Carrie Ann Inaba

When she's not busy judging celebrity contestants on "Dancing With the Stars," dancer, choreographer, actress and producer Carrie Ann Inaba spends her time advocating on behalf of homeless pets. A Best Friends supporter for several years and founder of the Carrie Ann Inaba Animal Project, she appeared on the one-year anniversary of our monthly pet adoption segments on "Access Hollywood Live" to promote three adorable Best Friends dogs. Carrie Ann is also a supporter of our Guardian Angel program, and has toured the Best Friends Pet Adoption and Spay/Neuter Center in Los Angeles - where she even adopted a dog from us.

"I love all animals and want them to be treated with respect and accorded the dignity that they deserve," says Carrie Ann. "The fact that millions of homeless pets are dying in our nation's shelters is distressing and unacceptable. We can and must do better and Best Friends leadership in this area is part of what gives me hope for a better world as we move into the next decade."
