Learn about the not-so-glamorous life of animal actors.
In the movies, superheroes usually wear capes and fly around the city fighting bad guys and ridding the world of all things evil. But in the real world, superheroes are mostly people like Dayton Jones, a 20-year-old vegan musician who recently saved the life of a cat in need.
While Dayton was driving to New York to visit a friend, something caught the reflection of his headlights on the highway. As it turns out, that something turned out to be someone—an orange tabby cat, likely a stray, who’d been hit by a car and left for dead on the side of the road. Dayton quickly turned his car around, and when he found that the injured cat was still breathing, he called PETA.

With our help, Dayton was able to locate the closest emergency vet clinic and get the suffering kitty, now named Georgia, to safety.
After Dayton took her in, the clinic’s veterinarian was able to take a closer look at Georgia’s injuries (two broken legs) and rushed the sweet kitty into surgery.
The good news? Georgia is officially on the mend, and once she fully recovers, she’ll be taken to a local animal shelter, where she’ll have the chance to find a loving forever home—all thanks to Dayton!
To thank him for being a true superhero for Georgia, peta2 is giving Dayton a well-deserved Compassion in Action Award!
