‘The Artist’ Star Uggie for PETA India

Posted on by PETA

Scene-stealing canine star Uggie won hearts and awards for his performance in The Artist. Now the world’s favourite pup is the star of a PETA India campaign encouraging everyone  always to adopt, never buy. It’s a subject close to Uggie’s heart because the energetic dog was passed off by three families before he found his forever home – and he knows that every animal deserves the same happy ending. 

Twenty-five million homeless dogs are struggling to survive on India’s streets. They go hungry, are hit by vehicles or are abused by cruel people. The luckier ones are in animal shelters waiting for a family to call their own. 

When you are ready to welcome a new animal into the family, please don’t support pet stores or breeders. Always adopt – never buy.
