When Pamela Anderson visited India recently, her heart was captured by the plight of the homeless dogs she saw on the streets.

So when Anderson, an honorary director of PETA US, learned that PETA India’s Poorva Joshipura was headed to the States to meet with her overseas colleagues and to visit her family, the Baywatch star asked if Joshipura would bring a homeless puppy with her. Anderson has decided to name her newest family member, who was rescued from a construction site in Mumbai, Pyari, or “Loved One”.

“I’m thrilled to be able to give Pyari a loving home”, says Anderson. “I already have rescued dogs, and I urge everyone to join me in adopting a homeless dog from their local animal shelter or the streets instead of buying a so-called ‘pedigree’.”

Every time someone buys a dog from a breeder or a pet shop, a dog on the streets or in an animal shelter loses his or her chance at finding a good home. Each year, thousands of cats and dogs are euthanized in the UK alone because there aren’t enough good homes for them. Others are abandoned on the streets, where they starve to death, get injured or killed by vehicles or fall prey to abuse.
