It’s no secret that “The Big Bang Theory” star Kaley Cuoco is a huge animal lover and advocate, but she recently spoke to All Animals (the Humane Society of the United States‘ magazine) to shed a bit more light on the issue.
Cuoco, who has previously defended pit bulls and helped raise money to fight Canada’s annual seal hunt, told All Animals, “I’ve always loved animals. As a kid we had dogs. But my passion got very strong maybe eight years ago when I rescued my first dog [a pit bull named Norman].”
When asked about her desire to join the HSUS’ Protect Seals team on the Canadian ice floes, where the annual seal hunt takes place, she elaborated, “I think as a—I hate even using this—as a “celebrity,” people think we say a few things, and then that’s it, and we put it to bed. I need to show my fans, and people that agree with me and disagree with me, that I’m willing to go out there. I want to see it face to face.”
When asked if she discussed her passion for animal rights on set, Cuoco said, “Everyone that I work with knows how I feel about animals. Even this day that I was obsessed with the seal hunt, I was literally in the corner at work, and they’re like, ‘What’s going on?’ I’m like, ‘seal hunt.’ I was obsessed.”
