Mumbai: Actress and animal lover Raveena Tandon has adopted two stray puppies who join an existing team of three rescued dogs.
One is a male, now named Luv, and the other female, called Ganga.
When Raveena, who is married to film distributor Anil Thadani, heard from her friends at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India about the many puppies who had been found struggling in the monsoon rains, she decided to help by adopting two puppies.
"It`s hard to describe the joy of taking dogs struggling to survive in the streets and giving them a loving home and a second chance at life", the 38-year-old said in a statement.
"I urge everyone who has the time, space and resources to adopt an Indian `community dog` and see for themselves the unconditional love they`ll receive from a very grateful animal," she added.
This isn`t the first time that Raveena has teamed up with PETA to help animals. She was recently dressed in a snake print (not snakeskin) gown for a PETA ad that read: "Wearing Exotic Skins Kills - Leave Wildlife out of Your Wardrobe."
