You Me At Six Tells Fans ‘Breeders Kill Shelter Dogs’ Chances’

Posted by 5 years ago | Permalink | Comments (4)

With the release of their new album Sinners Never Sleep we wanted to show you the ad that You Me At Six starred in for peta2, a great pro-adoption ad with the band. You can check out an interview with the band members here.

The ad highlights the thousands of unwanted dogs – and cats – who end up in shelters and refuges every year and how many of them must be euthanised because there simply aren’t enough good homes for them and because life in a small cage is no life at all. The band wants to let their fans know that buying an animal from a pet store or breeder robs a homeless animal of his or her chance at adoption and encourages sellers to breed even more pedigree animals. Please take a moment to admire the stunningly handsome pup who is the star of the ad – that’s my boy, Zack, whom I adopted from a shelter in Edinburgh seven years ago!

    As someone who has just taken in a rescue dog You cannot blame people for wanting to buy a puppy from a breeder or pet shop. My new dog has serious issues that will take a lot of time and money to sort out. If I’m honest I wish I had got a puppy and given it a home instead as this dog really is a pain but unfortunaty it is not in my nature to do that. If all dogs were perfect and needed no work they wouldn’t be in rescue centres. Some people are just bad owners and will keep getting puppies until they find the right one.

    Musicians and Bands who help and support the humane treatment of animals are all heroes.

    Don’t forget, it’s not just cats and dogs you can adopt – I adopted two dwarf hamsters! There are so many animal rescue shelters; all you have to do is google.
