Twilight star Kellan Lutz encourages fans to “Adopt Don’t Buy.” Lutz stars in the PETA ad with his rescued pup, Kola, to spread the message that purchasing a dog or cat from a pet store or breeder perpetuates animal homelessness.

Kellan says, “For the fans of Twilight who are out there and have so much love, give that love for these books and these characters to a pet if you don’t have one.”

According to PETA, in the U.S. more than 7 million dogs and cats are left at animal shelters annually. Nearly half of those animals must be euthanized.
