Love animals? We sure do at the AT!
Just like Ellen DeGeneres, Alicia Silverstone and our very own E! doll, Khloé Kardashian Odom, just to name a few celebs who donate their money and time in helping out animal shelters across the nation.
You should, too. Please don't be a Paris and go to puppy stores and breeders, which, as a direct result, are causing legions of doggies and cats to be euthanized. Thank God Margo and Charlie Casablanca, above, got saved from those horror holds!
It's totally the way, folks:
Hayden Panettiere is a mama to two rescued pups (not to mention she's an avid activist against the hunting and killing of whales). Also, our fave country gal and American Idol winner, Carrie Underwood fights against the cruelty of animals and helps find them loving homes.
You can, too:
At The Rescue Train, they strive to help find homes for those furry in need and make sure that they're well taken care of while waiting for a loving family to choose them. On top of that good stuff, Rescue's also a no-kill organization (unlike the LA city shelters where Margo and Charlie came from, and where the majority of animals are not nearly as lucky).
Check out the The Rescue Train to see what you can do to help out! If not, for heaven's sake, just Google animal shelters nearest you and do the right thing. Please.
It's the only thing we want for Christmas. Really.
