When you rescue your pet, there's an undeniable bond and their extraordinary gift of gratitude is one of unconditional love. Far too many beautiful and loving animals are dying in shelters, simply because they don't have homes.
Los Angeles (PRWEB) December 08, 2014
Lisa Edelstein urges Americans to get the “extraordinary gift of gratitude” that comes from adopting a rescued pet as she joins national animal welfare organization Best Friends Animal Society’s campaign to end the killing of dogs and cats in our nation’s shelters.
Edelstein is perhaps best known for captivating audiences in the role of Dr. Lisa Cuddy who went toe to toe with the cantankerous Dr. House (Hugh Laurie) on the popular Fox series, ‘House M.D.’ Her new series ‘Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce’ made its debut on Bravo on Dec. 2. From roles on series like “The Good Wife” and “Castle” and in movies such as “Keeping the Faith,” Edelstein is a perennial fan favorite.
Edelstein joins Danny Trejo, Carrie Ann Inaba, Denise Richards, Nils Lofgren, Josef Newgarden, Amanda Seyfried, Cecily Strong, Maggie Q, Elisabeth Rohm, Courtney Thorne-Smith and other luminaries participating in Best Friends’ photo campaign featuring celebrities posed with their personal rescued dogs and/or cats in support of the Save Them All call to action.
“All of my pets are rescues,” Edelstein said. “When you rescue your pet, there's an undeniable bond and their extraordinary gift of gratitude is one of unconditional love. Far too many beautiful and loving animals are dying in shelters, simply because they don't have homes. I encourage anyone thinking of buying a pet to instead please visit their local animal shelter or rescue organization. When you adopt, you're doing your part to Save Them All.”
According to national statistics, each day more than 9,000 dogs and cats die in the nation’s shelters. Best Friends has brought increased awareness to how people can get involved in the solution by adopting, and spaying/neutering their pets, donating, volunteering and sharing this message with their friends.
