Everyone loves a good rescue story, right? Zooey Deschanel‘s story is a great one. She was recently on “The Ellen Degeneres Show,” sharing the story of her two adopted pups, Dot and Zelda.

Deschanel explained that her boyfriend wanted to adopt a dog for her birthday. They visited a couple of shelters, but when they were at the Bill Foundation, a dog rescue in Los Angeles that pulls dogs from shelters and takes strays off the streets, Deschanel fell for Dot. But then she learned about Zelda.

Deschanel explained how, when Dot was being pulled from another shelter to come to the Bill Foundation, Zelda was discovered shivering and alone in another cage. But once the two dogs saw each other, “it was like sisters reuniting,” Deschanel said. “They started licking each other’s faces.” The Bill Foundation told Deschanel that they just couldn’t separate the sister dogs again, so instead of adopting one dog, Deschanel brought home two. She said the sisters are inseparable and often sleep side by side. “Lucky dogs and lucky you to have those two,” Degeneres said on the show.

“I am lucky,” Deschanel replied.

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
