Much like they did when Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Thomas tied the knot this summer, PETA has given given Anne Hathaway and Adam Shulman an animal-friendly wedding gift.

The animal rights organization informed the newly-married couple that they have sponsored a rescued calf, named Peter, in Hathaway’s name. The baby cow was rescued from “a filthy and abusive Pennsylvania dairy factory farm” and is now thriving at The Cow Sanctuary in Shiloh, N.J.

The organization arranged the sponsorship in honor of Hathaway’s vegan lifestyle and commitment to making her wedding day 100% animal-free. As we reported earlier, the 29-year-old actress has an all-vegan menu, very similar to the one at her engagement party earlier in the year; which included veggie burgers, cupcakes and truffle macaroni and cheese.

By going vegan, Anne is doing the best thing that she can to better her health and save calves like Peter from a life of suffering,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “Anne is living proof that vegans are beautiful from the inside out.”
