Fifth Harmony has the hottest harmonies in pop music and has sold-out shows at nearly every stop of their highly acclaimed Reflection Tour—and now, Camila, Lauren, Ally, Dinah, and Normani are starring in the most angelic public service announcement ever! Because of the girls’ fierce love for animals, they’ve joined our “Be an Angel for Animals” campaign.
Pledge to be an angel for animals, and get free stickers!
Now that was a fun photo shoot! Among all the glitz, glamour, guitars, photographers, videographers, and snacks, we got a lot of important work done. But it doesn’t take an entire team to become an “angel” for animals. Like Fifth Harmony says, there are hundreds of ways to get your halo.
Here are some easy ways that you can help animals:
- Always adopt—never shop! Six to 8 million homeless animals enter U.S. shelters every year, and over half of them are euthanized because there aren’t enough loving homes. When you adopt, you save a life that would otherwise be lost if you purchased a dog or cat from a pet store or breeder.
- Never leave cats or dogs unattended outdoors. Your animals are part of your family, and they should be treated that way. Don’t leave them alone outdoors, where they could be hit by a car, be attacked by another animal, or get lost or trapped.
- Never go to circuses that use animals. Because circuses are constantly traveling, animals’ access to basic necessities such as food, water, and veterinary care is often inadequate. Animals used by the circus, like elephants, lions, tigers, and bears, definitely don’t enjoy spending day after day chained inside dark, cramped, filthy boxcars or being confined to tiny cages inside trailers when they’re not being forced to perform dumb tricks for humans.
- Keep cruelty out of your closet—don’t buy clothing made with fur or fur trim. Although the majority of animals slaughtered for their fur come from notoriously cruel fur factory farms, trappers around the world also kill millions of raccoons, coyotes, wolves, bobcats, opossums, nutria, beavers, otters, and other fur-bearing animals every year for the clothing industry. Compassion is in fashion—discourage the fur industry by NEVER wearing any fur.
