Do you need a little motivation to get out there and volunteer at one of your local animal rescue
Well, consider this. While walking a furry friend in need of a home, or dropping off a few bags of dog food, you may rub elbows with a celebrity do-gooder.
Joan Jett, a vegetarian and passionate animal rights activist, for example, recently volunteered her time (and musical talents) to benefit animals in Florida.
Jett, who's portrayed by Twilight's Kristen Stewart in the upcoming film The Runaways, participated in the 23rd Annual Celebrity Dog Wash in Juniper, Florida, last weekend.
But instead of soaping up her furry friends, she and her band, the Blackhearts, performed. Pet owners attending the event were able to enjoy the rock icon's music while their pooches got a shampoo, according to the TCPalm.com.
Proceeds from the event benefit Safe Harbor, a no-kill animal rescue facility.
Even if you don't have any best-selling records under your belt, your local animal shelter is sure to appreciate any skills or time that you can donate to their cause.
