It isn’t a secret that actress and animal activist Torrey DeVitto is strongly against animal cruelty. Now, she is teaming up with PETA – again – to stop animal dissection in schools and to teach students compassion.

As you can see below, the ad reads “You wouldn’t dissect her, so don’t dissect anyone!”

Most students think they have to cut animals open during science classes, and so did the “Pretty Little Liars” actress.

Torrey DeVitto and PETA say no to dissecting animals in classrooms“The whole thing just seemed so wrong and so creepy, but I didn’t think I had an option,” she told PETA.

Well, now she is encouraging students everywhere to stand up and say no to the gruesome activity. There are even alternatives to dissection like using computer animations teach students about the insides of a frog. Click here for more humane ideas.

This isn’t the first time DeVitto has teamed up with PETA. In 2012, she filmed a video against the fur industry. She’s truly loves all animals.

PETA also notes, “Most animals killed for dissection live in filthy, cramped conditions until the day they die for classroom experiments. Not only does virtual dissection save animals, it also saves schools money and helps the environment by sparing the use of toxic chemicals typically used to embalm animals.”

Watch DeVitto in action and see why this cause is so important to her.
