Good news, patriots! Pamela Anderson is a bona fide U.S. citizen.

The Canadian-born performer confirms on her Web site that she has officially been awarded citizenship.

Her first act as a newly minted American? The former Baywatch babe, 40 – whose brief marriage to Rick Salomon was recently annulled – headed to Washington to lobby against animal testing on behalf of her pet charity, PETA.

"Being a citizen excites me not just because I can vote, but because I can crack the whip on Capitol Hill to defend animals," wrote the long-time animal rights activist.
