'Adopt, Don’t Buy' With I See Stars
They’re not just pioneers of EHM (y’know, electro-hardcore music)—the dudes of I See Stars are also huge animal advocates!
We got the entire band—Devin, Jeff, Brent, Andrew, Jimmy, and Zach—to rally their adopted dogs—Abby (who lives with Andrew), Logan (resides with Devin), Cooper (hangs with Jeff), and Juno (Zach’s main mutt)—to star in this adorable ad!
“Adopting [companion animals] has always been my way. We are all huge animal lovers and are honored to help spread the word about this cause,” vocalist Devin Oliver tells us.
“It’s absolutely mind-blowing statistics in terms of the number of animals that are in need of a loving home, and hopefully we can help in some way to lower those numbers.”
It’s rad knowing that the band understands the importance of animal adoption. Approximately 6 to 8 million animals (including dogs!) enter shelters each year, and buying a dog or cat from a breeder or pet store means that one less animal in a shelter gets a chance at finding a loving home.
Adopting pets has always been my way. I guess it’s kind of my soft side. Please adopt, don’t buy.
“So what can I do?” you ask. It’s so simple! Check out your local animal shelters or rescue groups. They’re full of lovable furry friends who can’t wait for a new home.
Also, do your homework: Animal companions require a bit of work (although so fun and rewarding!), and they need us to care for them. Make sure that you have the ability to feed, walk, and care for them on a daily basis.
