Charity: Peta & Animal Rights

Ryan loves animals, we all know this.
Back in 2001 he saved a dog from a kennel and that dog is "the greatest love of my life" as Ryan said. The dog is George.

Among others charity activites Ryan is involved in Peta.

In 2003 - when he was still quite unknown as the Notebook who gave him fame was still to come - he wrote a letter to KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken), urging the company to implement PETA’s recommended basic animal-welfare standards, which will stop the worst abuses of the nearly 750 million chickens who are raised and killed every year for KFC restaurants.

In 2013 he wrote another letter after learning  that dairy farmers routinely mutilate calves in a cruel process called dehorning. When he heard that workers burn away calves’ horn tissue with hot irons or caustic chemicals, gouge their horns out with sharp metal scoops, or chop off developed horns with guillotines and handsaws, he took his concerns straight to the top.
SO he wrote to Jerry Kozack, president and Ceo of the National Milk Producers Federaration, urging him to require farmers to phase our dehorning by breeding for polled, or naturally hornless, cattle.

Then, few months ago he wrote an opinion peace titled  "A tiny cage is not Life" on The Globe and Mail (a Canadian Newspaper) about the pigs.

This is how Ryan has opened his article:

I take my beloved dog George with me almost everywhere I go. Once, George even shared the stage with me on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
The bond I have with George is not unique. Like me, countless Canadians share their homes and lives with pets they consider to be part of the family. We know that they have individual personalities and quirks (George loves apples, for example) and that they feel both physical and mental pain.

And we're in 2015  now.
On  22 June Ryan took the pen in his hand once again for the birds. He wrote to Costco's CEO urging him to eliminate cage confinement from the company’s egg supply.
After an undercovered investigation, a video was released about the treatment reserved to chickens by Costco. You can watch it here below:

Ryan wrote demanding the warehouse club stock cage-free eggs after this video footage obtained by the The Humane Society.
"Video footage revealed abhorrent cruelty including rows upon rows of birds confined in filth-laden cages with the mummified corpses of their cage-mates —eating, sleeping, defecating, and laying eggs on top of dead birds — and hens’ wings, legs, and necks trapped in the corroded wires of their battery cages"
