Richards talked about the importance of adoption while holding Rascal, the first pup to be getting his television debut.
The star said, “I think it’s important for people to know there’s so many beautiful dogs. You can get full bred, you can get puppies, you can get mix, anything from shelters and I think it’s important to really push adoption instead of buying from a pet store or breeder.”
When asked how many dogs Denise has at home, she said it varies. Turns out the actress and reality star also fosters dogs while they search for a home!
If anyone is interested, Rascal is a year old Chihuahua mix, great with kids and other dogs. You can find out more info on Best Friends Animal Society’s website.
