The Vamps’ James McVey Says, ‘Adopt, and Save a Life!’

Posted on by Nirali Shah

The Vamps’ lead guitarist, James McVey, teamed up with PETA to star in a campaign shot by renowned celebrity photographer Ruth Rose. James urges everyone to save lives by choosing to adopt homeless animals. The advert reminds James’ fans of the importance of adopting animals and that we should never buy them from breeders or pet shops.

We know James is a big cat lover, so we thought he was the perfect ambassador to encourage people to check out their local animal shelter or rescue group.

“There’s millions of animals in shelters—kittens … puppies, dogs, a variety of animals,” says McVey. “So go to a shelter, adopt, and save a life!”


Are you ready to add a companion animal to your family? If so, head over to your local open-door animal shelter, where you’ll be sure to find many eager animals of all breeds, shapes, sizes, and ages who’d love to become a member of your family.
