Some celebrities dip their toes into activism, but Elaine Hendrix lives the cause. She attends animal protection conferences, hits the street for protests, and uses her notoriety as a way to reach even more people with the message of justice that is so important to her.
Helping animals has been Elaine's driving force for over a decade. Everything fell into place for her after what she calls the "fortunate mistake" of watching an undercover fur industry video. She had always been an animal lover, and was already a vegetarian, but like so many people she didn't fully realize what was really happening to animals--what goes into a fur coat, a leather bag, a circus act, a carton of milk. Elaine was changed forever. From that moment on she became a full time animal advocate on top of her acting career.
