Kellan Lutz Pushes For Adoption

Twilight hunk Kellan Lutz has always been a huge fan of dogs and now he's the poster child for doggie adoption!

Kellan is PETA's latest spokesperson in their "Adopt, Don't Buy" campaign.

Kellan tells PETA, "If anything, I think mutts stay the healthiest. There are surprisingly so many animals in these shelters. It's sad, and knowing that they get euthanized...and there's a lot you can do...spay or neuter your pets so that doesn't happen."

Lutz explains that he found Kola in a shelter, curled up and frightened in the back of a cage. "I touched her toe and said, 'Hey, what's your name?' " he recalls. "She spoke to me." Warned that she was a puller, Lutz decided to walk her anyway, and knew then that he'd found the one. "From that day on, I loved her," he says.

According to PETA, about 8 million unwanted dogs and cats enter shelters every year but you can do your part and adopt, don't buy!
