superstar Kate del
Castillo, named one of the “25 most influential women” by People en Español, is just as fierce
off-screen protecting animals as she is on-screen in her Telemundo hit La Reina del Sur and in the upcoming
thriller No Good Deed. Yesterday, she
urged all guardians to be their animals' biggest defender when she unveiled her
new PETA ad, which reads, in Spanish, "Fiercely Protect Your Animals."
As Spanish and English-speaking media swarmed
around, the upbeat crowd got their own miniature versions of Kate's ad to take
home, complete with dog-care tips on the back, including advice to spay and neuter and never leave animals to fend
And since May 10 is Mother's Day in
Mexico, as well as the adoptiversary of Kate's rescued dog, Lola, it was the perfect day for Kate and Lola to
celebrate their relationship by fostering other mother-dogter bonds.
