Love Leo Rescue is a non-profit dog rescue in the Santa Monica neighborhood of Los Angeles that has volunteers who foster animals until people adopt them permanently
‘Fig is home! Thank you @jonahhill for choosing to #adoptnotshop. All the cool kids are doing it!!’ the shelter wrote in the caption.
‘This beautiful, extra cuddly, three-year-old pit bull was abandoned at a rural shelter during the holiday season. We are so happy she landed with where she did. Clearly it’s a love connection.’

The rescue went on to thank the other organizations and people that helped recover, transport and foster the good looking pooch: ‘It truly does take a village.’
‘Every shelter dog that’s adopted puts the squeeze on breeders (or greeders as we call them). We’re loving this adoption story and are so grateful we could be part of her journey. Happy life!’
