Denise Richards

Actress Denise Richards is one of Best Friends' most devoted supporters. Best known for her turn as a Bond girl in "The World is Not Enough" and an unforgettable cameo in "Love Actually", her recent television roles include "Blue Mountain State" and ABC Family's "Twisted." Her continued efforts on behalf of Best Friends include appearing on "Access Hollywood Live" to promote homeless animals during their pet adoption segments, and attending Lint Roller fundraising events and Super Adoptions. Behind the scenes Denise is a hands-on helper on many of our Pup My Ride program transports - often taking dogs home that are too sick to travel so that she and her two daughters could give them the extra TLC they need to send them safely on their way. Denise and her daughters even adopted one of the lucky pooches into their family.

"I believe in giving back," says Denise. "To me, the best part of success is that it gives me more to share with others, including the animals that so many of us love. My own pets have a great life. But what about all of the others out there, who are living - or dying - in homelessness? Being a Best Friends ambassador on their behalf gives me the chance to give back."
