London: British model Amy Jackson, who made her Bollywood debut with `Ekk Deewana Tha` opposite Prateik, has teamed up with PETA India for a brand new ad campaign.

In the ad, Jackson, 22, appears as an angel holding her rescued cat Alfie next to the words "Be an Angel for Animals: Adopt. Don`t Buy!"

The ad was shot by ace photographer Nikki Lyons.

"Every time someone buys a cat or a dog from a breeder or a pet shop, a cat on the streets or in an animal shelter loses his or her chance at finding a good home", Jackson said.

"We can stop the cycle of animal homelessness and save lives by opening our hearts and homes to a loving cat or dog from an animal shelter instead of buying animals from breeders or pet shops," she added.

Jackson found Alfie when he was just 6-week-old, abandoned on the side of a busy road in a box with four other kittens. Three of them didn`t survive, and Jackson and her sister adopted the other two, Alfie and Frankie.

Jackson has been a long-time animal rights supporter and often speaks out on social-networking forums about issues such as animal adoptions and rescues and cruel horse-drawn carriages.

She was crowned Miss Teen World in 2009 and Miss Liverpool in 2010. She also made her debut in Telugu cinema with `Yevadu` and will soon be seen in a Tamil film opposite Chiyaan Vikram.
