When peta2 learned that Rocsi Diaz is a lifelong animal lover and the proud guardian of her own adorable rescued dogs, we knew what we had to do—ask her to star in her own peta2 ad! Lucky for us, she was happy to oblige. So we sent Miss Rocsi and her Pomeranian Chi Chi to the beach for an afternoon of summertime fun in the sun. Check out Rocsi Diaz in her adorable new peta2 ad, and watch the video to see exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from her photo shoot!

 

As the cohost of BET’s wildly popular music show, 106 & ParkRocsi Diaz spends her days in the company of some of the biggest names in music and entertainment. Everyone from Snoop Dogg to Chris Rock to Janet Jackson have paid visits to 106 & Park for surprise performances and interviews. When Rocsi isn’t hanging with the stars though, you can guarantee she’s spending time with the furry little loves of her life—her rescued dogs Chi Chi and Peanut!

As someone who grew up with animals in her life, Rocsi knows just how important animal adoption is. With so many loving animals in the world, it’s devastating to learn that 4 million cats and dogs are euthanized every year because there simply aren’t enough good homes for them to go to. The good news is that there are two simple things everyone can do to help put an end to the cat and dog overpopulation crisis: always spay or neuter your pets, and always adopt instead of purchasing animals from pet stores or breeders. Check out exclusive behind the scenes footage from Rocsi’s peta2 photo shoot, and learn more tips for helping animals in the video below!

I don’t know about you, but I can’t get enough of that girl! She’s a total cutie with a heart of gold.

Follow in Rocsi’s footsteps and pledge to help end animal homelessness by always adopting and never purchasing animals from pet stores or breeders and making sure to spay or neuter your animal companions.
