Here’s an issue i feel very strongly about …

good evening! i’ve talked about this issue before – adopting pets rather than purchasing them! there are so many animals (literally on the brink of death) in shelters that need a good and loving home – it’s insane to think people would still go to the shop and buy a (pricey) pet rather than rescue! super cutie kellan lutz (of twilight fame but he was also on the comeback with my darling valerie cherish – sadly canceled before her time) is the latest celebrity (along with his rescue dog kola) to join forces with the folks from PETA for a new campaign – helping to urge everyone to adopt! just a few weeks ago the city of west hollywood passed an ordinance banning the sale of cats and dogs in pet stores – i seriously hope other cities will consider doing the same thing! popbytes over & out for tonight … xoxo



Each year, more than 7 million dogs and cats are left at animal shelters in the U.S.–and nearly half of those must be euthanized because of a lack of good homes. Kellan explains, “It’s our job to take [animals] under our wing and take care of them and give them a place to live.”



Animals sold in pet shops often come from “puppy mills,” where they are housed in cramped, filthy, and unhealthy conditions and lack proper veterinary care. And in light of the current animal overpopulation crisis, it’s clear that there’s no such thing as a responsible breeder. Kellan tells PETA, “Kola is my best friend.” If you’re thinking about bringing an animal into your home, be sure always to adopt and never to buy. SOURCE
