Avid animal activist Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting is once again showing her love and support for animals. This time around it’s for seals.

Known for her love of pit bulls, “The Big Bang Theory” actress recently stepped out to voice her opposition of Canada’s annual seal hunt. Cuoco-Sweeting hosted a “Wheels for Seals” event at SoulCycle in Los Angeles to raise awareness and finally put an end (hopefully sooner rather than later) to the commercial slaughter of these precious animals.

Many gathered for Cuoco-Sweeting’s event, where they biked and raised money for the Humane Society of the United States and its Protect Seals Campaign, which is all about stopping the annual slaughter of baby seals in Canada.

Every spring, the Canadian government grants fishermen the right to club or shoot to death hundreds of thousands of seals for their fur. Since 2002, more than 2 million baby harp seals have been killed.

Well, the actress wants anyone and everyone to help put an end to this horrific act, which is why she organized the event and even created T-shirts shown here. She definitely isn’t one to hold back when it comes to any beloved creature.

As the actress expressed via Instagram alongside a photo with her husband, “We will end this cruelty towards our animals once and for all. We will be their voice.”

Like Cuoco-Sweeting, if you’re looking to support an animal friendly cause, then head on over to her page at HSUS and lend a helping hand.
