Yvonne Strahovski: Adopt, Don't Buy!

Yvonne Strahovski: Adopt, Don't Buy!

Yvonne Strahovski shows off a pair of angel wings – and her beloved furry friends – in a new Peta campaign.

The 28-year-old Chuck actress posed with her rescued dogs, Chazzie and Wilbur, in the new ad.

6 to 8 million abandoned animals enter shelters nationwide each year, and about half of them are euthanized.

“I think it’s really important that people become aware of the amount, the mass of animals that are sitting in shelters as opposed to people going out and just buying puppies that are being bred,” Yvonne said.

So Yvonne…before you decide to give birth kids..there are many children who are abandoned and abused that you can adopt.

She’s a moron!

Nice FEATHERED wings ya got there Yvonne…or are these the free-range donated feathers? Love ya on Chuck but kinda hypocritical….

Go and otheres wear the clothes

Yvonne needs to look into how many adoptable animals PETA actually kills before she represents them. Like she says, there’s so much information available, it would have been easy for her to check into it before she made this ad.

I get it Yvonne loves dog’s but for heaven sakes of all the bulls@$% PETA. This is hypocritical really i mean PETA kills dog’s and cat’s daily from what ive seen and read. PETA sucks

anonymous @ 12/20/2010 at 3:46 pm

I can’t believe the hateful comments even when she’s talking for a good cause.
she’s gorgeous and I really like her for being an animal lover!

Butter_Fly @ 12/20/2010 at 4:00 pm

I’m just shocked that someone in a PETA ad is wearing clothes. Still hate this group with a passion! Sorry.

@Not again…:

You also should know that most of these informations that you’ve seen and read mostly come from PR people from KFC, McDonalds and other companies that hate PETA for obvious reasons.

My attitude towards Peta is rather neutral, i’m not trying to defend it, but you people are so easy to manipulate … you read, you fall for it, you spread the word
and there are always two sides to every story…

oh please @ 12/20/2010 at 4:02 pm


They are not hateful they simply see this for what it is animals over humans. Not to mention the dogs she wants you to adopt most will have issues most dogs from breeders won’t. Emotional issues such as abuse will be a issue its a lot more complicated then just adopting a dog. The dogs mentality will not be the same

@ehhhh: I have actually done a lot of reading on this issue actually. PETA kill’s animals its odd that so much of the hollywood crowd go along with this radical group. I think actor’s who get involved with PETA are just plain stupid and hypocritical.

anonymous @ 12/20/2010 at 4:13 pm

@oh please:
I disagree, I’ve rescued many, many animals, and they usually are the most grateful animals ever

@oh please:

How egoist are you?!

yes animals from shelters have issues….issues like loneliness and sadness…they have been abandoned by their owners, by their family…
But the fact that they’ve been through a lot, make them love their new owner even more…no dog from a breeder will love you like an adopted dog.
and abused dogs can be sad and they need your love even more or they can also be aggressive ….the aggressive ones are being putt down.

@ oh please
*how selfish are you?*
