JACKIE CHAN URGES 62 MILLION FANS TO ‘ADOPT, DON’T SHOP’
Action star @JackieChan recently posted a picture of himself to social media with his two blond golden retrievers to commemorate the Chinese New Year and the Year of the Dog. However, the caption was not the expected ‘Happy New Year’ post. Chan wrote a thorough post asking his sixty-two million followers to adopt their next companion animal from a shelter.
Chan has been a proud dog-lover for years. His social media is sprinkled with photos of his two golden retrievers, JJ and Jones; and he has been known to work with several animal rights organizations on various campaigns promoting animal welfare. Most recently, Chan partnered with the World Society For The Protection of Animals (WSPA) and the Asia Chapter of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). Chan recognizes his celebrity status influence, and he wields it to support animal welfare.
“In support of PETA…I’d like to make an appeal to all pet lovers around the world, try adopting a pet instead of buying commercially bred animals,” Chan wrote on his Facebook post: “I hope everyone can be more compassionate towards stray dogs, stray cats, and other stray animals.” Photo credit @JackieChan/Facebook and @JackieChan/Instagram
