This dog rescue PSA hilariously slams Ashley Madison cheaters, wins the Internet.

Taking "man's best friend" to a whole other level.

"Adopt a real dog, instead of settling for a man who acts like one."

Boom.

That slogan is brought to you by the cackling woman above, who's in a new campaign video for Rescue Dogs Rock NYC. The nonprofit saves abandoned dogs and rescues others from kill shelters and puppy mills, with the hope of placing them into forever homes.

The video hilariously combines two topics that couldn't be more different: Dog adoption ... and the recent Ashley Madison hack.

In case you missed it, in July 2015, Ashley Madison — a matchmaking website for cheating spouses — was hacked. Millions of users' personal information was made available online.

Cheating on your partner is, of course, no laughing matter, and hacking a website and exposing millions of people's personal info is certainly not OK. But a video that both lightheartedly defends those who were cheated on and fights for our furry friends in need? That's actually pretty funny.

While the video might make you laugh, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC is focused on a very serious issue.

There are plenty of dogs in need of a loving family. While somewhere between 3 and 4 million cats and dogs are adopted from shelters each year, 2.7 million are euthanized, according to estimates by the National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy.

Amanda loves her foster human sibs. She also loves her foster doggie sib. She's an 11 week old lab hound mix and is a sweet as could be. Her brother Aaron was adopted so Amanda waits....

"Way too many amazing animals are euthanized every single day simply because they are homeless," according to the Rescue Dogs Rock NYC website.

There is a strange right-wing logic that suggests when minorities fight for equal rights it's somehow a threat to the rights already held by those in the majority or who hold power.

Like when the Black Lives Matter movement started, many on the right claimed that fighting for black people to be treated equally somehow meant that other people's lives were not as valuable, leading to the short-lived All Lives Matter movement.

This same "oppressed majority" logic is behind the new Straight Pride movement which made headlines in August after its march through the streets of Boston.

For most of us, the hypothetical question of whether we would stick with a boyfriend or girlfriend through the trials of cancer and the treatments is just that – a hypothetical question. We would like to think we would do the right thing, but when Max Allegretti got the chance to put his money where mouth is, he didn't hesitate for a second.

Where did we go wrong as a society to make women feel uncomfortable about breastfeeding in public?

No one should feel they have the right to tell a woman when, where, and how she can breastfeed. The stigma should be placed on those who have the nerve to tell a woman feeding her child to "Cover up" or to ask "Where's your modesty?"

Breasts were made to feed babies. Yes, they also have a sexual function but anyone who has the maturity of a sixth grader knows the difference between a sexual act and feeding a child.

The Me Too movement has shed light on just how many actresses have been placed in positions that make them feel uncomfortable. Abuse of power has been all too commonplace. Some actresses have been coerced into doing something that made them uncomfortable because they felt they couldn't say no to the director. And it's not always as flagrant as Louis C.K. masturbating in front of an up-and-coming comedian, or Harvey Weinstein forcing himself on actresses in hotel rooms.

But it's important to remember that you can always firmly put your foot down and say no. While speaking at The Hollywood Reporter's annual Actress Roundtable, Jennifer Lopez opened up about her experiences with a director who behaved inappropriately. Laura Dern, Awkwafina, Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong'o, and Renee Zellweger were also at the roundtable.
