Anna Faris is opening up to explain why she is no longer caring for her dog Pete, who was found homeless and malnourished recently.
Kinder4Rescue, the animal rescue where Anna and her husband Chris Pratt adopted the dog, said that she would be fined $5,000 for breaking an adoption agreement.
“Five years ago I adopted an adorable Chihuahua named Pete, from the Kinder4Rescue Animal Rescue. Unfortunately when our son was born, we discovered that he was allergic to Pete, so I found what I thought was a loving and responsible family to care for him,” Anna said in a statement to People. “My agreement with the animal rescue required me to contact them first before allowing another family to take Pete in. I failed to do this, and for that I am deeply sorry. I now understand the dangers of giving animals away for free.”
“I can’t tell you how thrilled I am that Pete has been found and is back in the hands of Kinder4Rescue. I feared that he had been lost forever and, although he is malnourished and in need of care, it seems he is going to make a full recovery. For this, I am so deeply thankful. We appreciate everyone who has sent good wishes, thoughts and prayers for Pete. Thank you!” she added.
The dog is now back with the animal rescue, which will find a new home for him.
