Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha, who features with her canine friend Bambi in a new video for PETA India, urges fans to adopt cats and dogs.

Sonakshi and People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India want all prospective animal guardians to adopt their animals from a shelter or take in a cat or dog from the streets. The video, directed by Tarun Mansukhani, goes on to say how important it is always to have cats and dogs spayed or neutered.

"Breeders, pet stores and people who don't sterilise their animals are responsible for all the animals who end up homeless. Every time someone buys a dog or cat from a breeder or pet store, a homeless animal roaming the streets or waiting in an animal shelter loses a chance at a home and a good life," said Sonakshi, who has done films like "Dabangg" and "Rowdy Rathore".

Since her college days, Sonakshi, 25, has been involved in rescuing animals - including her beloved dog Nancy, whom she lived with for 14 years.

Across India, stray dogs and cats struggle to survive on the streets. Sterilising one female dog can prevent 67,000 births in six years, and sterilising one female cat can prevent 420,000 births in seven years, said a PETA statement.

    India should round up all the feral stray dogs and cats and sell/export them to dog/cat eating countries!

    The money made can be used to help feed and educate the children who are poverty-stricken...

    the nation needs to first learn to take care of the millions of children who are poverty-stricken.. roaming the streets..lacking education in India.. ppl wont respect animals until they learn to respect human life.
