Selena Gomez, Ryan Gosling, Sandra Bullock

Hollywood's biggest stars have plenty of resources to find the perfect pet.

No matter the cost, celebrities can pick their ideal breed and live happily ever after with their four-legged friend.

But instead of fancy puppy stores, many of our favorite stars are choosing to adopt dogs through local shelters and rescue organizations. Yes, we can see the tails wagging already.

A-list actors like Ryan Gosling and Ryan Reynolds have graciously adopted new family members while Sandra Bullock and Jessica Chastain have rescued animals with less than four paws to bring into their homes.

Others like Zooey Deschanel and Ashley Greene can't help but adopt two dogs at once.

Three months after losing her fox terrier in a tragic apartment fire, the Twilight beauty insisted on raising not one, but two baby pups at the same time.

"Today felt like a great day to rescue a puppy…or two!" the actress wrote on Instagram. "I couldn't take a brother without her sister! #spotrescue #Love #Life #theosnewfam."

In honor of National Dog Day, we're taking a look at celebrities who've done great things with their adopted four-legged friends.
