Pamela Anderson Adopts Dogs

Pamela Anderson has adopted two dogs.

The former 'Baywatch' babe - who is the honorary chairman of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) - was left upset after discovering around 50 pooches were abandoned by their owners following the recent BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico so has given two of them a home.

Pamela - who has two sons, Brandon, 13, and Dylan, 11, from her marriage to ex-husband Tommy Lee - said: "My son was hoping we could take all 50.

"People can't afford to feed their families, so the family member that gets left behind and has to go is the pet."

The blonde actress has named her two new pets - which have been identified as Chihuahua mixes - in honour of fellow actresses Gina Lollobrigida and Brigitte Bardot.

On Monday (02.08.10), the dogs were paraded in New Orleans - which was badly affected by the April 20 rig explosion, along with the surrounding areas - in the hope of finding them new owners.

Bridgette Verdin of the Humane Society of Louisiana, which is working with PETA and several New Orleans area shelters to find homes for the dogs, said: "We couldn't find homes for all the dogs that were being surrendered before the spill."
