Audrina Patridge and Speedy Gonzalez for PETA
Audrina Patridge spends her time onscreen juggling work, relationships, and the drama of life in The Hills, but off-screen, she spends her time being an "Angel for Animals." The girl that Maxim magazine dubbed "Queen of The Hills" has joined with PETA to pose in an ad (with rescued pooch Speedy Gonzalez) that says, "Be an Angel for Animals."
During the photo shoot, Audrina told us, "I wanted to get involved with PETA because I've always been passionate about animals, and I think this is a great way to make people and all my fans aware of all the animals that need a home. And a lot of people go to pet stores and breeders to buy their animals, but you should adopt, so go to an animal shelter and rescue a dog."
Audrina knows that choosing to adopt from an animal shelter is the only way to ensure that a loving animal will not be killed because there simply aren't enough good homes. While millions of animals must be killed for want of a good home, greedy breeders churn out millions of animals each year for pet stores to sell. You can help stop the cycle by joining Audrina and promoting animal birth control: always spaying and neutering and never buying from a pet store or a breeder. Over the years, Audrina has proved to be a great friend to animals.
Audrina and PETA want you to know that if you're thinking about adding a dog or cat to your family, you should be sure to adopt from your local animal shelter-and never buy from a pet store or breeder.
Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
