Actress Kristen Bell has launched a new charity initiative with The Humane Society to help rescue animals from extreme situations, LookToTheStars.org
The name of the new project, Special Needs, came from Bell's own personal experience working with special needs animals. Her volunteer work at an animal rescue
shelter inspired her to become more involved when she met a pooch named Sadie.
Sadie had been missing most of her teeth and needed a unique operation to help reroute her ear canal through the side of her neck. Bell vowed to help animals
like Sadie, who have been through tough experiences.
"I'm obsessed with special needs animals," she told the news source. "Why? Because they're perfectly imperfect, gloriously beautiful and because they're the voiceless ones who need our help more than anyone."
Funds raised will benefit animal rescue shelters that save pets from severe conditions.
The Humane Society has been working to end animal cruelty and abuse through several campaigns and initiatives which call for more attention to be paid to our furry friends.
