So it is nice to see that one such star – Miley Cyrus, puts her money where her mouth is (so to speak). Miley has five dogs all of whom she has rescued from a dog shelter.
‘This latest initiative is designed to encourage young people and Cyrus fans of all ages who may be tempted to buy designer breed puppies from expensive breeders, to consider adopting homeless dogs from local rescue centers. After Cyrus received a great deal of admiration upon adopting her fifth homeless pet in May of this year; the publication decided to use the fascination with Cyrus’s adoptions to show readers and fans of the actress the benefits of dog adoption.’
They say that trends started by celebrities catch on. I hope this one does because it is heartbreaking to see many healthy dogs miss out on a chance of a new home in favour of brand new puppies from pet shops.
Way to go Miley!
