Sitting with her canine friend Bambi, Bollywood actor Sonakshi Sinha stars in a brand-new print ad for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India next to the words “Envision a world without homeless dogs and cats. Adopt a dog or cat from an animal shelter, and always get your animal companions sterilised” released just in time for International Homeless Animals Day (August 17). The ad has been shot by leading photographer Russi Modi and her hair and make-up was done by Nileysh Parmaar.
Sinha and PETA India want all prospective animal guardians to avoid greedy breeders and pet shops, which only make the homeless cat and dog crisis worse and to adopt their animals from a shelter or take in a cat or dog from the streets instead. Sinha is a long-time supporter of PETA India, and since her college days, she has been rescuing animals – including her beloved dog Nancy, whom she lived with for 14 rewarding years.
Earlier, Sinha had also starred in a video for PETA that explained how important it is to always to have cats and dogs sterilised.
