Laura Guttridge is a well known animal activist who has participated in many demonstrations and protests against the use of animals for food, experimentation, and fur. She was also the  co-founded a small animal rights organization called Marion County Voices for Animals located in Central Florida in the early 1990s. The group worked to bring attention to the suffering of animals, and was instrumental in petitioning The Marion County Animal Shelter to stop killing unwanted stray animals with the cruel and out dated decompression chamber, and switch to more humane lethal injection.

For her devotion and respect for animals, Laura Guttridge was awarded The 2007 Humanitarian of The Year from The Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River County. In 2002 Laura was a top signature gatherer for a ballot initiative that banned the cruel confinement of pigs on factory farms in Florida.

While protesting for the rights of animals, Laura Guttridge was arrested twice, once in the Ocala National Forest while protesting the Youth Deer Hunt, and again while protesting against the use of fur.

Besides being a well known swimsuit model and animal rights activist, Laura has authored a book titled, “‘Gypsy the Christmas Cat’, which shows her unconditional love and care for animals.
