In addition to lending his support for LGBTQ youth and preservation of the environment, Ian Somerhalder has taken to Twitter to advocate for homeless animals.

A passionate animal advocate who founded the Ian Somerhalder Foundation on his 32nd birthday, Somerhalder is no stranger to making his affection for rescued animals known. “My first dog was an amazing stray. A black lab from the bayou of LA. Literally,” he tweeted on September 2012.

But when “The Vampire Diaries” heartthrob found out about Gwinn and Rowdy, brother-sister Chow mixes, who have been in a Pearland, Texas kennel for over six years, he took to his Twitter to rustle up some adoption attention.

With 1,400+ retweets and counting, things are looking up for the duo, who are sponsored by Forgotten Pet Advocates.

Not able to adopt these cuties but still want to support animals in-need? Somerhalder’s Foundation is currently fundraising to open a Sanctuary that will pair “misunderstood and discarded animals” with youth victimized by bullying to show that together they “can be unstoppable.” You can support these efforts here.
