A national pet shelter organization is urging Katie Holmes to consider adoption after she was spotted shopping for a puppy in a Manhattan pet store, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

The Batman Begins actress took her daughter Suri to a high-end pet shop on Saturday.

A sales assistant took two of the pups out of their display cases to show the actress. One of the tiny dogs was a French bulldog and the other looked to be a Morkie, Yorkshire Terrier/Maltese mix.

Holmes ultimately left the store without a puppy and that had a disappointed Suri in tears.

But now the North Shore Animal League America – the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization – is inviting the soon-to-be-ex-Mrs. Tom Cruise to visit their facilities and adopt a dog through their organization.

“it’s a matter of education,” Devera Lynn, spokesperson for the Animal League, tells Radar exclusively.

“Unfortunately most pet stores are provided their dogs from commercial breeding organizations otherwise known as puppy mills.

“The breeder parents are not kept in conditions that are acceptable to caring for companion animals. They don’t get the medical care they need. They are overbred and when the dog is no longer able to breed they either sell them to auctions or kill them.”

The New York-based organization is inviting Katie to follow their motto to “adopt a pet and save a life.”

“If you go to a shelter you’re going to find beautiful, healthy puppies, even purebreds,” the spokeswoman says. “Not only that you will also be saving a life.

“We would love to show Katie the animals we have if she is ready to adopt.”
