Los Angeles --Twilight saga actor Kellan Lutz--known to many fans as the studly vampire Emmett Cullen--reveals his softer side in a new ad for PETA Kids, the children's division of PETA. Part of PETA Kids' "Adopt, Don't Buy" campaign, the ad shows Lutz hugging his rescued mixed-breed dog Kola and reads, "Buying Animals Is Killing Animals. Save a Homeless Dog or Cat--Always Adopt and Never Buy." The ad, which can be seen here, was shot by top celebrity photographer Collin Stark.
"I love mutts!" gushed Lutz in an exclusive interview with PETA Kids. "If anything, I think mutts stay the healthiest." Lutz also addressed the animal-overpopulation crisis. "There are surprisingly so many animals, so many animals in these animal shelters," he said. "It's sad, and knowing that they get euthanized... and there's a lot you can do... spay or neuter your pets so that doesn't happen."
Almost 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. Buying an animal from a pet store or breeder robs a homeless animal of a chance at adoption and encourages sellers to acquire more purebred animals. Lutz, a big fan of mutts, encourages "Twilighters" to adopt.
Lutz is the latest celebrity to join PETA Kids in speaking up for animals. Visitors to PETAKids.com can play games, enter contests, read exclusive interviews with all their favorite bands and celebrities, and learn about tons of fun ways to help animals.
