Los Angeles – Dancing With the Stars alum Joanna Krupa never misses a step when it comes to helping animals, and that’s why she led a PETA protest today outside Barkworks, a Los Angeles pet store that irresponsibly sells puppies even though hundreds of puppies and dogs remain homeless in city animal shelters. At the protest, Krupa also unveiled her racy new ad campaign for PETA. Titled “Be an Angel for Animals,” the campaign features an image of Krupa posing inside a cathedral wearing a pair of angel wings and covered only by a well-placed cross. The campaign supports PETA’s efforts to promote the adoption of homeless animals.

“You know, we’re trying to spread the word that breeding isn’t the way to go,” says Krupa in an exclusive PETA US interview. “Somebody needs to put their foot down and stop this breeding and these puppy mills. – [T]hey’re in these little tiny cages, and all they’re doing is breeding their whole life. It makes me so angry that our government doesn’t do anything about it. So I am!”

PETA hopes to let people who are thinking about bringing an animal into their home know that every time an animal is bought from a breeder or a pet store, a homeless animal in an animal shelter or roaming the streets loses a chance at finding a good home. Each year, millions of unwanted dogs and cats are turned over to animal shelters.
