A Pet Lover
Scratch that! She’s a lover of pets.
One of the ways that Hayek helps to keep her fans updated and entertained, is by sharing adorable videos and photos of her pets, whom she loves and takes good care of.
Pet rescue is one of the most preached topics in the United States, as every year, a large number of pets, especially dogs, die from various kinds of diseases or malnutrition.
Hayek is one of few celebrities who sees the relevance in preaching the importance of pet rescue and adoption.
How Many Pets Does Hayek Own?
The “Grown Ups” star has either rescued or adopted many pets including alpacas, dogs, parrots, fishes, horses and many more. Also, per “TheThings” she also owns a cat and hamster.
During an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Hayek revealed that she owned five beautiful horses, and this put the audience in a shocked state for a few seconds.
Although many wondered how the actress got to feed her pets individually, she often discloses how she takes personal care of these awesome pets. Also, she has help from time to time especially when she’s way on movie business.
Cake Loving Dogs!
Hayek is very open about her love for pets, and she shares photos of some of them whenever she can, but the award for most featured pets on her Instagram page, goes to her cute dogs.
In total, Hayek owns eight dogs, ranging from puppies to adult breeds and they are all incredible. Watch Hayek’s dogs enjoying a delicious cake with her in this YouTube video.
In 2016, the “Like A Boss” actress shared a sad news on Instagram about her 9-year-old dog, Lupe, who was shot dead by a neighbor. According to reports, when the authorities got involved, they said the act was justified because Lupe allegedly ran into the neighbor’s garage in an attack mode.
Hayek’s post on Instagram shared that that in nine whole years, Lupe had never been violent to any human or pet around the house.
Hayek’s Husband Says ‘No More Pets!’
