Christie Brinkley wins 2013’s ‘Pet Hero’

christie brinkley

Model Christie Brinkley has long been an advocate for animal rights. Having been a vegetarian for most of her life, Brinkley has a passion for protecting all animals. The model has advocated against horse slaughter, brought light to toxic environmental conditions, renounced the abuse of animals used for cosmetic testing, and has now been recognised for her efforts, receiving the 2013 Pet Hero award from The Pet Philanthropy Circle.

While at the event Christie proceeded to take pictures with a Golden Retriever puppy, who despite feeling a little sleepy from all the action, looked absolutely adorable. Brinkley clearly agreed, seen in numerous photos cuddling the pup close while she beamed for the cameras.

We secretly hope that Christie adopted her new furry friend, they seem like a match made in heaven! If you’ve recently met your puppy match, take a peek at our hand picked selection of puppy accessories for the perfect bed, collar, and everything else your new pet requires.
