American Pickers' Mike Wolfe Finds Treasure in Animal SheltersHistory Channel Star Featured in LCA's Adopt, Don't Shop! PSA (May 08, 2012)
LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/08/12 -- Mike Wolfe, star of The History Channel's American Pickers is featured in the latest PSA for Last Chance for Animals' Adopt, Don't Shop! campaign. The PSA, created by famed celebrity photographer Christopher Ameruoso, aims to educate viewers about the horror of puppy mills and encourages getting treasured companion animals from shelters. Watch the PSA here.
Sitting next to Bentley, a St. Bernard rescued from death row, Wolfe states, "Four million animals are euthanized because they can't find a home and a staggering number of them are older animals, just like Bentley. Let's give them a chance to become an American classic. Help save man's best friend. Adopt, Don't Shop!"
In addition to the video, Wolfe joins celebrities such as Maria Menounos, Missi Pyle, Pamela Anderson, Holly Madison, Mike Tyson, Mackenzie Phillips, and Jillian Michaels in the latest of 27 print ads Ameruoso has produced for LCA.
"I encourage everyone to share this PSA far and wide. The more people who see the wonderful work Christopher Ameruoso and Mike Wolfe have created together, the fewer animals will die in shelters," says Chris DeRose, LCA Founder and President.
