Ellen and Portia, and their super cute dogs.
Ellen and Portia are longtime supporters of animals rights. Regularly featuring pet segments on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and bringing awareness to the public about rescue animals, it’s no surprise that this celebrity couple are parents to an adorable brood of seven animals—all rescues! Ellen and Portia currently have four dogs — Wolf, Augie, Kid & Mr. Wallace Browning; Mr. Wallace Browning is their most recent rescue from Wagmor Pets in Los Angeles, CA. This handsome boy is purebred standard poodle who Ellen hopes will bring awareness to the fact that you can rescue a purebred as well. The pair also have three cats — Charlie, George, and Chairman. DeGeneres credits her love of animals to her childhood dreams of becoming a veterinarian and has said “I cannot imagine not going home to animals. They are the closest thing to God. They don’t harbor resentment. Somebody put it really well: If you hurt a dog, the dog may, years later, remember you hurt him if he sees you. But he’s not going to spend all those years planning how to hurt you the next time he sees you.” Amen!
Lady Gaga, Miss Asia
We are all gaga over Gaga — the mega talented singer, songwriter, actress and fashion extraordinaire!

This is one talented mama!

I’ve had dogs in my life, but it was when I lived in the countryside. In Paris, as in all big cities, it’s a bit more complicated. As you can imagine, I could no longer take the risk of walking a dog in the street, there’d be a riot.” Choupette became his answer and his love.

Gino Jonas lives a charmed life with his daddy Nick and mom Priyanka. While on Ellen in January, Joans admitted that Gino is now double the size and tearing up the house—but he’s too cute to get mad at, and we would have to agree. While Gino is loved to pieces by his family and many adoring fans, he does share the spotlight with his sister Diana. Double the cuteness!
Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Diana
Diana, Gino Jonas’s sister, was adopted in 2016 before Chapra married Jonas. The story goes, similar to that of Taylor Swift and Benji, Priyanka was doing a photo shoot with puppies—and you guessed it—she decided to adopt one and take her home. Diana, who at the time was not Priyanka’s only dog, stole the heart of this Bollywood beauty who had been planning to get a puppy in 2018. At the time, her dog in India, a Cocker Spaniel named Brando, was too old to travel and Priyanka wanted to bring another furry friend into her life. Unfortunately, Brando did pass away but Diana now has a new brother to love (or perhaps to be jealous of!); her brother Gino has more than double the amount of followers on the IG. While perhaps not as popular on Instagram as her brother, Diana’s 115K+ followers, is surely nothing to scoff at!

Ray designed the pet food with Isaboo’s diet in mind, which resulted in the wildly successful pet food line Nutrish by Rachael Ray. The best part of the Nutrish products (apart from being Isaboo approved!) is that a portion of the sales from every product is donated to the continued support of U.S. shelter animals through the Rachael Ray Foundation. As of 2019, the organization had donated more than $35.5 million to rescue and animal support organizations around the country.

Oprah, And ALL the Dogs!
Oprah LOVES her dogs and has often made them a part of her life publicly. Over the years, Winfrey has had over 20 dogs, some of which we fondly remember from her legendary talk show, including Sophie & Solomon. Currently, the mogul has Sadie the Cocker Spaniel, and Springer Spaniel’s Sunny & Lauren. So how did these outs come into Oprah’s life? So, as the story seems to go with many celebrities, Oprah was doing a cover shoot for her magazine in 2009 with puppies from PAWS Chicago rescue, and Sadie stole her heart. The media mogul is quoted as saying in an article posted on oprah.com in 2019, “My heart spoke to Miss Sadie, the runt of the litter. I love making the underdog a winner.” Then in 2010, as a birthday present to herself, Oprah adopted 14 week old Springer Spaniel puppies Sunny & Lauren, also from the PAWS Chicago rescue. Miss O certainly loves her dogs, and even noted in an episode of Super Soul Sundays in 2014 that “Over the years I have felt the truest, purest love—the love of God, really, I imagine that’s what God’s love feels like—is the love that comes from your dog.”
