Since the recent grand finale of WB’s hit show Angel, star David Boreanaz has been busy helping animals. He appears in a new ad campaign for PETA, along with his dogs, Fritz and Bertha Blue, and the tagline “Be your dogs’ angel. Play with them … take them for nice long walks … don’t ever chain them.”

David Boreanaz "Be Your Dogs' Angel" Print AdEvery day, millions of dogs are left chained and unattended in backyards across the U.S., shivering in the cold or panting from the heat, often with no more than a shoddy, makeshift shelter to protect them from the elements.

Living day after day in isolation causes loneliness and distress for these social, pack-oriented animals.

You can improve the lives of dogs suffering from cruelty and neglect by joining peta2 and helping animals in your community.

Remember, dogs are depending on people like you and David Boreanaz to speak up and give them a chance for a better life.
