12 Awesome Celeb Pet Owners (And Their Pets!) for Responsible Pet Owner Month
February is Responsible Pet Owner Month, so here are 12 fabulous celeb pet owners. Meow!
Awards season, Black History Month, Valentine’s Day, Heart Health Month… man, February is just chalk full of events, isn’t it? So here’s another one for you: It’s Responsible Pet Owner Month! In honor of the occasion, we’ve rounded up 12 of our favorite celebrity pet owners and their furry (and feathered, and hooved) friends. Meow! Woof! Caw!
1. Ryan Gosling and George
Pop quiz: Who’s the love of Ryan Gosling’s life? No, it’s not Eva Mendes—it’s his big shaggy dog, George. We’re tremendously impressed that Ryan can carry a pooch that big.
2. Courtney Cox and Harley
3. Ashley Judd and Rodesia
Ashley Judd became the godparent of an unusual pet in October: A Lippizan horse named Rodesia. Here they are laughing together in Goring, Austria.
4. Hugh Jackman and Peaches
This little French bulldog became the source of many an “awwwww!” when pictures began surfacing of Hugh Jackman walking (and sometimes cuddling) her on the streets of New York. All together now: Awwwww!
5. Taylor Swift and Meredith
Taylor Swift already has two Dobermans named Bug and Baby, but apparently that wasn’t enough for her, animal lover that she is– because in November, she added this adorable little kitten to her menagerie. Meredith, who is named for the character Meredith Grey of Grey’s Anatomy, is a Scottish Fold cat, a rare breed that can cost up to a whopping $1,000.
6. Reese Witherspoon, Honky, and Tonky
Reese Witherspoon introduced her pet donkeys, Honky and Tonky, on Ellen back in December of 2010. She says they’re really docile sweet, though unfortunately not everyone agrees; according to Us Weekly, they’re a little loud for the neighbors’ taste. However, given that Reese also has two pigs, three goats, 20 chickens, three dogs, and a horse, perhaps they shouldn’t be so surprised that a couple of donkeys have been added to the mix.
More awesome celebs and their pets, including Jake Gyllenhaal’s dogs and Elizabeth Hurley’s parrot, up next!
