5 Celebrities Who Adopted (Adorable!) Rescue Puppies

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.

George Clooney

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.

Hilary Swank

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.

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.

“My dogs LIVE 4 their hikes,” Jenna recently tweeted after a hike at Runyan Canyon in the Hollywood Hills.

Hopefully the dogs were good training for the couple’s new human baby!

Maria Menounos loves to bring her dog to work on the Extra set in L.A. Actually, she has a growing brood of 8 dogs, and this is the biggest of them named, “Apollo“.

maria menounos apolloApollo was rescued by Maria from an L.A. animal shelter years ago after he was found injured, having been thrown out of a moving car. She calls dogs “a gift from God,” and is very involved in dog rescue. She has received an award from Friends of L.A. Animal Shelters for her commitment to animals, and has hosted the North Shore Animal League’s Dogcatemy Celebrity Gala.

Maria is Greek, so I guess that’s part of the inspiration for naming him after Apollo; the Greek god of the sun, truth and prophecy, healing, music, and poetry. Good work, Maria!

Zooey Deschanel Adopts Rescue Dogs –  A couple of years ago, Zooey Deschanel tweeted that she wanted a dog, adding, “I want something cute to hang out with and hug!”  Well, good news for Zooey, as she just adopted a couple of sweet rescue puppies that she named Zelda and Dot.

“I have to thank the #billfoundation for the greatest, sweetest, most wonderful dogs in the world. Apples of my eye!” she recently tweeted. Nice to see the, “Adopt don’t shop” trend being promoted by stars like Zooey, showing that dogs are more than trendy accessories.

Zooey has to be the coolest girl in Hollywood, and The Bill Foundation is pretty cool too. They’re a Beverly Hills based organization that takes dogs from area shelters and finds loving homes for them with great people like Zooey.
