Charlize Theron is a devoted dog lover, which is perhaps why she chooses to saves lives at the local shelter instead of frequenting pet shops.

The actress recently lost eight of her companions within a span of two and a half years. The oldest pooch was 16. After the deaths, and when she thought she would be filming in Australia, Theron decided to take a break from sharing her home her canine family. But, that didn’t last long.

The Oscar winner said to Ellen Degeneres, one of the world’s biggest animal lovers, “I went for a year without having dogs because I thought I was gonna go and make this film (Mad Max) in Australia… but the movie kept pushing and my mom just finally said, ‘What are you doing? You’re such a dog lover… I hate coming over here (to your house), everything’s so clean, and it’s, like, quiet.’ And so I just recently adopted two rescue dogs.”

Using her appearance on Ellen to advocate for homeless animals, Theron continued, “People don’t realize you can actually go and specifically adopt exactly what you want. There are so many dogs available. It just kills me when people run to pet stores. This is the season to adopt.”

The ASPCA, HSUS and Best Friends Animal Society agree. They have even created a petition asking the public to boycott pet stores that sell animals this season.

What you can do if live exports disturb you

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
