Mob City star Jon Bernthal joins fight against animal cruelty

Jon Bernthal, star of the miniseries Mob City, has a new starring role. Bernthal is teaming up with The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) to star in a public service announcement fighting animal cruelty.

Shot by renowned celebrity photographer Art Streiber, Bernthal along with his two rescued pit bulls, Boss and Venice, star in The Humane Society of the United States' new campaign which calls on the public to report suspected or witnessed animal abuse.

Every state has laws prohibiting animal cruelty, however, a law is only as good as its enforcement, HSUS reports, and that’s why animals rely on us to protect them. “There is no excuse for animal cruelty,” says Bernthal. “Animals are among the most vulnerable beings on this planet. That's why I am urging everyone to speak up if they see or suspect cruelty; don’t expect that someone else will.”

HSUS notes that turning a blind eye to animal cruelty can lead to deadly results, including violent behavior towards fellow humans.

Bernthal, also known for his role as Shane Walsh on the television series The Walking Dead, joins a long list of celebrities who have supported The Humane Society of the United States including Ian Somerhalder, Kaley Cuoco, Woody Harrelson, Kristen Bell, Kellan Lutz and Paul Wesley.
