Melissa Etheridge Adds to Her Family

Written by PETA | October 8, 2010

Knowing that millions of cats and dogs of all ages, sizes, and lineages are currently homeless, Oscar- and Grammy Award–winning songwriter and musician Melissa Etheridge knew that she’d adopt—not purchase—and she found two amazing pooches, Cooper and Scout. These lucky pups now live with Melissa and her four children—and love their long walks with Melissa and her son. She’s a nice person, indeed.

Melissa tells Peoplepets.com that a bumper sticker reading, “Rescue Is the New Breed,” caught her eye recently—and she applauds that sentiment. This pro-rescue slogan honors my household’s resident lap-lover, Tom. What’s your favorite slogan that advocates animal adoptions over purchases?

    Funny.. I just read this article today how Melissa left her ex-partner so broke, she can’t afford to feed her children.

    The R.O.A.R. Squad- Rescue Owners Are Rockin! Okay, I’m biased because I started it :)

    The whole idea is to make adopting a rescue THE coolest thing around!

    We are 6 months into the project, 6 months left to reach our goal of finding at least one rescue owner in every state in US & province/territory in Canada.
