Joined by her dog, Blue, Alex Morgan unveils new ad campaign for PETA

Alex Morgan is known for being one of the best soccer players in the world, but she's also a devoted animal lover and is passionate about spreading the word about rescue dogs.

Joined by her own rescue dog, Blue, Morgan recently shot an ad campaign for PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). In a video for the spot, she talks about the importance of adopting and reveals how Blue is an important member of her family.

"We're not owners -- if anything, he owns us," she says. "He owns our heart... . There's so many animals on the streets and so many animals that aren't able to live the life that they should be able to live, so I wanted to adopt a dog. Animals should always be a part of the family, be taken care of, just as any child would be."

If you're anything like me, you already know how amazing rescue dogs are (shout out to my pup Beau, who definitely can't read, but who I know would appreciate this if he could), but I think everyone will appreciate the video below, featuring Morgan and Blue in all their adorable glory:

Rescue dogs really are the best dogs.
