Bollywood actress #Zarine-Khan of Veer fame will get the Hero to Animals award from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta) for rescuing a cat.
The actress, an animal lover, rescued a malnourished cat from the streets of #Mumbai and rushed it to a veterinary hospital. She kept a tab on the cat’s progress and even walked barefoot to Mahim Dargah to pray for her recovery. Khan has adopted the cat and calls her Softy.
“The rescue of Softy shows that Khan’s beauty is much more than skin deep,” said Peta campaign coordinator Madhuri Deshmukh.
