While the actress was involved with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the pair picked up little Frank, a little pup of indeterminable breeding. While the Munn-Rodgers connection may have ended, Olivia still loves the addition.
Frank joined the couple’s other dog, Chance, a Cavalier King Charles spaniel that Munn adopted in 2014. Munn is a consummate supporter of the Adopt Don’t Shop movement, which encourages pet adoption from shelters instead of puppy mills. While Frank did have an Instagram account all his own for a while, it seems to no longer exist after the breakup between Rodgers and Munn.
Hilary Swank: Lucky, Karoo, Rumi, and Kai
Going to a breeder has never crossed Hilary Swank's mind. With eight million homeless dogs and cats on streets across the country, there's just no need. She adopted her first rescue, a black Lab and Shepherd mix named Lucky when she was only eighteen.
Then there was the Karoo, a starving, sickly Jack Russell Terrier and Corgi mix in South Africa. After that came Rumi, a Golden Retriever mix, followed by Kai, a Beagle-Terrier cross. No doubt there will be more to come as time goes on, as Swank is a lifelong animal advocate who helps out with a number of different animal organizations.
Luke Bryan: Kimmie
One of the biggest joys of adopting animals from shelters is watching them realize they don't have to live in a cage anymore. Country music star Luke Bryan knows this a little better than most since he's done foster work.
Kimmie is just one such pooch and was apparently kept in a small cage for most of the time she was with her previous owners. So far, Bryan and his wife Caroline are just fostering the dog, but from the number of pictures the family has posted, it might be the kind of situation that stretches for a good long while, much to the delight of all involved.
Anne Hathaway: Kenobi and Esmeralda
The Oscar-winning star's first adopted poochie was a handsome chocolate Labrador named Esmeralda, first appearing with the actress in 2004. The second part of the family, after husband Adam Shulman entered the picture, was a cute puppy the pair renamed Kenobi, after the classic Star Wars character.
Apparently, the puppy, who started with the name Edward, kept his eyes on the pair while they were checking out the shelter. Realizing he would be easy to train, they took Kenobi home with them. Teri Austin, president of the Beverly Hills rescue Centre where they found Kenobi, praised Hathaway's dedication to dogs and adoption.
Kristen Bell: Mr. Shakes and Lola
We all know Kristen Bell's sloth story, but this actress really loves her dogs as well. Lola is a sweet Welsh Corgi-Chow Chow mix who had been returned to her shelter by a couple of different families due to difficulty training, but Kristen saw something in her.
She described the dog as an escape artist. After that came Mr. Shakes, a Chihuahua-Welsh Corgi mix, who was nearing euthanization before Bell came to rescue him. Lola needed a friend to be around when Bell is working long hours, and Mr. Shakes was the perfect fit. There have been even more pets in the Bell household, too.
