Twilight star Kellan Lutz is the poster boy for a new campaign from PETA encouraging people to adopt from shelters instead of breeders.

“If anything, I think mutts stay the healthiest,” he tells PETA. “There are surprisingly so many animals in these shelters. 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.”

Lutz appears in the ad (fully clothed we might add), with his adopted dog Kola. “You can feel the pain that they go through,” he said about dogs in shelters. He added about Kola, “She wanted a home, and I think that she could tell that I was the right owner for her. And from that day on, I just loved her.”

“For the fans of ‘Twilight’ who are out there who have so much love, give that love for these books and these characters to a pet if you don’t have one,” Kellan said. “Twilighters, if you can, do it. Adopt a pet.”

    So many pure bred dogs I know have problems. I rescued a King Charles Cavalier and, now at seven, she is deaf and very sick with an inherited heart disease. My friends Cavalier has a horrible neurological illness (yes inherited again) that affects the nerves and apparently becomes extremely painful. As much as my dog and I adore each other, give me a moggie any time.
