Don't Discriminate Non-Native Animals

 
     
Shane and Sia, the Barbi Twins, have always been involved with animals but as they became more aware of the cruelties that were happening to animals they determined to dedicate their lives to the safety of all animals. They became very active in local spay and neuter and Trap, Neuter and Return (TNR) programs, in protests against animal cruelty, vivisection, zoos, puppy mills, circuses and eventually made hands on efforts to rescue animals left behind during natural disasters. They were involved with helping lobby for animal bills, such as the horse slaughter bill, the pet food safety bill and the cat declaw ban. They are involved with volunteering at shelters and help with adoptions - Adopt Don't Shop!

The
Twin
Bunnies
Goals

They collected friends and colleagues to help in their endeavors and decided to give their animal rights movement a name, Twin Bunnies. The twins are involved in every aspects of both animals rights and animal rescue.

Who are Shane and Sia Barbi:

They are international celebrity models turned vegan health spokeswomen and authors turned animal activist. They began modeling separately since they were seven and became a collective household name "The Barbi Twins" in the 90's with their top selling magazine covers and calendars.

They freely admit to struggling with eating disorders. In fact, Shane and Sia turned their health issues around through education (degrees in nutrition) and are sought out to lecture for high schools and universities nationwide, teach at the Learning Annex and have written two health and fitness books. Their latest book stresses the benefits of becoming a raw vegan for both the sake of the body and the Eco crisis we are all facing.   To learn more about them you can visit their website at www.BarbiTwins.com

The Twins and Animals:

Shane and Sia, the Barbi Twins, have always been involved with animals but as they became more aware of the cruelties that were happening to animals they determined to dedicate their lives to the safety of all animals. They became very active in local spay and neuter and Trap, Neuter and Return (TNR) programs, in protests against animal cruelty, vivisection, zoos, puppy mills, circuses and eventually made hands on efforts to rescue animals left behind during natural disasters. They were involved with helping lobby for animal bills, such as the horse slaughter bill, the pet food safety bill and the cat declaw ban. They are involved with volunteering at shelters and help with adoptions - Adopt Don't Shop!

Shane and Sia Barbi grew up separately, but both aspired to be veterinarians. Initially they studied Veterinarian technology and also became active in sports (leading them into health and fitness). The twins were experienced horse riders and trainers for the US Equestrian Drill Team. They grew up on ranches in separate states and both became involved with showing and breeding of all animals when they were young, which they are presently against.

The twins no longer believe in any type of breeding, showing or any type of exploitation because it promotes animals as property (specifically property which must be perfect) instead of live precious creatures with individual personalities. They state that "responsible breeding is an oxymoron. Until we have adopted every animal from every shelter, we do not believe in any type of breeding or shows that promote pure breeds, it's 'pet-racism'." The twins believe that we all should embrace "imperfect" and older pets as family members. The twins adore the type of dog shows such as Nuts for Mutts that celebrates mixtures and the character of each dog.

The Barbi Twins are active in every aspect of animal causes such as assisting animal bills to pass, participating in protests against animal experimentation, circuses and zoos. They also help promote the closures of puppy mills and breeders and educate rescues about the dangers of hoarding, and they are also working with group that help with endangered species.  Most of all Shane and Sia are hands-on with the spay and neuter programs to help prevent "pet over population". They promote hands on volunteering, as they have at your local shelters.

The Barbi Twins have numerous Hollywood projects and media events that all focus on helping the animals, which include two Animal Rights movies, a wild horse documentary.

Shane and Sia totally dedicate themselves to rescue and fighting for animal rights.  They continuously turn down work that does not focus solely on helping with the welfare of animals.

 

"We want to dedicate our lives to animals. We want to make sure they are free of cruelty, abuse, neglect, and death and not be used for our entertainment or gluttony. Animals should be left in their own natural environment, the way nature intended. We are guardians for the companion animals, we do not own them like a piece of furniture. The pet population should be humanly dealt with spay and neuter or TNR (trap, neuter and return), never management by death, which is a human convenience. Al of us have the responsibility to protect and care for animals, be their voices and fight for their rights. They are the only true innocent victims. People have choices, animals don't.

Bottom line, we as humans have the choice to protect or destroy. And as evolved beings we should choose to protect instead of destroying.

It is your business to wear, eat, use or abuse what you want. But if what you wear, eat, use or abuse feels pain, then it's no longer your right, it's their right!"

- Shane and Sia Barbi
