In honor of "Be An Angel" Day, an international, nondenominational celebration of acts of kindness, we thought we'd share some of our favorite ads starring celebrity angels for animals—including Kimora Lee Simmons, Audrina Patridge, and David Boreanaz—who have earned their wings by spreading heavenly messages about protecting dogs, cats, and other animals.
To be an angel for animals today, consider giving bedding and treats to a lonely chained dog, playing with cats at an animal shelter, driving a needy animal to a spay/neuter appointment, or just giving your best friends some extra TLC.
Find more tips on being an angel for your animal friends in PETA's Caring for Animal Companions Guide.
