Did you hear!? Kevin Spacey has a new, furry family member!
The actor recently adopted a puppy he named Boston in honor of the city. According to The Boston Herald, Spacey spent last week visiting with patients injured in the bombing at the Boston Marathon and officers at a police station. He shared photos of his new puppy on Twitter on Saturday, and revealed the pooch’s very special name.
Thank you, Kevin, for giving Boston his forever home! Are you interested in adding a fur baby to your family? Visit our Virtual Adoption Center!
We really thought we’d heard it all when it comes to pet scams, but nothing prepared us for this story out of Argentina. Allegedly, white ferrets are being beefed up, dolled up and sold to clueless customers…as bargain-priced toy poodles!
It’s terrible if ferrets really are being given steroids and sold to people who ultimately don’t want them, but we’ve got to admit, that ferret’s blowout is pretty amazing.
This week, the animal news was filled with nice people doing great stuff for animals. We’re feeling great about humanity right now, and here’s why:
Tourists in Times Square were a little weirded out to see a zombie running after a cat, sure, but there was a good reason. A haunted house promoter in full zombie makeup rescued a cat on the loose…and the lucky kitty was reunited with his family thanks to a microchip! (New York Daily News)
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.
