“It has been raining cats and dogs, and many puppies and kittens are in need of good homes,” said Raveena. “People can help animals by contacting PETA India if they are looking to welcome a dog or cat into their homes, by getting their own animal companions sterilised, and by supporting the sterilisation efforts of non-governmental organisations,” she added.
