Celebrity rescue dogs: Each year, approximately 4 million dogs and cats are rescued and taken into their forever homes.
Turns out even celebrities love their animals just as much as we do. Although you might assume that celebrities buy their pups from expensive breeders, many choose to adopt instead.
This amazing trend of rescue puppies is one we can definitely get behind, and we’re here to show you just how popular this movement is in today’s society. Let’s get into it!
Celebrities Adopting Adorable Rescue Puppies
Gisele Bundchen & Tom Brady
Even though they could easily afford any animal on the market, this powerhouse couple chose to adopt their adorable new friend, named Fluffy, in early 2016 from Wags and Walks Rescue.
Huge animal advocates, Gisele and Tom are also the owners of two other rescue dogs.
Did you know that Hollywood’s notorious sexiest gentleman is also an avid doggie lover?
In 2015, George and Amal Clooney adopted Millie, a 4-year old homeless Basset Hound from the Humane Society.
This dog joined their other rescue dog, Louie, and the two quickly became best friends.
Dog owners need to make many choices. From figuring out your dog’s diet to buying the best air purifier for pet hair removal, (allergies?) you will undoubtedly be faced with many important decisions. Be like Clooney and check out rescue options first.
Just because she’s a legendary and award-winning actress doesn’t mean Hilary Swank is above animal justice and animal rights.
In fact, Hilary is such an advocate for abandoned and rescued dogs that she created her own charity, the Hilaroo Foundation, after falling in love with Karoo on set in South Africa.
Hilary was so smitten with this dog that she essentially had her nursed back to health (the poor Karoo was completely full of worms, covered in fleas, and had been doused in kerosene).
When Karoo died prematurely, Hilary knew she had to turn her life into a legacy and help other dogs, and that was the catalyst behind launching her organization.
Turns out this famous country star isn’t just about creating memorable music and rocking hard on stage.
She’s also the proud owner of six rescue dogs and the founder of Muttnation Foundation, an organization that actively works to provide safety for thousands of rescue dogs and rescue puppies around the country.
Muttnation is passionate about providing education and facilitation of adopting shelter pets and keeping these animals safe and healthy.
Aaron Rogers & Olivia Munn
In 2015, this couple became proud parents of a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Chance. The actress has happily posted adorable pictures of her dog on Instagram and has urged her followers to look into rescuing dogs as opposed to buying them.
We all know social media is full of adorable animals. Check out her Instagram for some of the cutest doggie pics out there!
Although owning a dog is a lot of hard work, it’s also incredibly fun and rewarding.
Take these celebrities’ advice to heart. Be sure that rescuing is one of the choices you decide to make.
