Somewhere between watching House of Payne reruns on TBS and holding Madea movie marathons, I totally missed this Tyler Perry news: The man loves dogs.
It seems that a dog named Aldo changed Tyler's life. As Tyler explains in this moving essay, Aldo has quickly become his "best buddy":
"I find myself not working long hours so that I can rush home to walk him and feed him. It's so crazy! Who knew that me, Mr. Commitment Phobe, could feel like this about any living creature?"
And when Tyler visited his local humane society to adopt a pal for Aldo, he went home with three!
Not only does this man have a sense of humor, he's also looking out for the millions of animals sitting in animal shelters by making sure he adopts. After you sign up for the Tyler Perry fan club, check out these great reads by PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk to find out how you can make your own furry friends a little bit happier.

Veteran fashionista and new vlogger Kelly Cutrone recently confessed that she kills mice who make their way inside her home because she's "not Pamela Anderson."
Sure, there's only one Pamela Anderson, but we can all work toward emulating Pam's kindness and compassion, so we dashed off a note to Kelly to let her know that humane traps are available and that we're happy to send her a supply. Mice really don't want to bother you any more than you want to interact with them, and like us, they are just trying to live their lives.
Snap traps are awful, but not quite as horrific as glue traps, which are "hell on Earth" for animals who get stuck in them, who sometimes chew their own limbs off in an attempt to escape.
After she uses nonlethal means to put mice back where they belong, perhaps the sequel to Kelly's bestselling book, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside, can be called, If You Have Mice, Take Them Outside.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
