Ryan Beatty is currently touring the US with Cody Simpson, but yesterday the star took some time off to make new friends — four-legged friends, to be exact!
The 17-year-old singer (and self-proclaimed dog person!) showed his support for DoSomething.org’s Pics for Pets campaign by visiting an animal shelter in New York City, snapping photos of adorable puppies who need homes and uploading them to PicsforPets.org.
"It’s pretty much a Facebook for pets, and let’s be honest that’s pretty awesome," Ryan explains. "Seeing the reactions after posting it on Twitter, people wanted to get involved."
There were two puppies in particular that Ryan fell in love with during his visit.
"If I were in New York, I would adopt them," he says. "It’s heartwarming to see the dogs that didn’t necessarily have a great past, like Kitty the dog who got hit by a car, getting back to a great life."
