Paris Hilton recently bought a Chihuahua puppy from a breeder before publicizing her problematic purchase on social media. The star has apparently been living under a rock if she thinks that buying animals is a compassionate thing to do—a visit to an animal shelter would have shown her just how many Chihuahuas need homes—and five minutes on Petfinder would turn up thousands more, including puppies.
PETA knows that retail therapy is what Paris Hilton loves best, but we’re asking her to keep the shopping to baubles and bags and give an animal a chance to be “sliving” by adopting.
Next week, we’ll be running head-turning ads in Los Angeles, blasting Hilton’s speciesist splurge.
Here’s a sneak peek:
Don’t Make the Same Mistake as Paris Hilton: Pledge Never to Buy Animals
When you buy an animal from a pet store or a breeder, you’re responsible for a new member of the family. You’re also responsible for the death of an animal in a shelter who needed a home.
You can help prevent this—pledge not to buy animals!
Homelessness is not just a human problem. If you want to bring an animal into your life, always adopt from a shelter.
