Many famous Hollywood stars are adopting pets from shelters and the trend of having flawless celebrities own flawless, pedigree dogs is slowly starting to share the spotlight with celebrities and their adopted pooches. This new trend showcases not only the beauty of celebrities in terms of aesthetics, but also the beauty of their souls and their human side, which is as, or even more, important than the former.

Each act of advocacy has a powerful effect, which makes a huge difference in the lives of those wonderful creatures still waiting for a home. Animal rights and rescue has been a flag historically hoisted by many celebrities, such as Ellen DeGeneres, Katherine Heigl, Charlize Theron, Denise Richards, the Osbourne family, Betty White, George Clooney, Brigite Bardot and many, many more.
