Celebrity Anna Faris is speaking out after a dog that she adopted five years ago was recently found malnourished, and wandering on the street. According to Tuesday’s publication of People, Faris has acknowledged that she adopted the now five-year-old Chihuahua, named “Pete,”years ago from the Los Angeles based rescue agency, Kinder4rescue, but admitted that she gave Pete away.

Faris explained, “Unfortunately when our son was born, we discovered that he was allergic to Pete, so I found what I thought was a loving and responsible family to care for him.” Faris knows that she was supposed to notify the rescue agency that she wanted to rehome the dog, but she failed to do so and she now regrets that decision.

Faris thought that the family she gave Pete to was responsible and loving…she now sees that she made a mistake, and admitted that giving a pet away for free can be dangerous. Pete is currently in the care of Kinder4rescue.

    Stupid, stupid, stupid. What the HELL does she think those agreements are for? I wish there were a way for rescues to put large fines or even jail time for IDIOTS who give their adopted pets away like this when they’ve signed a binding agreement, because this happens way too often.

    I get so tired of hearing about people giving up their pets because of a newborn baby having allergies. THIS IS A REDICULOUS REASON. My children have allergies and we have NEVER had to give up a pet because of the allergies. Disgusting!

      There are SO many options – a dog that small is easy to bathe and you can get pet shampoo that is formulated specifically to reduce allergens. Not to mention, children raised with animals have less allergic issues later in life. This really gets me angry.

    RIDICULOUS UNACCEPTABLE EXCUSE. -> PENALIZE HER FINANCIALLY. The funds should go to care for this adorable little dog until a loving forever home is found.

    ALLERGIC -> Her child is allergic? That is a lame excuse used by too many people. Owners should be required to PROVE THE FAMILY MEMBER IS ALLERGIC. Most of the time, this is a SAD EXCUSE FOR PEOPLE TO DUMP the pet responsibility (dog) for the new responsibility (child). This also cheats the child of growing up with a loving family pet. PATHETIC!

      I grew up with a min of 2cats and a dog… was “deathly” allergic to the cats and highly allergic to the dog.. my mom was told get rid of the pets.. she said No.. I have 6 cats and a dog and I’m not dead yet..

      This answer hits it right on the head, hit her in her pocketbook. She signed a legal document and is responsible to abide by it regardless what goes on in her life. It sounds like a lot of bullshit! At the very least the dog should have been returned to the rescue that cared for him. I have serious doubts about adoption to her at all. Stand by your guns, celebrities are just people!!!!

    You NEVER give an animal away for free, Anna! 99% of people don’t VALUE what they get for free…especially pets! I hope Anna remembers who she gave Pete to, so that they can be charged with animal cruelty, animal abandonment, or SOMETHING. ?

    The old “the baby is allergic” excuse. I just saw a list of Hypoallergenic Dog Breeds and the Chihuahua is on that list. My Daughter was allergic to pet dander and yet we had cats and dogs while she was growing up. Her excuse is bogus, she didn’t do right by poor Pete and she deserves any fine that is leveled!

    We had Great Danes for 27 years. We raised three children with these dogs. Not once, did we EVER think of getting rid of our dogs. They were an integral part of the family. This “story” is just that…..a story. Would love the true details.

  7. Tedd Lewis says:

    ..ok so supposedly she gave the dog to who, no one has mentioned the party who assumed responsibility for the care of this dog, why isn’t anyone looking for them too, they need to be held accountable for what happened to this dog & the actress Faris too, make them both pay for this abuse!
