Kansas City, Mo. — Hall of Famer George Brett, known for his
mean bat during a 21-year career with the Kansas City Royals, is now a big hit
with animal lovers across North America. That's because Brett—one of only four
players in Major League Baseball history to accumulate 3,000 hits, 300 home
runs, and a career .300 batting average—has just shot two brand-new ads for
PETA about the importance of not locking dogs inside cars during hot or even
just warm weather.
In the ad
shot for TV and radio, Brett appears with his dog Charlie and says,
"[P]lease do not leave your dog in the car. It takes only minutes for a
dog to become dehydrated, sustain irreparable brain damage, and die of
heatstroke …. Cover your bases. If you know that you'll be out and about, leave
your dog at home indoors, where it's safe." Brett also appears with his
canine pal in a print ad (available here)
that reads, "If It's Too Hot for You, Then It's Too Hot for Spot."
In an exclusive
PETA interview taped in Kansas City, Brett addressed the importance of
having dogs microchipped in order to keep them safe and emphasized the
importance of treating them like members of the family. "Dogs need someone
to be around and someone to talk to …. [W]e have sitters come over when we
travel sometimes, and … if the kids are home … it's mandatory that they walk
the dogs every day—get them some exercise."
Brett joins a growing list of athletes—including Glenn Dorsey, Chase
Utley, Tony Gonzalez, Chad Ochocinco, Amar'e Stoudemire,
Lance Briggs, Aaron Curry, and Ron Artest—who have teamed
up with PETA to help animals.

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.
