We all have this image of celebrities owning the finest things life has to offer: designer clothes and designer handbags, and also the perfectly genetically-engineered pets to match those handbags. However, there are many celebs in favor of adopting pets, to give the best lives to those most in need.
Some of these celebrities are longtime animal activists, while others just happened to fall in love with an animal who needed a home. Let’s meet some of their cute rescues:
The ‘Prisoner’ singer recently fell in love with a pup she added to her dog squad, a white rescue pit bull named Milky whom she named her tour after.
Mad Men star John Hamm just adopted Splash, a puppy that was returned to the shelter twice. The nonprofit organization “I Stand With My Pack” said he is living a fairy tale now, after having lost hope for the pup.
Charlize Theron is known for her stance on animal rights, working with animal rights organizations, including PETA and Best Friends Animal Society. While she’s rescued many animals before, she currently has two happy dogs, Leo and Cleo.
has her own dog squad. She has rescued many of them from shelters and urges her fans to adopt, too. And she says she has an extra special bond with her beagle-chihuahua mix Toulouse.
During one of his movie projects, Chris Evans met this little doggy. He didn’t realize at first that these weren’t trained movie dogs, but actual rescue pups up for adoption. He decided to adopt him through the regular process. There is even a video of him meeting Dodger for the first time.
This award-winning actress has rescued four dogs named Lucky, Karoo, Rumi, and Kai. The Oscar winning actress has her very own animal shelter and she claims that she has already rescued and found homes for thousands of dogs.
Efron rescued a pit bull named Maca from the humane pet shop in L.A. Reportedly, Maca was on her way to being euthanized when the pet shop rescued her, soon after Zac came in and adopted her and gave her a forever home.
The football player and his family adopted an adorable new black-and-white puppy named Fluffy from “Wags and Walks.” Brady posted a hilarious video on his Facebook page showing off the puppy in iconic Lion King fashion.
It is awesome how these celebrities have changed the lives of their adorable pets. Let’s all do more to help promote adoption and create a more humane world for the thousands of rescue animals who need forever homes.
