Amy Jackson Wants You to Adopt

Posted on by PETA

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.
