"Such an inspiring night last night with PETA:)" Lea Michele tweeted after attending PETA's 30th Anniversary Gala and Humanitarian Awards on Saturday night, along with other celebrity animal lovers like Sophia Bush and Kellan Lutz.

All three of these stars have adopted stray or homeless animals. Also showing support for animal rights was High School Musical's Matt Prokop.

"You know, you have a voice, use it," he says. "Don't just think, 'Oh, I'm young, I can't do anything about it,' because you can, and we can make a huge difference if we start at a young age."

Matt dished to us about his four-legged family members spilling, "I have three dogs and two cats back in Texas. The dogs' names are Bear, Belle, and Barkley. The cats' names are Vicious and Grey. Vicious was a really mean kitty cat when he was really little. He grew up, and now he looks like Garfield. He's a 35 pound cat, and is just the laziest creature I have ever met. Vicious is just the coolest cat."
How does Matt help other animals, besides his own? For one, he avoids the circus.

"Don't go see animals being tortured to walk in a circle," he says.

Like many teens, Matt was faced with dissecting an animal in science class. He now actively speaks out against this outdated learning technique.

"Read a book about dissection if you have to know about those things," he says. "Or even now, with technology, we can do it [digitally]."
