Carrie Ann Inaba Helps Shelter Cats via New Web Show

Talk about having purrfect moves.

“Dancing with the Stars” judge Carrie Ann Inaba made the switch to a vegetarian diet a few months ago, and now the star is taking her appreciation for animals even further, with a new venture aimed at increasing shelter cat adoptions.

Inaba has created a web show called “Crib Cats” that will air on Petsami’s YouTube channel, starting in March. The series will feature adoptable shelter cats handpicked by Inaba, who hopes to reduce the overall number of cats in shelters.

A lifelong animal lover, Inaba’s desire to help kitties find homes stems from the loss of her beloved cat Shadow, whose death ignited a passion for saving other felines. “His passing was a catalyst. He was my best friend and had been through so much with me. After losing him, it made me realize that it’s time to get involved,” she says.

For Inaba, helping shelter pets is serious business. She and fiancé Jesse Sloan have attempted to foster a number of animals, but each attempt ended as a full adoption. They now have six feline companions (Squeaker, Taz, Zeus, Mia, Bubble and Miley), as well as an eight-year-old boxer named Cookie.

So why the commitment to pet adoption? According to Inaba, it’s because pet rescue has “made the biggest difference in my life. I go to bed crying sometimes, because you can’t save them all, but it’s also so uplifting because you can go to bed knowing you did something. We try, and I feel good about that.”

Inaba has partnered with the Best Friends Animal Society and PETA in the past, and has more animal-friendly ventures on the horizon. In May, she’ll host the Humane Society’s Genesis Awards, which will air on Animal Planet. And when she and Sloan tie the knot later this year, their pets will be part of the ceremony. She says, “They’re so much a part of our family that they have to be involved.”

I’m rating these steps a 10.0.
