minks, beavers, foxes, chinchillas, raccoons, and bears face this cruel fate all for the sake of fashion. If you wouldn’t wear Tyson, please don’t wear any other animal.”
