It appears that Rob Zombie, the purveyor of graphic violence and slinger of salacious , actually has a soft(er) side. Honestly, we don’t know him from dirt, but the fact that he’s narrating the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival Puppy Rescue Mission PSA, directed by Strati Hovartos, shows us that he has a noble and kind heart.
The press release about this offers a good explanation of what the Puppy Rescue Mission is:
The Puppy Rescue Mission (“TPRM”) is the brainchild of president and founding member Anna Cannan. Anna’s idea for TPRM began when her fiancé, Chris, was deployed to and stationed in Afghanistan. TPRM’s primary mission is to help bring home the companions to our soldiers serving in a war zone. These companions already have homes waiting for them — they just need help getting there. TPRM believes that these beloved companions have at times not only physically saved our soldiers from harm but have also filled an emotional need for a sense of home and normalcy in a hostile and dangerous environment.
Last summer, Robdonated his incredible truck featured on History’s Counting Cars to TPRM. At the time, Rob Zombie stated:
… soldiers in Afghanistan would find these dogs and bond with them and sneak them on the bases, even though they weren’t supposed to have them. It was probably the only moment of sanity for these guys, when they spent time with them….But they weren’t allowed to take them home, and if they could, it was so expensive. That was a cause I could really understand and get behind.
