Mumbai: Actress Bipasha Basu has donated an autographed `BB Love Yourself` T-shirt and two free fitness DVDs to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India for an auction.

The products will be auctioned at and its proceeds will benefit Animal Rahat, a non-profit group supported by animal rights organisation PETA India.

"Animal Rahat works tirelessly to alleviate or eliminate this suffering, and that`s something I`m proud to get behind," she added.

Animal Rahat was founded in 2003 to give relief to horses, bullocks, donkeys and other animals who are forced to work. It offers services throughout three districts of Maharashtra.

Some of the group`s accomplishments include conducting vaccination camps for foot-and-mouth disease, stopping cruel bullock races, nose ropes, barbed-wire goads, horn-paring equipment and other cruel devices that add misery to working animals` lives.
