Australian House Husbands star Hugh Sheridan is encouraging everyone to be a hero for animals and adopt a companion from a shelter.
He has found love on the streets of Hollywood. So, who’s the lucky lady? His cat, Addie, of course!
Not every cat is as lucky as Addie. Every year, hundreds of thousands of puppies and kittens are born in unwanted litters in Australia. Many are abandoned on the streets, like Addie, or left to languish in shelters. As a result, around 200,000 healthy dogs and cats are euthanised each year, simply for lack of good homes.
Sheridan was on his way to an acting class when he saw a tiny kitten who had been dumped on the street in a plastic bag and left for dead. He took her in and named her Addie, after his Grandmother and also as a homage to his home town, Adelaide. 💖🇦🇺
Anyone that’s planning on buying an animal, my message to them would just be to go and check shelters first to make sure that there’s not an animal there that’s waiting and praying that someone will come and pick them up,” says Sheridan.
