Tyler Perry Goes to the Dogs

Published by PETA.

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.
