Chatsworth, Calif. — Girlfriends Films is donating $1000 to Best Friends Animal Society on behalf of popular lesbian erotica performer Jelena Jensen. The monetary gift is the November selection for Girlfriend’s Films monthly charity program. Past charities include Lambda Legal, NPR, Cancer Research Institute, and more. Jelena’s choice, Best Friends Animal Society, is dedicated to ensuring a time when there are no longer homeless pets.

“Anyone who knows me, knows what a huge animal lover I am,” states Jelena. “I’m also a huge proponent of spaying and neutering pets, as well as adopting pets rather than buying bred animals. I own two giant breed rescue dogs, one of which is a special needs dog. His previous owners were told to put him down because ‘no one would take a 150 pound dog with known health problems.’ Thankfully, they sought out a rescue that would take him without putting him down. A week later, I fell in love with him and took him home, huge medical costs and all. He almost missed out on a very loving and fulfilling life, but was thankfully given a chance.”

Jelena continues, “I love Best Friends Animal Society’s No More Homeless Pets campaign where they spray and neuter animals, as well as set up foster and adoption programs around the country. Their sanctuaries take in dogs, cats and other animals in need of special care, so one day they will be able to be adopted. They’re giving animals the chance to lead happy, healthy, and loving lives.”

“Girlfriends Films is by far my favorite company to work for!” adds Jelena. “I’ve been shooting for them only a little over a year now, but they’ve proved themselves to be at the top of their game in many aspects. One of them is their commitment to helping others. They are in no way obligated to make monthly donations to charities, yet they do so because they choose to use their position to help. And I think it’s very admirable they have chosen to ask their actresses to play a part in their charitable cause. I’m very happy to be a part of such a great company!”

Girlfriends Films calls on its strong community of fans and followers to join Jelena in the prevention of homeless pets. Donations of all sizes may be made directly to Best Friends Animal Society at
