Ellen DeGeneres Wants You To Talk To The Governator

675508

As she and BFF Paris Hilton would say, this is “HUGE”!

Daytime talk show host with the most, animal lover Ellen DeGeneres has tweeted us to tell Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger NOT to limit the time that animals are kept in shelters from 6 days to 3 days before being euthanized.

This is IMPORTANT; think of all the wonderful animals that are being put to sleep through no fault of their own and would make fabulous companions for people. It’s just not fair!

Please email him at:  http://www.gov.ca.gov

Seriously…this is HUGE!

Daytime’s darling and an animal’s best friend, Ellen DeGeneres, a huge animal lover and advocate, is recycling her wardrobe!

And not surprisingly, the proceeds are going to The Humane Society of the United States!

Ellen’s auctioning off 25 items each week  on eBay that she’s worn on her shows or to award shows,  and she’s encouraged other celebs to join her by donating to the cause. Yesterday, the Pussycat Dolls added a signed hoodie and a visit to the set of their next video to the auction. Other celebs who are participating include Drew Barrymore, Jessica Lange and Zac Efron!

To snag some of this cool swag, check it out HERE.

Ellen, is there any way we could love you more???

Ellen DeGeneres’ Pet Food Project

Ellen DeGeneres

Ellen DeGeneres is making news with dogs again but not like in the past with the whole Iggy business, this time it’s food for dogs!

Partnering with Halo, DeGeneres announced to Parade that the food (unnamed for now) can even be eaten by humans.

Ours is all human grade. It’s all natural. And yes, you can eat it. People love their animals so much so that they put little clothes on them and necklaces and booties and things like that. And if you love your animal, then you should feed them something that’s not dangerous for them. There’s a lot of poisonous stuff that they’re putting in a lot of that food, those by-products.”

So you know what that makes one think, right? Has Ellen tasted her own product?

I have not tasted it yet. A lot of my people have. I have my people taste it first. I have people tasters. No, my life’s going pretty good. I don’t need to eat it yet.”

Ellen DeGeneres Helps Rescue Animal Shelters Across the U.S.

The New York Post is reporting that Ellen DeGeneres is trying to revamp her image after Iggy-gate – teaming up with fellow animal lover and former Meow Mix owner Richard Thompson to rebuild shabby animal shelters across the United States.

DeGeneres has featured Thompson on her show to talk about the campaign and the first project – a makeover of a sanctuary in Monkey Run, Ark. – is currently under way, with Thompson footing the bill.

“We’re halfway done now,” Thompson told Page Six. “We’ve been redoing it for a woman named Janice Wolf, who was found by Ellen. We bulldozed the place, and we’re building a new hay barn and a new barn. She’s got almost 60 animals, including a zebra, some Watusi cattle and 20 dogs, some that are three-legged, blind and deaf.”

DeGeneres and Thompson became friends because they are both “pet nuts,” said Thompson, who added that he doesn’t mind his pal basking in the spotlight while he does the hard labor and foots the bill.

“She can be the celebrity. She wanted to do something good. I’m proud of her, she believes in this,” said Thompson, who sold Meow Mix to Del Monte and now runs the animal-based Web site ZooToo.com.

“These pets are bringing the community together. Ellen’s one of the best rescue people I’ve ever met, she got a bad rap over Iggy,” he added.

Thompson will unveil his project tomorrow, and The Ellen DeGeneres Show will be there to tape it for a future airing. DeGeneres’ rep declined to comment.
