Jada Pinkett Smith Rescues Dog From Beijing Streets

Written by PETA | July 2, 2010

When it comes to animals, Jada Pinkett Smith has a heart as big as her incandescent smile. We recently learned that the HawthoRNe star came to the rescue of a hungry puppy who was fending for himself on the streets of Beijing during the shooting of the hit film The Karate Kid—produced by Jada and her husband, Will Smith, and starring their son, Jaden (who also recorded a song for the soundtrack with Justin Bieber and Jackie Chan.

The lucky dog, nicknamed “Beijing Black,” has now made himself at home with the Smith brood, along with a number of other animals. After recognizing how unhappy snakes are in captivity, Jada vowed not to take home any more caged animals. Now, she says, “I like to rescue dogs.”

    never heard of her but if she is famous and can get press attention then I am sure PETA are already working on getting her involved if not go do it! Cheers from Ireland.

    Hopefully we as a people can join together and find a solution for animal abuse and homelessness. Thank you so much for drawing everyone’s attention to the problem. How we treat the weak and helpless in a society shows the condition of society’s condition. Love is action not just feelings. Thank you Jada Pinkett Smith
