As a longtime supporter for animal rights, Pamela said she would challenge ALS Association 'to stop animal testing' instead of completing the Ice Bucket Challenge.

While a lot of celebrities have completed Ice Bucket Challenge, which is intended to raise awareness of ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease, refused to do it. She posted a long message on Facebook on Wednesday, August 20 to challenge ALS Association "to stop animal testing" for ALS research.

The 47-year-old actress wrote, "Sorry -I can't bring myself to do your Ice bucket challenge. I enjoy a good dare- It's always good to bring awareness - in fun, creative ways / I don't want to take away from that. but it had me thinking. Digging a bit deeper. I found that we may not be aligned - in our messages. So...- I thought Instead / I'd challenge ALS to stop Animal testing."

Pamela went on describing the various methods used in the research, "Recent experiments funded by the ALS Association, mice had holes drilled into their skulls, were inflicted with crippling illnesses, and were forced to run on an inclined treadmill until they collapsed from exhaustion. Monkeys had chemicals injected into their brains and backs and were later killed and dissected."

She concluded her long-written message with, "Please, help scientists make real progress toward treating and curing human diseases by visiting HumaneSeal.org to find and support charities that never harm animals and which pour their time and resources into advanced, promising, human-relevant cures."

Other celebrities like Carey Hart, and also refused to do the Ice Bucket Challenge but still gave their donations. Each of them posted on Instagram a screenshot of their donation confirmation along with their reason not to take the challenge.
