David Arquette Adopts Dog from Last Day Dog Rescue

Pin It

An acting gig for David Arquette has led to a starring role in the life of the star for one very fortunate Fido.

During the Thanksgiving weekend the actor, who had been filming the upcoming thriller Orion in Detroit, gave thanks for his new four-pawed pal Dallas, a Basset Hound who was facing his fate in a high-kill shelter before Last Day Dog Rescue intervened.

A foster-based, all-volunteer non-profit headquartered in Livonia, Michigan, Last Day Dog Rescue saves dogs who are living their final hours at kill shelters or have been abandoned, and works to prevent dogs from being sold to research facilities.

“It is astonishing to think that less than two weeks ago Dallas was on his last day in a gassing facility and now he is living a very nice lifestyle in sunny California,” Pamela Peterson, Last Day Dog Rescue President, stated in a press release.
