With the holidays just around the corner, PETA Asia is spreading some cheer with a brand-new video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rgz8z0ncyZU&feature=youtu.be) released today about a puppy named Christmas.

When PETA Asia fieldworkers found Christmas on the island of Taal Volcano in the Philippines, he was tiny, covered with lice, and suffering from infected, pus-filled wounds on his back. But they could tell that he was a fighter. PETA Asia's staffers persuaded his guardian to surrender the tough little dog to their care. He recovered and was adopted, and now, he's full of energy and celebrating his first namesake holiday with a loving family, a cadre of canine companions, and more toys than he has time to play with.

"This puppy's new lease on life is a reminder that the holidays aren't about the gifts under the tree but rather the difference that we can make for those among us who are suffering," says PETA Vice President Colleen O'Brien. "PETA predicts that Christmas' happy story will warm people's hearts this winter and have everyone raising a glass of vegan eggnog in celebration."

PETA's motto reads, in part, that "animals are not ours to abuse in any way." Additional photos of Christmas are available here (https://www.peta.org/blog/video-will-melt-heart-christmas-puppys-first-holiday/). Please let me know if you have any questions or if there's any further information that I can provide. Many thanks.
