Sia Sets Up Dog-Adoption Fairs at Her Concerts
It’s no secret that pop superstar Sia is a huge animal advocate. Not only did she team up with PETA US to help end animal homelessness, she also donated her song “Free the Animal” to a PETA video condemning fur and exotic skins and was named PETA’s Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity in 2014.
Now, Sia – who shares her home with several adopted dogs – is helping to find homes for more homeless pups by hosting adoption drives at her concerts.

On her US tour, the animal-loving singer has teamed up with various rescue organisations, helping to find new homes for dogs in need.

Of course, adopting a dog is a decision that can’t be made lightly, and interested people attending Sia’s concerts will need to be assessed and deemed suitable as guardians for the dog they wish to adopt.
Dogs require a commitment of more than a decade, and adding one to your family is something that takes lots of thought. However, as anyone who has adopted a dog will tell you, the love you’ll receive in return makes everything worth it!
Sia regularly takes to Twitter to encourage her fans to help dogs and to profess her passion for helping “man’s best friend”.

We can all follow Sia’s example by being sure to desex our companion animals and adopt from shelters (rather than supporting pet stores or breeders) and also never leaving dogs tied up or chained outdoors.
