We love when anyone wears our gear, but we also love when people feel the need to write about it on their social media! ATA was recently featured on AStylePixie.com. A Style Pixie is a Los Angeles based style blog created by Erika Fermina, stylist, model, feminist, and full time nerd. We just wanted to share the goods with you all. It can be seen here.

The infamous Kathy Griffin has stepped up and joined the "Adopt Don't Shop" Campaign. The proud pet parent of two rescued Labrador Retrievers, and upcoming host of E!’s Fashion Police is the latest in a long list of doggedly devoted luminaries to pose for Last Chance for Animals’ “Adopt, Don’t Shop” PSA. Other high-profile pals to those with paws who have shown their support for the campaign include former Sons of Anarchy star Ron Perlman, Mike Wolfe from The History Channel series American Pickers, and Joanna Krupa, animal advocate and star of the reality series The Real Housewives of Miami.
Established in 1984 by actor Chris De Rose, Last Chance for Animals has helped to shine a light on a number of issues that affect our barking buddies, ranging from dog fighting and greyhound racing to the plight of puppy mill dogs.
2014 was a great year for animal rescues, and we think 2015 will be even bigger!
A Bullhook is an elephant goad with a sharp spike and a hook that is used to prod into a state of motion. These are most commonly used by Circus' to motion elephants and other large animals. Recently Bullhooks were banned in Los Angeles causing many circus acts to cross LA off their tour. This ban has just now reached Oakland, CA causing Circus acts to once again cross another city of their tour. These are two major victories against another cruel unjust act against animals. This ban may of not been possible if not for major Celebs backing the cause. Davey Havok, the lead singer of the band AFI and an Oakland native, says, “The use of a bullhook is cruel and unjust. We need only imagine being held captive and beaten for the sake of another’s entertainment to know that this tool of torture and slavery should be banned.” Hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons, who has long been vocal against circus bullhook abuse, says, “I’ve been fortunate to have had the opportunity to observe elephants in their natural habitat in South Africa. The magnificent animals I encountered weren’t performing headstands or standing on tubs like they do at the circus, where they’re routinely beaten with bullhooks. Instead, they were tending to their young, running free, and living in peace. I urge the Oakland City Council to ban this weapon that causes elephants such immense suffering.” These are small victories but none the less a huge step in the right direction! You may not be a huge time celebrity but maybe the next time you decide to go to the circus do a bit of reasearch and please do not support anyone who uses the bullhook on their animals. Who knows, your city may be the next to ban the bullhook.... Read the full story here
