Ellen DeGeneres

There are dozens of reasons to love Ellen DeGeneres, not the least of which is the fact that she makes pet care and animal rights issues a regular element of her television show. Initiatives to find animals loving homes appear regularly on the Ellen website, and in 2008, she became part owner of Halo, a world-renowned holistic pet care products company.

Its great that these people lend their voices and time to animals in need. Ellen is doing it all the time and has adopted one or two dogs. I forget their names tho

While I appreciate the efforts of these "celebrities" I realize that something is terribly wrong ... with me? I don't know any of the seven! Am I missing out on something?

Please ...there are a lot of dogs suffering horribly in Ragley,Louisiana. Hoarding issue? Many dogs are locked together in non-ventilated trailers, more are locked up together in large cages...NO FOOD,NO WATER AND OBVIOUSLY...NO CARE!!!!!The Sheriff Ricky Moses 337-463-3281 IS NOT DEALING WITH THE SITUATION. THEIR ANIMAL CONTROL SAW THIS, TOOK TWO PUPPIES AND LEFT ALL THE OTHERS AT THIS HORRIBLE PLACE. No one seems to be coming to their rescue. There was a video taken for proof, then posted it on youtube-of course they took it video, no proof! The video and who took it, have no idea what happened to the person filming...Facebook Orange For Animal Cruelty Tragic Hoarding Issue....Rural area, does not mean these dogs deserve to die. Is anyone out there going to let that area know, that it is NOT OKAY for these dogs to die?

It's good to see that they use their celebrity status to speak up for the voiceless. Many thanks!
