Denise Richards Helps Hurricane Efforts, Adopts Dog

Denise Richards has often said she’s like a magnet for stray animals, and she can’t help but give in when she sees one in need.

When the 41-year old actress went to the North Shore Animal League America to help out after they were bombarded with stray animals after the hurricane, she immediately found a black Labrador puppy–or maybe the puppy found her–and adopted her before the day was over.

“Denise Richards visited North Shore Animal League America headquarters yesterday to provide vital help in spreading the word about our disaster relief efforts and encouraging adoptions. During their visit Denise and her family fell in love with Tara the Labrador Mutt-i-gree puppy and welcomed her into their home!” the organization wrote on their Facebook page.

The Animal League is known as the world’s largest no-kill animal shelter, and after Hurricane Sandy ravaged the Eastern part of the U.S., the shelter was overrun with pets which had either been lost or abandoned in the aftermath. They have been big supporters of the victims of the storm, providing cat and dog food to those who were displaced due to flooding or fire.

    That’s a bit harsh.

    I’m more interested in the volunteering other celebities do by getting down and dirty helping the storm victims. Can’t recall
    who I saw lifting boxes of food and supplies and this rings better.

      To Bobo: You low level jackass. STFU. Keep your ignorant cavemanasslike flapping yaw shut so the world doesn’t have to read through your compassionateless crap. You are gonna be quite surprised as to what happens when you cross over. KARMA is a biatch…just like you.

    The only reason we saw this was because someone thought it interesting. We don’t know how much money she may have donated, as with other celebrities who have given time and money to help in this and other causes. Pauley Perette, for example, supports some 30 different charities but we never hear what those 30 charities are unless someone else points them out. I follow her on Twitter and only know of one or two.
