After rescuing many animals, including dogs and cats, actor Amy Jackson has teamed up with People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (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 slogan ‘Be an Angel for Animals: Adopt. Don’t Buy!’  Jackson found Alfie when he was just six 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 its chance to find a good home,” says Jackson.

 “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.”

 Amy has just made her debut in Telugu cinema with Yevadu and will soon be seen in Tamil film I opposite Chiyaan Vikram.
