A PETA India undercover investigation reveals filth, disease and cruelty in India's fishing industry.
Watch the video that exposes the cruelty and suffering that go into every piece of leather, fur, wool, and exotic skin that you wear, then ask yourself and everyone you know, "Whose skin are you in?"
film star Trisha Krishnan has appeared opposite some very cute co-stars, such
as scorching-hot Khatta Meetha actor Akshay Kumar and the always
adorable Prabhas, who played her romantic interest in Varsham. Although
these guys are undeniably attractive, we think that her newest co-star is the
alluring actor posed alongside a cuddly canine friend for a PETA India ad
encouraging people to take pride in our country by adopting a homeless Indian
community dog. Trisha's ad for PETA was launched as a cover story in Galatta's
June 2011 issue. In reality, Trisha is the proud guardian of a rescued
community dog named Cadbury.
"I encourage everyone to adopt an animal
off the street or from a shelter", Trisha says. "Indian dogs are
bright, brave and beautiful, and they need our love and respect. If every
family were to take in an Indian dog, there would soon be none left to suffer
on the street." The ad was shot by ace photographer G Venket Ram.
knows what she's taking about. There is a severe
dog and cat overpopulation crisis in India. Millions of homeless dogs and
cats are left to languish in animal shelters or on the streets because of a
lack of good homes. Breeders and pet shops that sell animals for profit – and
individuals who let their dogs or cats have "just one litter" –
contribute to this problem. Every time someone buys a puppy or kitten from a
breeder or pet shop, it means one fewer home for a desperate animal in a
shelter or roaming the streets.
community dogs are loving, loyal, resilient, robust and well suited to the
local climate. When you adopt a dog, not only will you save a life, you'll also
make a friend for life. So take Trisha's advice by pledging to adopt!
Pledge to Adopt Animal Companions
I promise to do my part to end the tragic cycle of animal homelessness
by never buying a dog from a breeder or pet shop. Instead, I will save a life
by opting to adopt a homeless dog from the streets or an animal shelter and by
always having my animal companions spayed or neutered.
