They say, “Dogs think they’re people,” and Hayden Panettiere has proof of that!

Because looking at pictures of cute animals will never get boring, Hayden shared this pic on Twitter:

Hayden doesn’t say whose dog it is, but she probably isn’t just sharing it because it’s a cute pic — it probably also has something to do with what a great animal lover and activist she is. Before she shared on Twitter a pic of a rabbit she’d saved, and that was another aww-inspiring image. But Hayden especially has her heart set on helping wild animals, and she has a special spot for sea life.

She’s super-close to The Whaleman Foundation, where she works as a spokesperson. The release of “Blackfish” has more people thinking and talking about the rights of dolphins and whales, and Hayden’s sure to love that.

Even without being a famous actress or spokesperson for an organization, you can still make a diff for animals. You can get involved with groups that help sea life, like The Whaleman Foundation or Oceana, or you can help companion animals through places like the Humane Society of the United States and ASPCA. (And check out our Sweet Tweet today for a totally unique way to help animals — through fruitcake!) Helping animals can also include you adopting a pet or giving lots of love to the pet you already have. And if you’you’ve got a happy pet who knows how to use an armrest, you’ve gotta show us — ’cause the internet will never have enough happy pet pics.
