After the controversy in October over an adopted dog named Iggy, Ellen DeGeneres is trying to move forward and is helping rebuild animal shelters across the US.
For this project, DeGeneres has teamed up with former Meow Mix owner Richard Thompson. Their first mission is the makeover of an animal sanctuary in Monkey Run, Arkansas.
Thompson said, “We’re halfway done now. We’ve been redoing it for a woman named Janice Wolf, who was found by Ellen. We bulldozed the place, and we’re building a new hay barn and a new barn. She’s got almost 60 animals, including a zebra, some Watusi cattle and 20 dogs, some that are three-legged, blind and deaf.”
He added, “These pets are bringing the community together. Ellen’s one of the best rescue people I’ve ever met, she got a bad rap over Iggy.”
