Celebrities Who Opted Out Of Buying Pets And Rescued Their Four-Legged BFFs Instead

Having a pet is one of life’s treats. They don’t require much, and they return your love tenfold. You’ve probably seen photos of your favorite celebrity out and about with their dog, or read an Instagram post about their cute cat. Animals are the ultimate pleasure, but you can feel even better about having one if you rescue it. While some head to the store or breeder to buy their future best friend, some take the other route and become rescuers. Celebrities such as Olivia Wilde and Chris Evans fall into the latter category.

Cooper To The Rescue

“I lucked out, I got two great rescues…I’m sort of a hybrid of both my dogs,” Bradley Cooper told People Pets. “Samson is stoic and makes me earn it, and Charlotte loves me undyingly. They’re my kids.”

Samson is the name of the German Shorthaired Pointer that he luckily saved. Cooper found him in a kill shelter and took action. When Cooper saw Charlotte at an adoption drive, he fell in love right away. Now he has two doggo kids!
