Cody Simpson: Make Your Animals' Life Paradise
"It's like having another member of your family," he says of his beloved pet in a new video for PETA, part of a campaign to encourage proper care of pets.
"Never leave your dog in a hot car," he says. "[And] if you ever see animal abuse, please never be silent."
Calling his own canine companion the inspiration behind his foray into animal activism, the 15-year-old goes on to ask his fans, and animal lovers everywhere, to stand up for defenseless creatures who may be in need.
"It's a sad thing to see sometimes when people don't treat their pets right," Simpson says.
