Sweet Tweet: Mandy Moore Takes a Pet Pledge

Mandy Moore knows that sugar and spice and everything nice do not preclude puppy dog tails. With edge, a bit of mystery and a scruffy indie rock star husband, she may no longer be that bubble gum pop teen of yore — but Mandy still has that same big, sweet heart that made us all fall for her back in the day. Just ask her furball BFFs.

For today’s Sweet Tweet, we pulled just one of Mrs. Ryan Adams’ Twitter sentiments:


The animal lover (and ASPCA supporter) is referring to a pledge geared toward pet fitness and health — specifically, helping overweight animals get back in shape. Because as cute as chunky pups may be, extra fat can lead to diabetes, heart problems and poor quality of lazy life. Dogs wanna fetch, cats wanna chase the laser, ferrets wanna go nuts. Give ‘em what’s in their nature. Plus, let’s not forget that spring’s around the corner. Let your little buddies flaunt their fur-shed figures with confidence.

Click below to sign the pledge — and while you’re at it, go follow The Mandy Moore on Twitter for all kinds of sweet tweets and retweets. She recently retweeted that 13 beagles needed homes after being deserted  and a kitty who’s been waiting 800 days for a home. Heartbreaking yes, but we’re happy that Mandy is bringing awareness to her nearly 2.4 million followers — she might have inspired some of ‘em to adopt a pet. She already has us day dreaming about doggies.
