Sir Paul McCartney and The Beatles just gave a whole lot of love to PETA.

The band’s hit song, “Can’t Buy Me Love,” which is one of the most sought-after for ad campaigns, was donated to be featured in a new PSA promoting animal adoption from shelters. The music video will premiere on Sept. 30 at PETA’s 35th anniversary gala in Hollywood, where McCartney will perform with his band. Featuring adopted cats and dogs and dancing kids from salsa troupe Baila Conmigo, who were finalists on America’s Got Talent, the 30-second spot has a tagline that reads “Love is Waiting in Every Animal Shelter.”
