Gene Simmons - Gene Simmons And Shannon Tweed Urge Fans To Adopt, Not Shop For Pets
Rocker Gene Simmons and girlfriend Shannon Tweed have banded together to urge fans to adopt animals, rather than shop around for pets.
Tweed recently took her young nephew to a local Society for the Prevention of Cruelty Against Animals shelter in Canada to pick out a puppy, and after she saw how many dogs and cats were in need of a home, she made a $10,000 (£6,250) donation on the spot.
But the reality TV star wanted to do more for the organisation and so she persuaded the Kiss star to join her in a playful promotional video to encourage others to adopt, instead of spending money on a new pet at a store.
In the video, she says, "I want to tell you that you should adopt a pet from the Saskatoon Spca. They've got great animals down there."
And Simmons jokingly threatens: "Do it or we'll find out where you live."
It is unclear as to when the video was shot, but suggests Tweed and Simmons are still very much together following recent public spats on TV about the rock star's womanising ways.
