Her two rescue dogs may have always viewed Yvonne Strahovski as an angel, but they got confirmation when they posed with the actress for a new ad for PETA’s animal adoption campaign.
The Chuck star, sporting wings and a halo, stands with her own rescue pooches Chazzie and Wilbur under the words, “Be an angel for animals. Always adopt. Never buy.”
The actress was photographed for the campaign by Robert Sebree, and she brought her two constant companions along for the shoot. But, she says, they’re not the only camera-ready rescue animals around.
“There are just so many dogs [in shelters] that are just as gorgeous [as the ones being sold],” Strahovski says. “Whether they’re mixed or purebred or whatever–they’re all gorgeous, and they all have personalities, and they all need a home.”
And just because Chazzie and Wilbur came from rescue organizations doesn’t make them any less capable of giving their mom lots of affection.
“I come home from a hard day at work, and I see these two happy faces when I walk in the door,” she says. “It’s unconditional love.”
