He may no longer go by Snoop Dogg, but Snoop Lion still has an affinity for precious pooches.

During his appearance on Thursday's Chelsea Lately, the rapper and Chelsea Handler chatted about their efforts to try and save four-legged friends at kennels.

"We're doing a project together, because we worked hard to come up with this really great dog food called Dog for Dog, and then he changed his name to Lion and that doesn't help the dog food," said Chelsea.

She continued: "But it's called Dog for Dog and we spent a lot of money, a lot of people got involved to research this human food that we can give to dogs. So humans can eat it and dogs can eat it and every time you buy a bag of this dog food, they send another bag to an animal shelter and they save dogs' lives. It's a really good cause."

"It's a great cause," said Snoop. "Because, what a lot of people don't understand is a lot of these shelters execute these dogs, not because they don't have a place or someone that wants to adopt them, it's more that they don't have food to feed them."

"This is what's great about you," Chelsea noted. "You do so many things that no one would expect you to do. You coach that little football team right? How do you do that when you're high all the time?"

"I mean, I give the kids something to look up to," replied Snoop with a smile.
