After rescuing many animals, including dogs and cats, Bollywood actor and South Indian film siren Amy Jackson teamed up with PETA India for a brand-new ad campaign that encourages people to share their homes with a homeless cat or dog. In the ad, she appears as an angel holding her rescued cat Alfie next to the words “Be an Angel for Animals: Adopt. Don’t Buy!” The ad was shot by ace photographer Nikki Lyons.
Jackson found Alfie when he was just 6 weeks old, abandoned on the side of a busy road in a box with four other kittens. Three of them didn’t survive, and Jackson and her sister adopted the other two, Alfie and Frankie.
“Every time someone buys a cat or a dog from a breeder or a pet shop, a cat on the streets or in an animal shelter loses his or her chance at finding a good home”, Jackson says. “We can stop the cycle of animal homelessness and save lives by opening our hearts and homes to a loving cat or dog from an animal shelter instead of buying animals from breeders or pet shops.”
Take the pledge to adopt, and never shop, today.
