“Glee” star Kevin McHale has more in common with his costars than just a rocking voice. Like Lea Michele, Dianna Agron, Jane Lynch and Chris Colfer, McHale loves rescue animals and believes that everyone should adopt instead of buy.
In his new PETA ad, the actor poses with his adopted companion Sophie to get the word out that dog and cat overpopulation is a big problem, but one that can be solved. All we have to do is “root for the underdog” by going to the shelter instead of the pet store.
McHale said about doing the ad, “All my friends and all the crew members of Glee – they’re the biggest advocates of dog adoption, so it was kind of a no-brainer to do it.”
There are two other versions of the ad to see. We love that McHale is standing up for Sophie and the millions of dogs just like her across the country (and world) who are in desperate need of a home. Check out your local shelter or petfinder.com to see if your new best friend is waiting for you.
With so much love on the set of “Glee” for rescue pups, we wonder if animal rescue will ever be featured in an episode of the popular show. We’ll keep our fingers crossed.
