Comedian/actress/writer and Best Friends celebrity ambassador Whitney Cummings popped in to visit our Pet Adoption Center in Salt Lake City on a busy Saturday in March, and she brought along a friend -- supermodel Kate Upton! The two spent some quality time with the dogs and cats, blanketing social media and sharing their adorable photos and videos with more than 10 million total followers.
As if that weren't enough, a few hours later actress Jennifer Coolidge stopped by for a quick visit, returning a short time later with coffee for Best Friends staff and volunteers. She also left a generous gift card so everyone could have coffee on her for the rest of the week! (By the time we finished thanking her, there was no time for a photo.)
While it may be a regular occurrence for our Los Angeles team, the Utah program facilities aren't typically visited by celebrity supporters. The staff had fun hosting them, even for a short visit, and reported that all three women were gracious and kind, and truly looking to do all they can for the animals.
