Justin Bieber had an amazing year filled with chart-topping singles, major television
appearances, a Vanity Fair cover, an
upcoming documentary about his life called Never
Say Never, and numerous awards, including an American Music Award for
Artist of the Year. Now, this Grammy-nominated breakthrough artist is taking
time out of his busy schedule to star in his second heartwarming PSA (public service announcement) for PETA encouraging people to adopt
animals from shelters instead of buying them from breeders or pet stores.
Justin sings the praises of our furry
friends in his PSA that reads, "Animals Can Make U Smile. Adopt From Your
Local Shelter." Every year, 6 to 8 million abandoned or stray dogs and
cats enter animal shelters—and half of them must be euthanized because of a
lack of good homes. Justin wants his fans to know that buying a dog or a cat
from a pet store or a breeder
takes a home away from a deserving animal waiting in a shelter for a loving
addition to killing a shelter dog's chance at a new life, buying a dog supports
cruel breeding operations in which dogs are raised in cramped, crude, and
filthy conditions. The only solution to the dog and
cat overpopulation crisis is spaying and neutering to prevent pregnancies and adopting from animal shelters.
So if you're thinking about bringing a cat or a dog into your home, take a cue
from Justin and give an animal at a shelter a new leash on life!
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.
