*PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has tapped T-Pain and his labelmate Sixx Mann for a new PSA suggesting that pets be treated just like anyone else in your family.
The artists share their personal experiences with pets, while also advocating for their protection.
“Pets are family and they should be treated as such,” says T-Pain. “I think the most important thing people should know [is to] treat your dog how you’d like to be treated. Your dog is going to love you as much as you love [him or her].”
The Florida native also jokes that his dog Rollo only uses his home’s elevator to travel throughout the three-story crib, and warns new adopters to be careful and prepared for what they are about to embark on: “It’s pretty much like having a baby.”
T-Pain and Sixx Mann join a long list of artists to have aligned with PETA, including D.R.A.M., Eve, Kid Ink, RZA, Sia and Waka Flocka Flame.
PETA continues to use their platform to promote animal conservation, as they penned a letter to Drake on Monday (March 19) urging him to end his partnership with the Canada Goose line, as the company’s strategy is “definitely not part of God’s Plan.”
PETA has urged rapper and singer Drake to cut ties with the company, informing him that the fur on its jackets comes from coyotes whose necks are crushed or whose legs are cut to the bone—making their deaths excruciatingly painful, terrifying, and prolonged. Yet Canada Goose continues to add coyote fur to its parkas, and Drake’s company, October’s Very Own, continues to partner with it.
We’re just saying, Drake: You could do better. There’s no excuse for an artist and role model of your caliber to disregard the acute suffering of these sensitive, feeling beings. Please cut ties with this company immediately, and moving forward, partner only with progressive brands that don’t harm animals.
