snipshot_e4dt8cxd48u.jpgFew things are as precious as the bond between celebrities and their animals, so when it comes to helping mistreated animals, more than a few Hollywood A-Listers step up to the plate.  Dogs Deserve Better, a non-profit organization dedicated to freeing dogs that are permanently chained and mistreated has recruited some of the most elite pooches and their owners including Johnny Depp, Charlize Theron, and Elizabeth Taylor. The celebrities will be donating items for the upcoming “Celebrity Collars For Dollars” auction, starting June 23rd. Bidders will have the chance to buy pre-used dog collars belonging to the canine friends of celebrities such as Robin Williams, who has donated three collars from his pets Gabby and MabelMae and Daisy Fuentes’ dogs Alfie and Rita.

Dolly Parton, Candice Bergen, Bill Maher and Martha Stewart have also donated items including autographed pictures and books all to support the cause.  Online bidding will run for 10 days, finishing on July 3rd, and can be accessed through www.dogsdeservebetter.org.

Thanks Linton!
