(JERSEY CITY, N.J.) — Jersey Shore’s JWoww and Snooki have run afoul of PETA, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. No, the reality show starlets’ animal prints aren’t made of real hides, but the apparent dyeing of their dogs’ fur has led the animal rights group to blast the guidettes.
Their dogs Bella and Noel were seen sporting pink and purple fur while on a walk with the pair, who are filming their Jersey Shore spin-off this week in Jersey City.
“Dyeing a companion animal’s fur causes the animal stress and can lead to complications or allergic reactions that endanger the animal’s health,” a PETA spokesperson told E! “Our dogs and cats love us regardless of how we look; we should extend the same kindness to them.”
