As well as admiring celebrities purely for their acting or singing talents, many of us tend to like celebrities we can identify with. Who wouldn’t want to identify with Jackie Chan or Ariana Grande, right?
I’d say one of the most universal subjects is the love people have for dogs. Even Hollywood stars with busy lifestyles don’t give up to having a dog at home and sharing precious moments together
on social networks.
Jackie Chan, for example, has had two golden retrievers with him for many years. Even though both dogs are now aging and have health health problems, Jackie stresses how lucky they are compared to the lonely stray dogs on the streets.
Jackie wrote: “In support of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals Organization in Asia), I’d like to appeal to all pet lovers around the world, please try to adopt a pet instead of buying instead of buying commercially-bred animals. I hope that everyone can be more compassionate towards stray dogs, stray cats and other other stray animals.”
Another celebrity who loves to adopt dogs is George Clooney. The San Gabriel Valley Humane Society thanked him and his wife in a message:
“Millie has been adopted by George Clooney and his wife Amal!!! Millie, a Bassett Hound, now has a new brother named Louie who is also a rescue! Congratulations and thank you for adopting”
“A few months ago, a UHaul truck was found abandoned on the side of the road in Las Vegas. When police officers opened the truck, they found more than 160 Pomeranians shoved 2 to 3 into crates just big enough for a dog. They were without food. No water. No fresh air,” Katherine Heigl wrote about how she came to adopt her puppy. “One of them found his home with me meet the newest member of the Kelley family, Sergeant Major General, sir. Named for his authoritative and responsible personality. We like to call him Sergeant Snuggles…he’s not amused by the nickname.”
Drew Barrymore also cares deeply about dog rescue.
“He’s my Douglas. He’s a San Fernando Valley rescue. With all the fires, floods and tragedies that have changed people’s lives overnight in our country, many people have pets that are also family members. Animals need us too,” she wrote on Instagram.
