“Twilight” star urges adoption

Canadian-born actress Rachelle Lefevre, one of the stars of the movie “Twilight,” has taped a public service announcement for Best Friends Animal Society, urging viewers to adopt rather than purchase from a pet store or breeder.

Lefevre, who plays Victoria in both “Twilight” and its sequel, “New Moon,” is the new spokeswoman for Best Friends’ Puppies Aren’t Products campaign.

 As a spokeswoman, she appears in public service announcements urges holiday shoppers who are thinking of getting puppies as Christmas presents to “adopt, don’t shop.”

I think that’s wonderful. But, what happened to the TV show about Best Friends. It was one of my favorite shows and I miss it.

Hi lr,
Do you mean Dogtown? As far as I know that’s still on. Currently we’re seeing repeats, such as this coming Friday’s epsiode, “A Fighting Chance.” But the Best Friends’ website says the new season begins in January with a follow up episode on the Michael Vick dogs’ progress.
