Two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank adopted both of her lovable pooches from an animal rescue
shelter while on the set of a movie in South Africa, and she couldn't be happier to have them in her life, PeoplePets.com
Swank's love for animals doesn't just rest with her two dogs Rumi and Karoo - she also has two adopted parrots, Angel and Seuss.
"Animals just make my life so much richer," she told the news source. "It wouldn't be the same without my dogs."
Swank loves all animals, but snakes are where she draws the line. If she were to adopt another pet, she may consider a horse, but only if she has the land.
Many celebrities are huge animal lovers, with scores of them choosing to rescue creatures from local shelters. Their desire to help animals
and provide them with loving homes may serve as an inspiration to others.
The Humane Society of the United States estimates that between six and eight million cats and dogs are cared for my rescue shelters every year.
