In March 2020 Sarah and her partner Holland Taylor adopted a rescue dog by the name of Winnie, a chihuahua, wirehaired dachshund and rat terrier mix. "I had been really really wanting to get a dog for a very long time," Sarah told to veterinarian Dr. Patrick Mahaney in August 2020. "I'm an enormous animal-advocate and lover. I grew up with cats. I've had dogs previously in my adult life."

With her busy travel and work schedule, the actress explained that the lockdown brought on by the coronavirus pandemic finally allowed her the opportunity to dedicate time to an animal in need.

"My work-life just really kind of stopped, and I was on the phone with a friend of mine. I said, ‘should I just drive out right now to where Paw Works is? I know they are doing adoptions this weekend,'" Sarah recalled. "And she was like, ‘wait you really should' and I was like, ‘wait I should?' And she was like, ‘yeah you should go right now.' I turned to Holland and said "I'm going to get a dog." 

In 2021, she adopted another dog named Louise from Sally's Rescue, another organization located in Los Angeles.

During an October 2021 appearance on Live with Kelly and Ryan, Sarah briefly discussed her two dogs. She noted that while they looked similar to each other, "they aren't siblings." to which Ryan Seacrest then joked that the dogs "have the same stylist."

The Emmy-winner quipped back, "What if I'm there in morning diffusing her ears to give her that look. It wouldn't be above me."
