Denise Richards Adopts a Puppy While Doing Sandy Relief Work

When Denise Richards volunteered to promote disaster relief efforts after Superstorm Sandy, we're guessing she had no idea the gig would come with a new puppy! According to the North Shore Animal League, Richards visited the Long Island shelter to champion adoptions and ask for help for animals affected by Sandy. The actress is well known for her animal welfare work.

The shelter wrote on its Facebook page: "During their visit, Denise and her family fell in love with Tara the Labrador Mutt-i-gree puppy and welcomed her into their home!"

If helping with relief efforts means we get to cuddle with adorable puppies like Tara, sign us up!
