Heart Touching Celebrity Pet Adoption Stories

Raising awareness for rescue pets is what Dogsee chew is all about. If you think celebrities were made only to bask in the glitz and glam of their fame, think again. Here’s a roundup of some of your favorite celebrities from Hollywood and Bollywood, who’ve proved themselves as ‘true stars’, by shunning away from buying pups so that they can rescue and adopt.

1. Ryan Reynolds and Baxter

We loved him in Deadpool and now we love him for being such a sweet human being. Ryan Reynolds fell in love with his now pup ‘Baxter’, when he was looking for a dog for his friend. He believes that they’ve been best buds ever since they laid their eyes on each other. Now that makes us go, pawww!

Kristen Bell, who received appreciation for lending her voice to ‘Anna’ in Frozen, has earned a paw-riffic applause from us for rescuing three adorable mutts (Lola, Sadie and Mr.Shakes) and giving them a loving home. Amazingly, she rescued one of her dogs while in New Orleans, when aiding with the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina. Kudos to you Kirsten Bell!
