Score another big one for animal shelters!
Last March, Oprah Winfrey’s beloved dog, Sophie, died of kidney failure at the age of 13. Now, almost a year later, the media mogul has adopted a new puppy from the PAWS (Pets Are Worth Saving) animal shelter in Chicago. The new addition — reported to be a female cocker spaniel (like Sophie) joins her family of two golden retrievers and another male spaniel named Soloman.
According to the source, Winfrey has been very generous to PAWS — including the sponsorship of an Oprah room at the Clybourn Avenue facility to showcase needy dogs. We congratulate her on choosing to adopt and save a life!
