BooBoo Stewart took some time from the wolfpack in Twilight to ask that you always adopt members of your own pack.

Stewart and his rescued dog Pookie posed for PETA in an ad for their ‘Adopt, Don’t Buy’ campaign. In his video, while sporting PETA’s ‘Cut Class Not Frogs’ t-shirt, he says “If you guys are interested in getting any kind of animal, definitely go and adopt…A lot of people don’t even think about it, you just walk by a store and you see all these cute little puppies…not thinking about all the animals that are in tiny little cages by themselves or shoved in with a whole bunch of dogs in one cage.” According to PETA, “Every year in the U.S., more than 7 million lost, abandoned, or unwanted dogs and cats enter animal shelters and more than half of them must be euthanized because there are not enough homes for them. Every dog or cat purchased from a pet store or a breeder takes away a home from an adoptable animal—meaning that one more animal in a shelter will die.”

Stewart also mentioned that he recently watched a PETA video on the Canadian seal hunt with Twilight co-star Kellan Lutz. He said, “I don’t understand how people can just be so careless and kill another life. They have feelings – my dog loves me, I know that.” Lutz has posed for PETA’s ‘Adopt, Don’t Buy’ campaign as well, along with his dog Kola.
