T-Pain and Sixx Mann Talk Commitment and Loyalty to Animal Companions

Recently, multi-platinum, Grammy Award–winning artist T-Pain and Sixx Mann, who recently signed onto his label, Nappy Boy Entertainment, sat down with PETA to remind folks that companion animals are family and should be treated as such—and to discuss the consequences of “cheating.”

T-Pain and Sixx Mann jokingly told PETA that going home smelling like another dog is just asking for trouble—as many dog guardians know all too well—and as T-Pain put it, “obviously against dog law.”

But in all seriousness, like us, animals require love and proper care in order to flourish.

“Treat your dog how you’d like to be treated,” T-Pain urged, adding that animals will love us as much as we love them.

“Respect and attention will go a long way with anybody,” Sixx Mann said. The duo explained that people should approach cats and dogs with the same compassion that we would have for our human children.

Animals Are for Life

Who loves us, whether we’re on top of the world or down in the dumps, rolling in the dough or barely scraping by? Our animal companions, of course! They’re our best friends, and we owe it to them to ensure that their lives are as happy and comfortable as they can possibly be.

Unfortunately, animal shelters are full beyond capacity with homeless animals, many of whom were former “pets” who, for one reason or another, didn’t fit into someone’s lifestyle. Remember: With some time, patience, and understanding, it’s never too late to work through whatever issue may be coming between you and your animal companion.

What You Can Do

PETA encourages all compassionate people who have the time and resources to provide an animal with a lifetime of love and care to adopt from local animal shelters, never buy from breeders or pet stores—which only exacerbate the overpopulation crisis—and always spay and neuter.

“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
