International star and animal advocate Leona Lewis is being featured in a new PSA for the World Society for the Protection of Animals.

The organization, which boasts more than 900 member organisations in over 150 countries, is the world's largest alliance of animal welfare societies. For this particular campaign, they sent Lewis to a bear sanctuary in Romania to see first-hand the work they've accomplished in the field. “I want to live in a world where animal welfare matters and animal cruelty ends, and that’s the charity’s goal too,” said the 25-year-old.

"Visiting the Romanian bear sanctuary was truly an eye-opening experience," said Lewis. "These bears have suffered horrible tragedies, but now have an amazing second chance at life in a safe and peaceful environment – all thanks to the WSPA and its supporters. I am honored to be a spokesperson for their campaigns, and I encourage others to join in our fight to save all animals from suffering, worldwide."
