Breaking Dawn Star Booboo Stewart Urges
Fans to 'Always Adopt, Never Buy' Dogs and Cats in New PETA Ad

Los Angeles -- Booboo Stewart, known to many of his
fans as Seth Clearwater, a four-legged member of the Twilight saga's
wolf pack, comes to the rescue once again—this time, for homeless animals. In
his brand-new "Adopt, Don't Buy" ad for PETA, Booboo poses alongside
his adopted dog, Pookie, to spread the word that "buying animals is
killing animals" and to urge people always to adopt and never buy.
"If you guys are interested in getting any kind of
animal, definitely go and adopt," said Stewart in an exclusive interview
from the photo shoot. He also spoke out against the Canadian seal slaughter and
stressed the importance of never buying or wearing fur or leather products.
Six to 8 million unwanted dogs and cats enter animal
shelters every year in the U.S., and half of them must be euthanized simply
because there aren't enough good homes. For every animal purchased from a pet
store or a breeder, a homeless animal sitting in a shelter loses his or her
chance at finding a home.
Stewart isn't the only Twilight star to team up with
peta2 to speak up for animals. Kellan Lutz previously starred in a
pro-adoption campaign, and Christian Serratos has spoken out against classroom
dissection and wearing fur.

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.
