Actor Rob Lowe, his brother, and his son have a heart for special needs dogs, according to TMZ. For the past six months the trio have been giving their time and love to One Dog Rescue in California.

Lowe and his family have been coordinating adoption events, renting mobile spay/neuter clinics, and buying toys for the dogs.

TMZ says that Rob’s son is especially involved in the rescue process — regularly visiting the pups, and even checking up on them in foster homes to make sure they’re doing ok.

One Dog Rescue specializes in the rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption of abandoned dogs. One Dog Rescue puts special focus on helping special needs dogs who are red listed to be euthanized at local shelters. They generally rescue small dogs but they also do rescue larger dogs on occasion, as well as birds and cats.

It’s refreshing to hear of star-studded celebrities not only giving their money, but also their time, to such a worthy cause.
