Tyler Perry Goes to the Dogs

Written by PETA | May 13, 2010

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.

    Now he needs to be educated on not using fur in his movies! If the coats are fake then I stand corrected but if not STOP using real FUR!

    I know how Mr Perry feels. I have two dogs that I love as if they were my own children. I find myself avoiding doing many things just because I want to be the one taking care of them. I don’t trust just anyone with them I would be very upset if I found out they were mistreated. Animals are much more special then many people think. They are very intelligent and have huge hearts.

    We need to stop them from skinning cats and dogs alive in China. Go to and just watch some of that stuff. It is terrible.
