Kingston is the face of the new Peta2 campaign that asks owners not to chain their dogs as it often leads to neglect.

The rapper believes that dogs should be treated like any other family member rather than a burglar alarm, using the motto "Chill with your dogs- don’t chain them," according to Peta2.com.

"Look at it like being a human person," Kingston explains in the video. "Your family member is outside…and that’s how they should look at it."

Kingston also uses the ad to profess his love for his new furry companion, Sunshine, who often accompanies him to the studio.

Chaining your dogs may cause them to become hostile, according to helpinganimals.com. Animal advocates suggest that treating a dog more compassionately could lead to a friendly animal and may prevent dogs from becoming overly aggressive.ADNFCR-2720-ID-19532943-ADNFCR
