Baby Phat designer Kimora Lee Simmons stripped for a cause and went naked for PETA's new "Be an Angel" ad campaign to rescue animals. Wearing little more than a giant pair of angel wings and sitting with her rescued dog, Zoe, the model and fashion designer, who has been rescuing animals off the streets since she was a small child, wants everyone to know that chaining is never an option when it comes to your canine friends. “You cannot chain a dog—the chains are heavy; it’s cruel,” she says. “[Dogs] need to run and play ….” Unfortunately, running and playing isn’t in the picture for the millions of dogs who are left chained and unattended in back yards across the country daily. Exposed to all weather extremes, they are often denied even the most basic necessities, including food, fresh water, and shelter, and are left to the mercy of other animals and cruel humans with no way to escape. Life on the end of a chain is no life at all.
In this exclusive video, Kimora asks everyone to do whatever they can to help backyard dogs. “Everybody should do the best they can,” she says, “because a lot of little bests-you-can add up to a lot of saved animals.”
