Actress Kristin Bauer van Straten, who plays the vampire Pam on HBO’s “True Blood,” is the focus of a new ad promoting the adoption of shelter animals.

“I’ve been living with this guy for five years and we have this connection,” the actress says of her rescue Asher. “I could not face the possibility of not living with him or not having him be my friend.”

Kristin has been a passionate supporter of animals for years – appearing on this site numerous times supporting initiatives and campaigns. Just last July, she announced that she was producing a documentary to educate others about elephant and rhino poaching called “Out of Africa.”

For this new PSA, created for No Kill Los Angeles, a life-saving initiative of Best Friends Animal Society, Bauer says there are plenty of homes available to turn Los Angeles from high-kill to no-kill by 2017.

“I’ve lived in Los Angeles for 19 years. I’ve volunteered at the shelters. I live with four animals that were rescued from shelters. No Kill L.A. is a high goal, but a goal we must strive toward,” Bauer van Straten says. “There are more than enough homes. We can live in a No Kill Los Angeles.”
