Atlanta-based Brick Squad hip-hop
artist Waka Flocka Flame never stops when it comes to raising awareness about
animal protection. In advance of his sophomore album Triple F Life:
Friends, Fans & Family, Waka earns a "Round of Applause"
from animals everywhere for his second PETA ad, which is aimed at stopping
chaining, fighting, and other abuse of dogs. Waka's adorable co-star in the ad
is Daphna, a rescued dog from the Atlanta Humane Society who is named
after PETA's vice president of cruelty investigations.
Watch this exclusive
behind-the-scenes video from Waka Flocka Flame's photo shoot:
Known for his bass-heavy tracks
and rebellious rhymes, Waka never holds back—especially when it comes to
speaking out against animal abuse. In a growing number of communities, chaining
a dog carries hefty penalties. It is one of the cruelest things you can do to
an animal who wants nothing more than to show you love and loyalty. Dogfighting, which reduces adoring animals to bloodied, mangled corpses, is a felony offense throughout the country. Waka
warns cowards to "pick on somebody your own size"
and encourages everyone to treat companion animals with kindness.
If you witness or suspect
abuse toward an animal, take a tip from Waka and speak up! To
ensure cases of cruelty are always heard by
those who will take action, help PETA's Investigations & Rescue Fund.
See Waka's other PETA ads as well
as photos of dogs who have already been helped by PETA. Your donation will enable
PETA to follow Waka's advice and help more desperate dogs like these.
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.
