Shannon Elizabeth Passionate About Pets

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Pets in need of homes: That’s what gets the fur flying with actress Shannon Elizabeth.

The American Pie star, who’s the head of her own non-profit organization Animal Avengers, says her passion for pets is, in her words, “something I was born with.”

The 32-year-old Elizabeth says when she was young she wasn’t allowed to have many pets, but she’s made up for lost time. These days, she has six dogs, all mixed breeds.

She loves all of God’s creatures so much that she started her organization to find homes for animals like one handicapped dog that uses a wheel chair to get around because it lost its hind legs, and its owner didn’t feel they could take care of it anymore.

While Elizabeth is passionate about pooches and tabbys, she’s also passionate about life. As she puts it, “I think it’s important to live everyday to its fullest because we never know what tomorrow may bring.”
