Actress Torrey DeVitto has a new man in her life. He’s not famous and doesn’t wear shoes, but he’s captured her heart all the same. His name is Beau and he’s a rescue dog.

Devitto said about the newest addition to her family, “There is a level of appreciation that your dog has when you adopt them… I truly believe that Beau knew that I saved him in some way,” said Torrey. “Adopting Beau totally changed my life.”

The actress shared her story on film with The Shelter Pet Project hoping that it will encourage others to adopt from shelters as well. Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of HSUS said, “We’re so grateful to Torrey for sharing her shelter pet adoption story. We hope many more animal lovers will be inspired to share their stories on Celebrate Shelter Pets Day and encourage friends to look to shelters first when adding to their pet families.”
