The question is: who isn’t happier when they have a furry friend to share their life with? Drew Barrymore, mother and animal lover, recently shared an endearing post on Instagram stating that “Happiness is having a puppy in each hand and having my hair done with #flowerhairtools” and who are we to argue?
The post features Barrymore with beautifully styled hair holding two tiny adorable puppies whilst looking ecstatic. Currently, the post has over 35,000 likes and hundreds of heartwarming comments from fellow animal lovers and fans of the star.
With all the negativity and cruel things that happen to animals in the world, it’s uplifting to see our well-loved celebrities sharing their love and appreciation of animals. Not only that, but it’s even better to learn when stars make incredible efforts to make the world a better place for humans and animals alike. Drew Barrymore is a recognized animal rights activist and humanitarian who has accomplished a lot for the well-being of animals. As an example, she frequently talks about dog and cat adoption and has accessible information on her very own talk show website.
Only a few days after her puppy post, Drew shared another image of herself cradling Tika The Iggy whom she’d previously interviewed in December 2021 and has a long-lasting friendship with. Fans of the Italian Greyhound flocked to see the quirky segment and adored the time Drew spent quizzing and chatting with the social media famous pup.
Animal Rights Activist
If you don’t know much about Drew Barrymore and her love of animals, allow us to enlighten you. Although, you don’t have to look far to see how much the movie star appreciates and supports animal well-being.
First of all, in 2016 Martha Stewart presented Barrymore with the ASPCA Compassion award which is an esteemed award for those who have made extraordinary contributions to animal welfare. During her acceptance speech, Drew openly talks about the difficulty she had writing about adopting her dog for her book Wildflower as well as the importance of rescuing animals.
It’s also no surprise that, as a pet owner, Drew does not condone cruelty to animals. Her very own cosmetic brand, FLOWER Beauty is recognized by PETA as being 100% cruelty-free and refuses to conduct or pay for testing on animals no matter where in the world it is sold.
In addition to fighting against animal testing, as mentioned previously, Drew also supports the adoption of animals. In April 2021, Drew celebrated National Pet Day on The Drew Barrymore Show by discussing pet adoption and encouraged followers, via her Instagram, to find out more about adoption using a handy link in her bio.
Following this, in August 2021, Drew celebrates International Dog Day by sharing precious pictures of her very own pooch companions. To this day, she continues to spread kindness and awareness about animal well-being and adoption through her talk show and social media accounts.
Drew And Her Animal Companions
Currently, Drew has two dogs named Lucy and Douglas as well as three cats named Fern, Peach, and Lucky. All of which live very comfortable and happy lives with Drew and her family in the US.
