Last week, a cat named Dennis Quaid showed up at the Lynchburg Humane Society in need of a forever home. Fortunately this week he got adopted. Guess who adopted him.
“It was really off the wall, but I just couldn’t resist. I had to,” said Dennis Quaid.
Quaid couldn’t pass up adopting the little guy with his name from the Lynchburg Humane Society.
“I’m out to save all the Dennis Quaids of the world,” said Quaid.
That story caught the attention of the Hollywood actor, musician and now, podcaster. Quaid as it turns out is executive producer of a pet podcast so this scenario could not be more perfect.
“I was like there is no way this is real, like, someone is pranking us,” said Danielle Ulmer, Lynchburg Humane Society, Adoption Center Manager.
“We reached out to the shelter. It took us a while for them to actually believe us,” said Jimmy Jellinek, co-host of The Pet Show. After convincing the shelter staff that he and Quaid were on the level, they got to meet Dennis Quaid, the cat, via Zoom.
This weekend, Dennis Quaid flies home to meet Dennis Quaid.
