Shelter Dog Named Monte Becomes Disney's New Star In Upcoming 'Lady and the Tramp'

Way to go, Monte! They say every dog has it's day and that day is here for one shelter pup from Phoenix, Arizona!

Monte is a 2-year-old terrier mix. was rescued from the Animal Services Center of the Mesilla Valley in Las Cruces, New Mexico, by HALO Animal Rescue in April 2018. HALO had be considered his 'home,' until he got adopted. According to the staff at the HALO shelter, Monte is described as super friendly, loves to greet people, give kisses, and loves attention. He also already knew how to sit and walks well on a leash. 

Sounds like star quality to us! 

When the animal trainers from Hollywood came scouting, looking for rescue dogs to cast in their film, Monte was an obvious choice. Monte was adopted by the trainers, and it's noted that he is leading a happy and normal life. 

And it gets even better -- Disney has also added that all the rescue dogs featured in the film found furever homes when production ended! 

You can stream "Lady and the Tramp" and catch Monte's performance on November 12th, on Disney's new streaming service

This New 'Grown-Ass Adult' Dog Adoption Campaign Is Straight Fire

It's easy to convince people to adopt a puppy, like adopting people, people mostly want babies. However, puppies are the first to go at the shelters and rescues, and the poor adult and senior dogs are left there. And those dogs have just as much love inside. 

Animal Protective Association of Missouri (APA) had just come out with a recent, and brilliant, ad campaign. The posters and the hashtags #grownassadult and #adoptadult is educating people about the many advantages of adopting grown-up dogs! 

And there are so many advantages! If you're thinking about adopting a dog, we hope this campaign sticks with you and you consider adopting an adult.

"Get a dog who gets you. Adopt adult."

Two Young Sisters Create Haiku Book All About Cats In Order To Help The Cats At Their Local Shelter

These young ladies are incredible! Ella, 10-years-old, and her younger sister Erin, 6-years-old, volunteer weekly at Robyn's Nest Animal Rescue in Germantown, Ohio. 

Their mother Emily had this to say about her extraordinary daughters, "my daughters are constantly thinking of ideas to help raise money since the shelter is pretty small (currently 10 cats, 3 dogs (plus 1 in foster who just had 13 babies), 2 guinea pigs). Ella, my 10-year-old, orchestrated a shoe drive in her classroom as the shelter collects shoes for a non-profit, and once they get a certain amount, the non-profit makes a donation. She also started making homemade slime to sell on Etsy to raise money (ebslimeshoppe)."  

When a tiny tornado ripped through their little town last year it completely damaging their animal shelter. Thankfully, all the animals were safe but all needed fostering. When the shelter re-opened and supplies arrived, the young girls helped sort through the containers and helped set the shelter back up! 

Then they came up with a beautiful idea to create a haiku ebook, all about cats. The e-book can be found here on Amazon, and all proceeds go towards Robyn's Nest Animal Rescue.

Thank you, Emily, Ella & Erin, for all that you do for the animal community! 

All animals pictured below are available for adoption at the Robyn's Nest Animal Rescue:

The most difficult part of making this decision was because she was worried about her loves and to make matters worse, her family was unable, and unwilling, to take the cats in.
