+ Watch Madison Beer Discuss Being Kind to Animals.

“It’s really important to speak up for animals because they don’t have a voice of their own and they can’t speak up for themselves,” Madison says. “So if you suspect or see anybody that you think is being cruel to an animal, then you should tell an adult that you trust or call the police.”

While it is tempting to go out and adopt every dog and cat out there, and while adopting a pet is a great thing to do, she points out it’s also important to make sure you’re ready to take care of a pet. Sometimes people adopt before they’re ready and they might not be able to keep their pet and give them the forever home they deserve.

If you are ready for a new pet, Madison talks about how adoption is def the way to go. “[Shelters] are really overcrowded right now, and a lot of animals are being turned away or even euthanized just because of the lack of so many good homes. So it’s really important to also get your dog spayed or neutered.” That goes for cats, too!

Madison encourages you to get involved with peta2, and to also just spread awareness about animal rights on social media. She talks about her own three beloved dogs, so you know why animal rights matter so much to her!
