I've gotten great feedback on actors and actresses who love animals. But doesn't anyone know of any particular sports players who are passionate about animals? Singers also. Thanks in advance.

PETA uses celebrities in their ads and includes sport heroes and muscians. If you follow swimming then you probably know that Michael Phelps loves dogs.

the ultimate answer is Tony Larussa. Not only does he like animals he created the Animal Rescue Foundation in Walnut Creek, California. The story goes that he was smitten by a little kitten who ran out onto the ball field during a game. Never had a pet before but couldn't part with the little fellow. Now has a household full of pets and does all kinds of great things to support animal welfare.

I've visited their facility and it is amazing!!! Friendly staff, incredible physical setup and they do great things in the community. Classrooms!! omg, they have an extensive community outreach to people young and old. i'd love for our rescue to have the such a facility!

you can check out the programs there at www.arf.net. well worth your time!

bonus for you - if you visit the site there's a celebrity calendar area that shows several celebrities with their pets.

Since Nascar is a sport. I do know many of the drivers are animal lovers but Ryan Newman takes the cake in this area. He and his wife rescued thousands of animals from Katrina.
