At 25 years old, this popular singer and actress, who held the record for most liked photo on Instagram ever, wants her fans to know about a part of her life that is very special to her. No it’s not her famous boyfriends or bff Taylor Swift, but her love for rescuing dogs! Like, many, many dogs!

Some may think that because she is famous and rich, she can easily afford to pay thousands of dollars for a dog but she chooses another, very special route, which is to rescue dogs. She says it makes sense to get a rescue dog since there are so many in need of a lovable home.  Makes sense to us!

Wallace came from a shelter and had parvo, a very contagious viral illness that affects dogs, and was extremely sick when he was adopted. Selena says he is very smart and athletic and enjoys playing fetch with a tennis ball. Selena knows not to give up on an animal!

2. Fina

Fina was found by Selena’s mom in her parking lot. When she found her, Fina was extremely skinny and recovered fast after taken to the vet. She was also full of fleas and ticks. Poor dog, but thankfully she was rescued and given the home she deserved.

Selena says Fina is a total “diva” because she won’t go to bed without her pillow and blanket. 

3. Chazz

This beautiful labrador retriever was abandoned when his owners moved. He was taken to a nearby shelter by Selena’s stepfather. After approximately 10 days, the shelter called and shaid that Willie was going to be euthanized. Selena said she wasn’t going to allow this and adopted Willie. She says he is gentle and very loveable.

Other than adopting a lot of rescue doggos, Selena Gomez invests her time and money with the @WeMovement. WE is an organization that empowers youth to change the world. Selena hosted this year’s event!

When she’s not adopting doggies in need or singing or acting, she’s spending time with the Weeknd AKA Abel. Selena’s SO’s are goals, TBH.
