Olivia Munn is aware that her dogs can’t read a calendar, but the two puppies, Frankie and Chance, know exactly when the holidays are coming.
“I never thought I’d be the person spending money on the holidays for a pet…but they have stockings on Christmas and they have toys and a special cookie on Valentine’s Day “, said the actress. The Hollywood Reporter of her efforts to bring out some days, something that doesn’t seem so extravagant compared to the love she says she’s received in return from pets.
That’s why Munn didn’t flinch when asked to take on a new project as an ambassador for the Shelter Pet Project. As part of the partnership – in conjunction with the Ad Council, the Humane Society of the United States and Maddie’s Fund – the actress appears in the #AdoptPureLove PSA campaign just launched by the organization, as do the names notables Rachel Bloom and NFL star Logan Ryan. (Bloom is seen with shelter dog Wiley, while Ryan plays opposite his shelter dogs Leo and Julius.)
Munn’s spot showcases the distinct personalities of Frankie and Chance and shows the actress’ silly side around her house. In an interview with THR, Munn also opened up about how dedicated she is to giving her dogs a loving family life. She bakes treats for their dog from scratch, cooks breakfast and other meals for them, and even concocts special water for Chance to stave off vomiting, which he struggled with due to a enlarged esophagus. “I do it with alkaline and homeopathic drops, and he no longer vomits,” she admits.
Aside from personalized water, Munn, who will be the next star of the Starz series Tower, says she hopes more people will discover sanctuaries where potential owners can find the kind of pet they’re looking for. “Right now, there are millions waiting to be adopted,” Munn says. “Whatever type of dog you want, whether it’s a super chic purebred, a street dog, a hypoallergenic dog, there’s a shelter that has those dogs. Or cats. There are so many just waiting for a loving home right now. And when they’re adopted, they know they’ve been saved and they have so much gratitude in their hearts.
