Pamela welcomes 'Pyari' to California

A known advocate for animal rights, Baywatch star Pamela Anderson was moved by the plight of dogs on the streets when she came to India in 2010 to appear as a guest on Bigg Boss 4.

So when Anderson, an honorary director of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals US, learned that PETA India Chief Functionary Poorva Joshipura was headed to the States to meet her colleagues and to visit her family, the actress asked if Joshipura would take along a homeless Indian puppy.

Anderson has decided to name her new family member 'Pyari or 'Loved One'. The puppy was rescued from a construction site in Mumbai.

'I'm tickled to be able to give Pyari a loving home,' Anderson was quoted as saying in the statement.

'I already have rescued dogs and I urge everyone to join me in adopting a homeless 'desi' dog from their local animal shelter or the streets instead of buying a so-called 'purebred'. Desi dogs are stars: add love and they become healthy and beautiful and will love and protect you always,' she said.
