Adopt street animals, urges PETA video featuring Sonakshi Sinha
The Indian chapter of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has produced a new video that urges adoption of cats and dogs by families. In the PETA-India's video, Bollywood star Sonakshi Sinha, features with her canine friend Bambi. Sonakshi, 25, is an animal lover and has been involved in rescuing and looking after animals.

In the video, Sonakshi appeals to adopt animals from shelters, or a cat or dog from the streets. The PETA produced video advocates that the adopted cats and dogs should invariably be spayed or neutered. The video directed by Tarun Mansukhani states that the breeders, pet stores and people should get their pets sterilized and provide them a good life.

According to PETA, across India, stray dogs and cats struggle to survive on the streets. Adopting and sterilizing one female dog can prevent 67,000 births in six years, and sterilizing one female cat can prevent 420,000 births in seven years.

PETA India is a charitable organization with affiliates in the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands and the US. This organization was founded in 2000 and is based in Mumbai, India. The basic principle that governs the working of this organization is that animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on or to be used for entertainment, informs the NGO's website.

PETA is highly involved in educating people about the right treatment towards animals and highly encourages vegetarianism. It focuses primarily in areas where a large number of animals are impacted. They are greatly involved in rescue operations of animals from circus and slaughter houses, adds the website.
