I Advocate: A Few of Diane's Favorite Things



 ...Dog Rescue Organizations
Since millions of dogs are euthanized each year, I’m a big fan of adoption, not buying a pet from a breeder. PetFinder.com has helped 17 million dogs get adopted, and it has a national adoption board with photos and info on dogs in your area. Sadly, nearly 1 million of those dogs set for euthanizing are Chihuahuas and other small dogs, in part because movies like Beverly Hills Chihuahua and celebs like Paris Hilton made people think Chihuahuas were the perfect accessory. Not true. I have two Chihuahuas (including Ginger, pictured here), and like NCIS star Pauley Perrette, I give my support to Chihuahua Rescue, a real 200-dog-bed facility that has never passed on or otherwise turned away a dog in crisis. Never. And you can reach the rescue service 24/7. You can adopt one of its adorable rescues or send money to sponsor a dog that needs medical care. (Priceless, ChihuahuaRescue.com)
