Senses Fail's Buddy Nielsen Talks Animal Adoption
Regardless of your animal rights background or whether you’re vegan or not, one issue that everyone can get behind is the companion-animal overpopulation crisis. Every year, 6 to 8 million cats and dogs are turned over to animal shelters, and half of them are euthanized. Buying animals from pet stores or breeders directly contributes to the deaths of animals in shelters who are in need of homes and allows puppy mills to keep churning out new litters.
We recently caught up with Buddy Nielsen, the vocalist for scene veterans Senses Fail, to meet his (insanely cute) adopted dog, Leslie, and to learn why he chose to adopt, not buy.
