Actress Elaine Hendrix Launches The Pet Matchmaker

She’s starred in The Parent Trap, Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion and Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2, and now actress Elaine Hendrix has taken on a new, real life role as The Pet Matchmaker™.

Along with a team of doggedly devoted animal experts and enthusiasts, the star will help pet parents understand the steps of the adoption experience through advice and information ranging from finding area rescue groups and shelters to the financial aspects of raising a four-legged friend.

“It’s important that people are realistic about their lifestyles when choosing an animal to adopt,” says Elaine Hendrix, The Pet Matchmaker™. “This is a new, entertaining online resource that helps people pick the pet best suited for them, and then gives them information to care for that pet their entire lives.”

Animal lovers who are already pet parents can listen to Elaine Hendrix’s radio spot “The Pet Care Minute”; find pet care advice and share stories and snapshots of furry family members or network adorable adoptables in the Community section, while animal-loving little ones can check out a children’s section filled with word games, coloring pages and articles written by canine and cat-loving kids.
