In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, plenty of celebs are making an effort to help those impacted by the storm. Denise Richards has now added her own name to the long list of philanthropists. The star of Denise Richards: It’s Complicated may not have made a huge monetary donation a la Taylor Swift, but her contribution to the recovery effort is touching nonetheless.
Denise Richards’ love for helping others isn’t limited to humans! The celeb recently decided to try her hand at animal philanthropy, adopting an adorable Black Labrador puppy from an area terribly damaged by Hurricane Sandy. Initially, Denise had just been planning to visit the shelter to help out, but she just couldn’t resist the sad eyes of the little Black Lab.
North Shore Animal League America, the organization from which she adopted her puppy, posted the following message: “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 North Shore Animal League of America is the largest no-kill animal shelter in the devastated area and, predictably, found itself overflowing with homeless animals in the aftermath of the storm. With so many animals to take care of, it’s been a struggle for the organization to keep all its furry residents fed, watered and well cared for. Good thing there’s kind souls such as Denise Richards willing to lend a helping hand!
