Ashley Bell, the star of the new horror thriller “The Last Exorcism Part II,” recently took some time from her busy schedule to tour the ASPCA Adoption Center in New York City. A lifelong animal lover, Ashley grew up with 11 rescued pets and is the proud pet parent of Harrison—a sweet kitty who was once abandoned on someone’s doorstep.
During her visit, Ashley just couldn’t get enough of our adorable, adoptable pets—she snuggled with a Husky named Skylar and shared kisses with Roxie, a Pit Bull puppy.
“I just love how the ASPCA provides an intermediary home and care for these rescued pets. The facility here is impeccable, and the staff provides great treatment for the animals,” says Bell.
While affectionately interacting with some seriously cute pooches, Ashley talked about the importance of families spaying and neutering their furry companions and encouraged potential parents to make adoption their first option. “Puppy mills are crowded and cruel places. Consider rescuing a purebred, but remember that [these adorable] mutts need homes, too.”
We absolutely loved having Ashley at our Adoption Center, and we hope she continues to spread her passion for pet adoption and animal welfare.
