If you watch TNT’s new miniseries, “Mob City,” then you know him as Joe Teague. If you are a fan of “The Walking Dead,” you’ll recognize him as Shane Walsh. Off the small screen, though, actor Jon Bernthal has teamed up with The Humane Society of the United States in a new ad campaign highlighting animal cruelty laws.

Flanked by his own rescued pit bulls, Boss and Venice, Bernthal stands tall in the new HSUS ad behind the written reminder, “Animal Cruelty is a Crime.”

“There is no excuse for animal cruelty,” says Bernthal. “Animals are among the most vulnerable beings on this planet. That’s why I am urging everyone to speak up if they see or suspect cruelty; don’t expect that someone else will.”

“Countless dogs, cats and other animals fall victim to unnecessary cruelty and neglect. Every state has laws prohibiting animal cruelty, and 49 of them contain felony provisions. However, a law is only as good as its enforcement, and that’s why animals rely on us to protect them,” cautions the HSUS. Check out the ad, featuring photography from Art Streiber, here.
