Didn't you just go, "Awww …" when you saw
Dia Mirza's and Zayed Khan's characters rescue a pup from the street and bring
him home in the recent flick Love
We at PETA found this not only cute but also
award-worthy. That's because this scene that will be viewed by millions will help
fans realise that they, too, can save lives by choosing to adopt one of the
millions of homeless dogs or cats who languish on the streets or in animal shelters
instead of buying them from a pet shop or breeder.
"We give Love
Breakups Zindagi 'two paws up' for
reminding filmgoers that India's streets are full of loving animals in need of
a good home", says PETA India Chief Functionary Poorva Joshipura. "We
encourage everyone who has the time and resources to care for a dog or cat to
adopt a homeless animal in need – you'll have a loving companion for the rest
of his or her life."
Congratulations to Born Free Entertainment for receiving
PETA's Hero to Animals Award for promoting compassion to animals in Love Breakups Zindagi!
The film has done its part, and now it is your turn to
help. Please encourage everyone you know who is looking to welcome a dog or cat
into their home to take in a homeless animal from the streets or adopt one from
an animal shelter.
We all know that former Miss Earth and Bollywood leading lady Dia Mirza has always promoted many social causes. Now she can add "animal ally" to her résumé. This gorgeous star and animal lover is the new brand ambassador of Body Shop, a company that doesn't test on animals.
Rats, mice, guinea pigs, rabbits and other animals used in cruel animal tests are forced to swallow or inhale massive quantities of a test substance or endure the pain of having caustic chemicals applied to their sensitive eyes and skin – even though the results of animal tests are often unreliable or not applicable to humans.
Kudos to Dia for supporting cruelty-free beauty! Please join her by taking the pledge never to buy or use any product that is tested on animals
