You may know Jared Gilmore as the young boy who plays the role of Henry in the ABC fairytale drama, “Once Upon a Time,” but did you also know that he has a passion for animals? According to Just Jared Jr. on Sept. 29, the 13-year-old actor has teamed with peta2 to come up with an adorable ad to raise awareness in being a responsible pet owner.
The ad shows the teen sitting with his own adorable dogs, Cooper and Emma, as it reads, ‘Give Your Animals Their Happily Ever After.’ It looks like he knows what it takes to be a responsible pet owner to keep animals healthy and happy.
“You can just talk to them and tell them all your worries, all your needs, all your problems, and they’ll just listen,” Jared said. “You always have to give your animals love and affection, hold them, love them, and pet them, let them lick you.”
Jared spoke out about making sure that pets are not left in a hot car alone or they could die from heatstroke. He urges kids that if they see an animal in that situation, to go find some help to get them out quickly. Jared also encourages pet adoption so that a dog or a cat can experience all of the love and care that they deserve to have.
From the looks of his Twitter profile photo, the teen actor also loves horses. It is great to see that this young celebrity has a big heart for pets and he also believes in fairytale happy endings.
Will you give a homeless pet their forever home and give them their ‘happily ever after?’
