Comedian, actress and writer Whitney Cummings is perhaps best known as the co-creator of the CBS series "2 Broke Girls" and creator/star of "Whitney," but this lady with a sailor's mouth has some truly choice words about how we need to do more to help the homeless dogs and cats in America's shelters.

"I'm always surprised when someone is impressed that I rescued my dogs, because quite frankly, they rescued me," Cummings said. "People look at me like I'm some hero when it's literally the least I can do. More than three million* dogs and cats die in shelters a year. That statistic is unacceptable to me, and quite frankly, embarrassing to our culture. We can do better. Shelter dogs are as beautiful, as sweet, and as loving as dogs you can buy from breeders - and as an added bonus, adoption fees are far less expensive. I support Best Friends and their work to promote shelter pet adoption because we should and we can Save Them All."

* In 2021, that number was down to around 355,000 annually.
