TWILIGHT‘SKELLAN LUTZ TAKES A ‘BITE’ OUT OF DOG AND CAT HOMELESSNESS IN NEW PETA2 AD
HunkyNew MoonIdol Urges Fans to ‘Always Adopt, Never Buy’ Dogs and Cats
Los Angeles — GorgeousTwilightsaga actorKellan Lutz—known to many fans as the studly vampire Emmett Cullen—reveals his softer side in a new ad for peta2, the world’s largest youth animal rights organization. Part of peta2′s “Adopt, Don’t Buy” campaign, the ad shows Lutz hugging his rescued mixed-breed dog Kola and reads, “Buying Animals Is Killing Animals. Save a Homeless Dog or Cat—Always Adopt and Never Buy.” The ad, which can be seenhere, was shot by top celebrity photographer Collin Stark.
“I love mutts!” gushed Lutz in anexclusive interview with peta2. “If anything, I think mutts stay the healthiest.” Lutz also addressed the animal-overpopulation crisis. “There are surprisingly so many animals, so many animals in these animal shelters,” he said. “It’s sad, and knowing that they get euthanized … and there’s a lot you can do … spay or neuter your pets so that doesn’t happen.”
Almost 8 million unwanted dogs and cats enter animal shelters every year in the U.S., and half of them must be euthanized simply because there aren’t enough good homes. Buying an animal from a pet store or breeder robs a homeless animal of a chance at adoption and encourages sellers to acquire more purebred animals. Lutz, a big fan of mutts, encourages “Twilighters” to adopt.
