Paws up for these celebrities for giving their pets a good home!Ian Somerhalder and girlfriend Nikki Reed are avid believers in pet adoption, among many other celebs, and they have a cute story to go along with it!
In a heartfelt Instagram post, Ian thanked Nikki for finding “the newest addition to the family,” Sohalia, at a shelter. “Unfortunately this little kid was wildly mislabeled as “feral/not friendly”, and had Nikki not gone in and opened her cage regardless, we would have never found out that she is the most loving kitty on the planet and she may have been put down. The point is this; because shelters are so understaffed, this happens more often than not. Let’s encourage the people who work at shelters and people whom make policies for shelter workers to take more time to get to know the animals that are brought in, so they can properly inform potential adopters.”
Sarah Hyland calls her 4-year-old Maltipoo, Barkley Bixby her “significant other” and told OK! Magazine she debated on adopting a friend for her pooch! That’s love! The Modern Family actress recently partnered with Swiffer and the ASPCA to encourage pet adoption, too!
