Washington Mystics’ superstar Elena Delle Donne has teamed up with PETA in an effort to raise awareness on adopting shelter dogs in an ad campaign.
“My wife had adopted Rasta when she was in college. And I was lucky enough to meet Rasta at age 4, and now she’s my daughter, too.” Delle Donne said (h/t ESPN). “They are the greatest part of our family. Coming home and being able to see their excited faces and their wagging tails — it just kind of erases anything that didn’t go so great in the day.”
“There are so many animals … in need of homes,” Delle Donne said. “Just look at their sweet little faces and their kind hearts, and you can just make their life by bringing them home and giving them a caring family to be around.”
