30 Celebrities Who Have Openly Displayed Their Immense Love For Dogs (New Pics)
Other than admiring celebrities just for their talents like acting or singing, many of us tend to like those celebs that we can relate to. Who wouldn’t want to relate to Jackie Chan or Ariana Grande, am I right?
I’d say one of the most universally relatable topics is the love people have for dogs. Even Hollywood stars with super-busy lifestyles do not give up on having a dog at home and sharing precious moments spent together on social media.
I scrolled through celebrities’ Instagram and Twitter accounts and found some new adorable pictures of them with their furry best friends. If you’d like to see more dogs with famous owners, check out my previous post.

Jackie Chan, for example, has two golden retrievers that have been with him for many years. Even though both dogs are getting old now and having health problems, Jackie points out how lucky they are compared to the lonely stray dogs on the streets. Jackie wrote: “In support of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals Organization in Asia), I’d like to make an appeal to all pet lovers around the world, try adopting a pet instead of buying commercially bred animals. I hope everyone can be more compassionate towards stray dogs, stray cats, and other stray animals. This year is the year of the dog, and I’d like to take this opportunity with JJ and Jones to send you our well wishes!”
Another celebrity who is a fan of adopting dogs is George Clooney. San Gabriel Valley Humane Society thanked him and his wife in a post: “Millie was adopted by George Clooney and his wife Amal!! Millie, a Bassett hound, now has a new brother named Louie who is also a rescue! Congratulations and thank you for adopting!!”
“A couple of months ago a UHaul truck was found abandoned by the side of the road in Las Vegas. When police officers opened the truck they found over 160 Pomeranians shoved 2 to 3 in crates only big enough for one dog. They were left with no food. No water. No fresh air,” Katherine Heigl wrote about how she came to adopt her puppy. “One of them found his home with me... meet the newest member of the Kelley family Sergeant General Major Sir. Named for his commanding and in charge personality. We like to call him Sergeant Snuggles... he is not amused by this nickname.”
Drew Barrymore cares deeply about rescuing dogs as well. “This is my Douglas. He is a rescue from the San Fernando Valley. With all fires and floods and tragedy that have changed the lives of people overnight in our country, many people have pets that are family members as well. Animals need us too,” she wrote on Instagram.
