Actress Raveena Tandon, who has teamed up with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) for its dog adoption campaign "Puppy Love: Adopt, Don't Buy", urges people to adopt homeless dogs from the streets and shelters.
The 38-year-old has already set an example by adopting five stray dogs. In fact, she posed for PETA's ad campain with two of them.
"When you go for shopping (to buy dogs or puppies), you are promoting the breeders whose puppies are not of good quality. Sometimes you also go for the foreign breeds that are not suited for our country's weather and climate," Raveena, known for her work in films like "Patthar Ke Phool" and "Mohra", told reporters here Thursday at the launch of the campaign.
"So, for me, the best dogs, the best accustomed to this (Indian) weather and climate, to be the best guardian of your house or your area are these (stray dogs) dogs. So, look after them, but do it the right way," she added.
