As the Humane Society International’s first Global Ambassador, Ke$ha continues to fight for animal rights, and this time she is lending a hand to street dogs.
More than an important issue to the singer, this is something that hits close to home. In a special message, Ke$ha reveals one night on an island in the South Pacific, she and a friend witnessed two abused dogs “who literally had been super glued together.” Even though they managed to help separate the dogs, they had to watch man’s best friend walk away, because no community resources or shelters were available.
“HSI works on behalf of street dogs like these every day, everywhere,” she explains. “That’s why I’m asking you to support their life-changing work.”
The singer is hoping to reach out to as many people as possible with the hope of preventing the abuse of street dogs. She is just as passionate for these animals, as she is for her music.
By becoming an HSI ‘Street Dog Defender’ Ke$ha explains, a donation of $20 per month “will go toward humane spay and neuter surgeries to keep the dog population down and vaccinations against rabies — a deadly virus that can kill both dogs and humans — and so much more.”
Street dogs in India, Bhutan, the Philippines, Haiti and Chili are just a few who can benefit. For more information, watch Ke$ha’s video below.
