Country Stars Champion Animal Right

DOLLY PARTON and EMMYLOU HARRIS have teamed up with animal rights group PEOPLE FOR THE ETHICAL TREATMENT OF ANIMALS (PETA) to film new public service announcements.

Parton donated the bluegrass song WILL HE BE WAITING FOR ME? for a spot starring comic KATHY NAJIMY as a woman rushing home to take her dog out, as a reminder that the furry animals need company.

Meanwhile, Harris' commercial was filmed inside Nashville, Tennessee's GRAND OLE OPRY and features the singer declaring, "I'm a proud member of some fine organisations. One is the Grand Ole Opry. Another is PETA.

"PETA distributes unwanted furs to the homeless, builds dog houses for poverty stricken families and has convinced cosmetics companies to replace animal tests with more reliable alternatives."
