American actress Jennie Garth is already a fur mom to four rescue dogs. However, when the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic struck, she felt the need to foster one more dog. This is because she knows that several animal shelters are already overpopulated. As such, the impending community lockdown will hit these shelters badly.
The Beverly Hills actress took in a chihuahua named Fauci to be her foster dog. At first, Jennie only wanted to foster the pup until everything comes back to normal. But the actress soon realized that the dog would have a better future if she adopts her.
When Fauci arrived in her new home, the dog did not immediately feel welcomed because of the presence of Jennie’s four other dogs. Jennie felt this, so she took it to herself to make the dog feel at home and beloved.
As days passed by, Jennie learned so many things about her new pet. This was also the time that she decided to take the dog for good. So, she informed the animal shelter where the dog came from that she would adopt the dog.
Everything became official when the actress successfully processed all the needed documents for Fauci’s adoption. The process was smooth sailing, and Jennie could not hide her happiness that she has another dog.
After adopting Fauci, Jennie realized the good things about adopting dogs instead of shopping one. This is why she urged her followers and other celebrities to adopt dogs from shelters because these dogs also deserve love and understanding.
In the Instagram post, the actress likewise mentioned that she would serve as the Remember Me Thursday spokesperson. This organization seeks to find homeless animals a new home, where they could be given a second chance at life. According to Jennie, she is looking forward to making a positive impact on stray animals’ lives.
