Cody Simpson is the latest shiny celebrity to feature in the a campaign for PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals).

Alas, he's not got naked and covered himself in scales or anything saucy like that, but he is holding a teensy little dog, which suits us just fine.

He also pulled out his sweet Australian drawl to remind us all not to lock our animals in hot cars and kill them.

Thanks for the heads-up Codemeister.
