Celeb Sisters' Wildfire Rescue

10/27/2007 2:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Shane and Sia Barbi, aka the Barbi Twins, are helping spread the word that there weren't only people displaced by the wildfires that swept through Southern California this week -- there were pets, too.

On their website, www.thekittyliberationfront.org, the sisters have posted the contact information for dozens of animal shelters all across the area, as well as phone numbers for various VCA Animal Hospitals -- all of which are "no-kill" organizations. The cat in the above photo is actually a brown tabby the sisters found after the fire -- with no chip and no collar. All together now, "Awwwwwwww."

The models-turned-animal activists are coordinating some rescue efforts, calling for volunteers and the fostering of injured or lost animals. They are even working on a fundraiser tentatively scheduled for December 22. Shane tells TMZ, "People love animals like their family."

Barbi Twins Drag Out Dead Cat

Barbi Twins Shane and Sia, along with pals Daniel DiCriscio and Chyna Doll joined an animal rights protest in LA on Friday in support of stricter pet food laws. It was a wacky menagerie hoping to protect their precious pooches.

Dressed, as they explained, as dead black cats because it was Friday the 13th and they wanted to represent "the unlucky animals that died," Shane and Sia talked about the death of their beloved pet kitty who fell ill from poisoned pet food, and encouraged pet lovers to think more about what they feed their Fidos.

Cops Respond to Chyna Doll's Rabid Protest

2/14/2007 5:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Cops were forced to restrain angry animal rights activists during a protest led by Chyna Doll and the Barbi twins earlier today.

After declaring that certain UCLA psychologists "needed to get their asses kicked" for testing on monkeys, Chyna led an impassioned mob to the front door of the university's Neuropsychiatric Institute. As two men in white lab coats emerged from the building, the activists launched into a loud tirade.

As one of the men attempted to push a blaring bullhorn away from his ear, an enraged protester jumped off the stairs, screamed obscenities and attempted to headbutt him. Cops quickly broke up the charged situation, and the protest continued.

No one was injured. No comment from the monkeys.
