Imran Khan Urges Fans to Adopt 22 May 2011 | 1338 Views | admin
Imran Khan's life changed dramatically after his break-out role in Jaane Tu ... Ya Jaane Na launched him into stardom and into the hearts of countless adoring fans across the country. But fame isn't the only thing that has changed Imran's life. Tony changed his life too.
Imran's late canine companion Tony had been dumped on the streets by his previous owner – who hadn't even bothered to take the dog's leash off – and was languishing there when Imran rescued him. Imran soon decided to adopt Tony, who, like Imran's character in Jaane Tu ... Ya Jaane Na, was lovably good-natured and very well-mannered. Now, in honour of his beloved Tony, Imran has teamed up with PETA to encourage his legions of fans to save a life by opening their hearts and homes to a dog from the streets or from an animal shelter.
Right now, about 25 million dogs are struggling to survive on India's streets. Many of them are hungry or are suffering from broken bones, infected wounds or painful diseases, or they will be hit by vehicles or abused by cruel people. Many others are languishing in animal shelters. Homeless dogs on the street and those who are housed in animal shelters desperately need good homes. Buying an animal from a breeder or a pet store deprives a dog like Tony of a loving home and a chance at a good life.
Like Imran, we can save a life and make a new best friend by adopting a grateful dog or cat from the streets or a shelter. Please, sign our pledge always to adopt animals instead of buying them!
