These Photos Of Celebs With Their Beautiful Fur Babies Will Melt Your Heart Because, Duh

Pets bring so much joy into a home. A lot of times parents are quick to tell you that they are not feeding or walking the newest family member. They always give in and handle the day-to-day operations of loving the animal. In the last decade alone, Latinos have accounted for more than half of the growth in animal companionship. It’s because we have bleeding hearts, though none as big as Demi Lovato’s. ????

Find out which fluffer your favorite celebrity goes to bat for.

Mariah Carey está aqui por los perros, specifically her Jack Russel, Jackson P. Muttley, who she goes literally nowhere without. Honestly, could you live with yourself if you had to leave that love nugget behind?

Bella Thorne and Tampon

That’s right. Beall Thorne decided to name her Tampon and it isn’t the weirdest name given to a pet, tbh. Someone chastised her for the name on Instagram and she responded, “Naming her tampon? When did tampon become a bad thing? When did someone buy a tampon and it didn’t come in handy?” Hard to argue that point.

Demi Lovato and Hairy-ette

Demi Lovato brought home a hairless Sphynx kitten awhile back, thinking that she wouldn’t be allergic to him because he has no hair. Wrong. Fans saw her face blow up before their very eyes and she had to return him. Everyone was devastated by the result.

But that hasn’t stopped her from loving on hypoallergenic dogs.

Lovato is very obsessed with her dogs, who are named Batman and Ella. They not only have their own children’s book about their story, but Batman even has his own Instagram account, @demisbatman.

She’s confessed that it’s her favorite breed, but more than anything, she loves watching her kids grow up with such lovebugs.

Lopez says that the dog just kind of found him, but that the two were meant for each other. He adopted lil Owen when he was just one year old, and they’ve been literally sharing pudding on the couch ever since.

Gina Rodriguez and Casper

Rodriguez rescued Casper and the two have been spotted canoodling and snuggling in bed with her boyfriend ever since. We all need a Casper. Just look at how happy that little pup has made Rodriguez. We all deserve that kind of love. #AdoptDontShop

Gisele has used her fame and wealth to give homes to countless dogs. They all live in her house. Rumor has it that her husband Tom Brady brought home a beagle named Scooby Doo without even giving her a heads up, so she returned the favor.

His name is Ruffles and he clearly needs to be carried at all times. Look at him hugging her arm. How adorable is that little face.

We could write a whole biography on Longoria’s obsesión with Jinxy, who has graced the covers of magazines with her. She dresses him in Halloween outfits, and of course he wears a bowtie on special occasions.

Latin pop star Thalía has a special place in her bright and shiny heart for Pomeranians. She let her daughter name one of them “Amorcita Love,” which just feels right.

Danny Trejo is another major activist for shelter animals. He’s posed for PSA’s that promote adoption over buying animals, and we love his soft spot for animals under a seemingly machismo exterior.

Hottie Mark Consuelos is a fan of the small, very fluffy types. Him and wife Kelly Ripa are often spotted walking their pupparoo around Los Angeles.

She brought home two bunnies a few years back and they’ve grown into much bigger guys, and very close siblings. You kind of can’t get just one bun, because two buns are better than one.

Somehow, French Bulldogs just make sense for Mario Lopez. Like, you wouldn’t have guessed they’d be his breed of choice, but it just makes sense. Perhaps it’s because they too are small, muscular and adorable.

Naya Rivera and her royal pups

Naya Rivera clearly prefers the King Charles Spaniels, and I totally get it. Look at those Lady & The Tramp style ears. I’ll brush your ears every day, Rivera perros.

Saldana is another fan of rescuing and introduced the world to Mugsy when she first adopted him back in 2012. His look hasn’t changed much. White Bat in Headlights, don’t you think?

A 10-Year-Old Girl Sent Over 1,500 Art Kits To Kids Who Are Quarantining While In Foster Care

A 10-Year-Old Girl Sent Over 1,500 Art Kits To Kids Who Are Quarantining While In Foster Care

Talk about a girl with a big heart.

It turns out, kids have no qualms about leading the example when it comes to selflessness and kindness in today’s time of uncertainty. While so many of us bemoan our lack of access to entertainment, friends, and personal care, young generations are looking to offer support where they can. Just look at this 10-year-old from Danbury, Connecticut who understands the importance of empathy, compassion, and love during this time of quarantine.

She worked on a pretty big project to make sure kids her age felt all three.

Chelsea Phaire has spent her time in quarantine sending kits to more than 1,500 children in homeless shelters and foster care homes.

Phaire explained in a recent interview with CNN that she wanted to create the kits to give children something to look forward to and feel positive about. Phaire’s art kits include paper, coloring books, markers, crayons, and colored pencils. They are being sent to schools and shelters across the country as part of an organization founded by Phaire and her parents called Chelsea’s Charity.

“Since she was seven, she was begging me and her dad to start a charity,” Candace Phaire, Phaire’s mother, told CNN. “She was so persistent, every couple of months she would ask, ‘Are we starting Chelsea’s Charity yet?’ When she was turning 10, she asked us again, and we decided it was time to go for it.”

Set to enter the 6th grader this coming fall, Phaire and her parents launched Chelsea’s Charity on her birthday in August 2019.

At the time, Phaire asked party guests to donate art supplies to the charity instead of giving her birthday gifts. Soon after her birthday party, Phaire made the decision to use all of the donations she’d been given to send out her first 40 art kits. The kits were collected and sent to a homeless shelter in New York. It wasn’t long before Phaire and her parents set up an Amazon wishlist account for the art supplies.

Before the pandemic, Phaire and her mother delivered almost 1,000 kits to kids in foster care homes, homeless shelters, women’s shelters, and schools impacted by gun violence.

At the time, Phaire and her mother traveled around to give kids their kits in person. Since the start of the pandemic, however they’ve mailed the kits. “I feel good inside knowing how happy they are when they get their art kits,” Phaire explained. “I have definitely grown as a person because of this. Now my dream is to meet every kid in the entire world and give them art. Who knows, maybe if we do that and then our kids do that, we’ll have world peace!”

Demi Lovato Opened Up To Her Former ‘Sonny With A Chance’ Castmembers About Her Eating Disorder At The Time

Time spent at home in isolation during the current coronavirus pandemic has led a lot of us to connect with friends old and new on apps like Facetime and Zoom. This has been true for celebrities as well, who have been using video calls to have virtual reunions with old cast members. A few weeks ago it was the cast of High School Musical and Victorias. Last week it was the beloved Spy Kids. Now it’s the cast of Sonny With A Chance.

The Sonny With A Chance reunion saw the shows former stars including Demi Lovato, Tiffany Thornton, and Allisyn Ashley Arm reunited.

Former cast members Matthew Scott Montgomery, Audrey Whitby, Sterling Knight, Doug Brochu, Shayne Topp, and Damien Haas also joined in on the fun and to reminisce about their old days on set. It was during this time that Lovato, thanked her former Disney Channel co-stars for their support and love while she was on the show.

At one point, Lovato thanks Thornton, who played the part of Sonny’s rival Tawni Hart on the show, for being her “biggest inspiration” after she left the cast.

“When I went away to treatment for the first time, you were my biggest inspiration coming out of it because you dealt with all of those pressures of being a woman on TV,” Demi explained, pointing to their days worrying about how they looked during fittings for the show. “It’s a shame that we wasted any energy on what we wore on set.”

Lovato also admitted during the reunion that she kept her dressing room at extremely warm temperatures because she was “underweight and freezing.”

The implications of Lovato’s words is that she was likely feeling cold and underweight because she was battling an eating disorder. Speaking about the ups and downs she experienced on the show, Lovato admitted that she “wasn’t sleeping and I was so miserable and angry too because I felt like I was being overworked.”
