Celebrities adopting rescue shelter dogs

Let’s face it, we all like looking into the celebrity world and reading all the hot juicy gossip.  Whether we want to admit it or not!  I will admit it is one of my guilty pleasures.  Well, it’s better than eating 5 glazed Dunkin Donuts at midnight when I am bored on a Friday night.  Can you say zero calories!  My point is we are all intrigued and curious about their lifestyles.  And, they can influence our thought process especially when it is a positive thing.  Such as celebs adopting rescue and shelter animals.  They certainly have the money to go to a breeder or high end pet shop but they chose to adopt a rescue dog.  Charlize Theron has rescued 8 dogs over the years.  Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Sandra Bullock, and the list goes on and on.  Miranda Lambert is so passionate about rescue animals that she even created a non-profit organization called The Muttnation Foundation.  I just really wish the tabloids would take more pics of them with their rescue pooches instead of a Starbucks coffee cup in their hand.  Who cares about the coffee cup!  I have to admit when I saw pics of Ryan Reynolds and Ryan Gosseling with their rescue pooches I had to stop what I was doing!  All of a sudden they were on a much higher level than just sexy!

Now a days celebrities influence everything from fashion, hairstyles to vacation spots.  And the public loves it.  Well, how about putting that celebrity influence to good use like adopting rescue animals.  It only seems natural.  I say let’s get celebs to talk about their rescue and shelter pet adoptions!  I think next time Barbara Walters interviews someone famous she should ask if they have an adopted dog! :)  People love to talk about their pets just much as their kids.  Yes we want to know who Ryan Gosling is dating but we also want to know how he is such a sweet guy that he adopted a homeless dog.  The sad truth is 2.7 million homeless animals (dogs and cats) are euthanized each year in the US.  I guess my point is if celebrities start voicing how much of an advocate they are about adopting rescue and shelter dogs than I really think adoption numbers would be higher and higher for homeless animals.  Because of course, everything that celebs experience is so cool that we want to be just like them!

Spoiled and Fabulous Rescue Dogs

vicks3 APR  209515

Happy 2015!  Our first blog post…it took us a while but we finally got our blog going!  So our belief is to focus on the positive of finding loving homes for rescue and shelter dogs.  I have rescued stray, abused animals since I was a teen and it is certainly something in my blood.  Talk to any rescue or shelter volunteer and you will see they have the strongest emotional strength.  But, it all gets to us eventually.  We have all seen those ads and know the plight of these animals.  Most of us can’t even watch the entire ad without having a tear drop.  So, instead of thinking the worst we want to shed light on the good. Our goal is to bring awareness to the public to adopt rescue and shelter pets and show the positive outcome. In fact, our logo and company was inspired by this very thought.  Rescue a pooch – so they can live a spoiled and fabulous life!  But we also wanted to add some glitz and glam and fashion to this inspiration. You can definitely capture a much larger audience through fashion!

So let’s talk rehab for these pooches!  I know there are some folks that are hesitant to adopt a rescue or shelter dog because they feel they are broken or harmful.  Well, then that leads me to the dogs in Michael Vick’s fighting ring.  Remember that guy?  Best Friends Animal Society was one of the animal welfare groups that rescued 22 dogs out of the 51 pit bulls found on the property.  Many more were saved from other rescue groups.  I think these dogs would be the epitome of non adoptable dogs!  I am here to tell you some of those dogs attend events to help other abused animals by interacting with the community.  They are best friends with their new-found “forever” families and they kiss and love which is what every dog does best!  I am very happy to say all of these fighting dogs found amazing, loving and of course spoiled and fabulous lives at the animal sanctuary or with their new loving families!  Dogs are not natural killers.  Humans teach those behaviors and we also have the ability to show them love, rehabilitate and give them a second chance.  Rescue a pooch – so they can live a spoiled and fabulous life!

XOXO!
