Hillary Swank Surprises All By Fostering Puppies Left At Animal Shelter

Two gorgeous golden retriever pups recently found a home with none other than actress Hillary Swank.

Two gorgeous golden retriever pups recently found a home with none other than actress Hillary Swank. And now, they did not cost a million dollars.

Named Skully and Mulder after the X-Files television show, the pups were taken in by Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue in West Virginia. As GoodNewsNetwork reports, the organization works hard to find foster homes for shelter animals so they might be adopted. When the young dogs arrived at the shelter, the staff wasn’t sure who would claim them.

After posting a photo and a description of the puppies to social media, the staff at Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue were surprised to receive a message from Hillary Swank. With a bit of coordination, the shelter was able to deliver Skully and Mulder to the 42-year-old in Beverly Hills.

Reportedly, Swank and the two puppies have been having a grand time in California. Swank plans on keeping one of the puppies and keeping the other until the right home is found. Though it’s hard to say “goodbye” to an animal one has cared for, Swank says it has been an enriching experience overall.

“Fostering not only saves lives and allows more room for other animals in the shelter until they too find a foster or forever home, but it can also be an important transition to finding forever homes,” Swank wrote on Instagram. “The grateful heartfelt love I receive from dogs when fostering is life-changing, not only for the dog, but for me.”

Join #AcademyAward winner @hilaryswank and apply to #foster! #linkinbio www.louieslegacy.org/foster Have you been thinking about #fostering or #adopting a needy pet? Maybe it would help to know that the newest #foster parent to join the #louieslegacy team is Academy Award winner #HilarySwank! When we posted two urgent dogs in need of help at one of our partner #shelters, she decided it was time to step in and become a #fosterparent to a needy animal! Hilary is no stranger to #animalwelfare and has been following #LouiesLegacy for some time! "I have followed you and admired your work for the rights of animals for a long time now," she said when applying. We are so #grateful and #humbled that she took notice of the work that our staff and #volunteers do each and every day! Hilary's message to the community is this: "There are so many ways to help an #animal in need. One is to always #adopt and don't shop! Two is to go into shelters and volunteer your time to walk and love on the animals, reminding them how special they are so they have hope they won't be forgotten and will eventually find their #forever homes! The third is to #foster! If you can't bring a #rescue into your home forever, think about #fostering. #Fostering not only saves lives and allows more room for other animals in the #shelter until they too find a foster or forever home, but it can also be an important transition to finding forever homes. The grateful heartfelt love I receive from #dogs when fostering is life-changing, not only for the dog, but for me." We urge you to apply to #foster a pet whose only chance may be the moment you took to make the choice to say "yes"– that his or her life is worth it. Even with the tireless work of all of our fosters and volunteers in 8 states, there are #heartbreaking many for whom #rescue never comes. Apply online to foster at www.louieslegacy.org/foster and help us tell as many #pets as possible that their lives are worth it! Tomorrow is a new day! #HilarySwank did, and so can you!
