Angelina Jolie - Peta Gift Angelina And Brad With Rescued Chinchillas

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have been given a very special wedding present - a pair of rescued chinchillas.

The couple wed in secret in France at the weekend (23Aug14) and now activists at Peta have honoured the animal-loving pair by naming two newly-free pets after them.

Brad and Angelina are up for adoption at Peta's Virginia headquarters after the organisation's leaders closed down one of the largest chinchilla ranches in California.

Announcing the furry wedding gift, Peta senior vice president Lisa Lange tells Wenn, "Among Brad's and Angelina's kind acts are their animal rescues, as well as making their wardrobes fur-free, so naming two of Peta's rescued chinchillas in their honour seems an apt wedding present.

"We can all follow this couple's great example, and help chinchillas like Brad and Angelina, by refusing to wear any real animal fur."

The pets are two of more than 400 chinchillas rescued from Valley View Chinchilla Ranch, where animals deemed not suitable as pets were electrocuted and skinned so their pelts could be made into bedspreads, coats and scarves.

Peta bosses have sent the newlyweds a letter alerting them to their wedding present.
