Jane Lynch loves dogs. She recorded a PSA for PETA about the consequences of buying a dog instead of adopting from a shelter, and asked the USA Network to air it during the Westminster Dog Show. The ad asked the question “If you buy a dog, what will you do with the shelter dog you kill?”

Lynch has put her words into action, recently adopting a rescue dog. According to the Daily Mail, Lynch has added a new dog to her family, which already included a dog and a cat named after Greta Garbo. While at a fair in Sherman Oaks, she picked out their new addition with her wife and step-daughter. They chose a Dalmation mix who they named Francis.

It looks like Glee‘s mean Sue Sylvester has a soft spot for animals in real life.

    Good for Jane! We need to encourage people to obtain their pets from shelters, rather than from breeders or pet stores. She has set an excellent example here! I hope lots of people take a cue from what Jane did, and go to a shelter to get their next dog, cat, rabbit, or whatever pet they want. They won’t be sorry!
