Justin Bieber Helps PETA to Encourage Adopting Animals from Shelters

Justin Bieber’s year has been filled with chart-topping singles, major television appearances, an upcoming documentary about his life called Never Say Never, and numerous awards, including an American Music Award for Artist of the Year.

Now, he  is taking time out of his busy schedule to star in his second heartwarming PSA for PETA, encouraging people to adopt animals from shelters instead of buying them from breeders or pet stores. Justin even adopted his own dog (Sam) from a shelter.

Justin had  this to say about the campaign:

“It’s really important that people adopt. I really encourage going out to an animal shelter or a place where you can get a dog who has been abandoned or doesn’t have a home.”

Here’s what PETA wrote about the new ad:

“Bieber always makes it a point to make sure that his fans know how much he cares about them. Whether he’s surprising them on TV, responding to them on Twitter, or even dedicating a song to them to express how much they mean to him, Bieber keeps his fans at the forefront of his mind. Now, in his second time teaming up with peta, Bieber has an important message that he hopes everyone will take to heart: If you need someone to make you smile, adopt a homeless animal from your local animal shelter!

Every year, 7 to 8 million dogs and cats end up in animal shelters, and half of them must be euthanized simply because there are not enough good homes for them. The next time that you’re looking for a furry friend to be part of your life, don’t support pet stores or breeders—adopt!

If animals (and Justin Bieber) make ‘U Smile,’ help end animal homelessness by always adopting and never purchasing animals from pet stores or breeders and by spaying or neutering your animal companions.”

Its good to see a young star trying to make a difference in the world. Hopefully, Justin will continue to excel at kindness, since he has a lot of fans following his lead.
