I don’t know if I could love Kellan Lutz more than I love him right now! The star of The Twilight Saga with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) in support of pet adoption.
The endearing poster shows Kellan and the newest member of his family Kola and a special message to all his fans, “Adopt, Don’t Buy.”
Each year, more than 7 million dogs and cats are left at animal shelters in the U.S.—and nearly half of those must be euthanized because of a lack of good homes. Kellan explains, “It’s our job to take [animals] under our wing and take care of them and give them a place to live.”
Animals sold in pet shops often come from “puppy mills,” where they are housed in cramped, filthy, and unhealthy conditions and lack proper veterinary care. And in light of the current animal overpopulation crisis, it’s clear that there’s no such thing as a responsible breeder. Kellan tells PETA, “Kola is my best friend.” If you’re thinking about bringing an animal into your home, be sure always to adopt and never to buy.
Check out this very special message that I truly believe with all my heart.
