Congratulations to Lena Dunham for bringing home the gold — a Golden Globe, that is. She received the award for best actress in a comedy series (“Girls,” HBO). We blogged about her adoption of Lamby just last week.
Out of curiosity, we nosed around and found that many of the winners have dogs, but only sniffed out one who, for sure, adopted a rescue dog. And the winner is … Jessica Chastain, who won a Golden Globe for her role in “Zero Dark Thirty.” She’s obviously a firm believer in pet adoption. In addition to a three-legged pooch named Chaplin, according to the U.K.’s Daily Mail, she also has two other adopted rescue pets: Radley, a Corgi mix, and Roman, a Chihuahua mix.
We love to see pet adoption trending with celebrities. Star power can really bring attention to the plight of homeless pets. The next time you write a fan letter, check if the star adopted his or her pet, then either congratulate or urge the next pet to come from a Petfinder shelter!
