Kellan Lutz: Always Adopt, Never Buy Dogs and Cats!

Kellan Lutz: Always Adopt, Never Buy Dogs and Cats!

Kellan Lutz and his rescued mixed-breed dog Kola lend their star power to PETA‘s “Adopt, Don’t Buy” campaign.

The ad reads, “Buying Animals Is Killing Animals. Save a Homeless Dog or Cat—Always Adopt and Never Buy.”

“I love mutts!” the 24-year-old Twilight actor shared. “If anything, I think mutts stay the healthiest. There are surprisingly so many animals, so many animals in these animal shelters. It’s sad, and knowing that they get euthanized … and there’s a lot you can do … spay or neuter your pets so that doesn’t happen.”

In my place there will be a new law against dogs and their holder. More than 20 kids have been attacked by those damn dogs here already—and all in less than a year.

You’re not gonna make a difference by saving one dog, sorry. You’re just saving that dog.
Kellan should stay blond, btw.

@black – your dumbass comment just shows that your mom should have been neutered, and so should you before you spread your evil on to future generations. May you get hit by a bus. Amen.

# 5

AMAZING! You should not buy your friends!
Pet adoptions is amazing, my cats are all rescued.

@haka, I disagree. It DOES make a difference. Both my dogs were adopted just before they were put to sleep and they are the most loyal dogs. It seems like adopted dogs don’t act as spoiled since they are grateful to have homes.

@black, it’s people like you that makes me love the canine species more than humans.

Adoption’s great but it’s not always the best idea. People who have a use for the dog besides family pet for instance, or people with small children who don’t want an animal whose entire history they cannot be sure of. I’m also not sure that telling people they are murdering an animal if they want a specific breed is the way to bring people over to your point of view.

@haka:

You are making a difference in that animals life.

“Buying animals is killing animals?” What?

My cats over the years have always been adopted, or should I say they adopted us. Kitty was in a no kill shelter for over 6 months before I took him. He had already been neutered. Take a look at some of the older animals at the shelter. You can find some really nice cats and dogs. Also, try donating supplies to the shelter or volunteering. It is greatly appreciated.

Perhaps Kellan should read this

I feel about adopting animals the same I do as adopting children:

No thank you. I don’t want anyone else’s baggage.
They say “stop buying” and adopt so that these dogs won’t die well what about the one’s sitting in a breeder’s home?

@LoveAnnny

just….wow. Your comment just took my breath away with its cold-heartedness and stupidity.

@Robyn:
Many police drug sniffer dogs are rescue dogs and they do an amazing job. Same for seeing eye dogs or cattle dogs etc. Just because they are abandoned doesn’t mean they can’t be trained.

They also do full checks on all the animals before they are put up for adoption. They can tell their age, what shots they’ve had, their breed, and you can spend time with them at the shelter before you decide if you want to take them home.

I have had both adopted pets and breeder pets since I was 5 years old and I fully believe in adoption over buying from breeders. Your giving a good home to an animal that was either abandoned or lost, how is that bad?

@LoveAnnny:
The breeders impregnant dogs specifically to sell the offspring. It’s a business. It’s like if I were to get pregnant just so I could sell my child.

If the breeder can’t sell them, they’ll give them to an adoption center.

But what is going to happen to all the animal that are for sale??? If nobody buys them they will be put to sleep too!!! :(

this post made me feel sad… thank you very much, Jared!!

I don’t dislike dogs but I loathe dog’s owner,BTW.

there are reasons why some of those animals are put in shelters, because alot of them are viscous little buggers. plus PETA are hypocrites they kill a hell of alot of animals. also didnt PETA say people should not own animals as pets and all animals should roam free.

also the same group of people who say people should not use anything tested on animals, even anything medical like insulin i would love to know if any of the PETA supporter who have diabetes use insulin.

@rock_chick_chic
yes, sometimes those dogs are vicious or aggressive – and its tragic that you think that that’s a good reason for them being put in shelters. It’s not their fault that they have become like that – most of the time they have been neglected and/or abused by evil scum that get away with it.

but , what about the dogs in the pet stores? There just going to rot there? no there going to take them back to the person where they got them from a puppy mill then use them to make more puppies. I understand its better to adopt a dog but , its a pain you have to go through a lot of stuff before you can acutally get one. And what if they don’t meet your needs. Truth is in my eyes all dogs need homes. At least if they are at the pound they are getting some love the pet stores there like all over the places majority of the time getting kennel cough or other sickness and not getting love . So adopt buy just make sure you know you are able to take care of them forever! every dog and or cat need a home bottom line

Well If at least one is rescued that seems good to me, glad to see he’s into a good cause

WOW. You really are retarded.

WOW. You people are ALL missing the point. Yes, Buying animals DOES kill animals.
“But what about the dogs in pet stores, are they just going to rot there?”
NO, somebody WILL buy them, and if they don’t, they’ll end up in a shelter or rescue. But this is the point that you ignorant people are all failing to see:
Dogs are just like products. The higher the demand, the more the level of production will increase. Just like when a new, trendy product comes out like the iPhone. All companies only produce a limited amount of their product, however, when the demand is high, the production will increase dramatically.
Let’s say a breeder has 2 females dogs and 2 males dogs that they use for breeding. The more people who show interest in their puppies, and the faster their pups get sold, the MORE dogs they will use for breeding, and more puppies will be born. This breeder will eventually end up with 10 females dogs they use for breeding instead of 2, and they will end up with 10 litters of puppies a year instead of 2.

If fewer people buy dogs, fewer puppies will be bred, and fewer animals will end up in shelters.

I don’t feel comfortable adopting an adult dog because I have 3 small children. We did once and we ended up having to give the dog back because it was very agressive with my children. We will be buying a pug puppy this summer and I do not feel guilty about it at all. My children’s safety is more important to me than a dog.
