As the proud pet parent to canine companions who were saved from a puppy mill, dog devotees are already singing actor Orlando Brown’s praises, and now the multi-talented performer has once again put a song in the hearts of animal lovers thanks to a music video with a moving message.
Having already stepped in front of the camera for director Robert Cabral (the founder of Bound Angels, a Malibu-based nonprofit which rescues pets in peril) for a PSA promoting the option of shelter adoption at Ventura County Animal Services in Camarillo, California, the former That’s So Raven star (who recently accepted the role of National Ambassador for the American Humane Association) collaborated with Cabral for a second time on the video shoot for “Hero,” which took place at Bark Avenue Foundation, a L.A. organization with a mission to rescue and rehome companion animals and reduce pet overpopulation.
On September 17, 2011 Orlando Brown premiered “Hero” at Bark Avenue Foundation during the L.A. leg of “Get Your Licks on Route 66,” North Shore Animal League America’s mobile adoption drive. Marking L.A.’s Puppy Mill Awareness Day, over the course of the event 125 animals were microchipped, 210 vaccinated, and forever families were found for 32 dogs, 7 cats and 1 rabbit.
