Dancing With The Stars Carrie Ann Inaba And Pet Rescue Story Featured In People Magazine

Be sure to pick up this week’s issue of People Magazine. Dancing With The Stars Carrie Ann Inaba is featured in it with a story on her and her pet rescues. Cute teaser below.

ETA: People now has part of the special feature published online. You can view it in full and see a really sweet photo here. Carrie Ann’s smile says it all!

Carrie Ann Inaba had already rescued her 10-year-old chow chow/Chihuahua/pug mix, Peanut, when she was introduced to Lola and Buddy, now both 2 and half years old.

“One of the organizations I work with sent me a picture of these two dogs that needed to be adopted out, but they were going to separate them,” the Dancing With the Stars judge, 48, tells PEOPLE. “I looked at them and I was like, ‘They only have each other in this world.’ “

Inaba (who is wearing a T-shirt from Dirtee Hollywood’s The Animal Project collection) was planning on fostering them until she could find a home that would take both pups.

“But as soon as I fostered them, I failed at the foster, and I now have three dogs!” she says.

PureDWTS Exclusive: Lindsay Arnold Gives Us A Sneak Peek Into Her Dance Show With Witney Carson And More

Only one more day until Lindsay Arnold and Witney Carson’s Born And Raised In Utah Show taking place in Salt Lake City, Utah Friday, July 15th. We were curious how Lindsay was feeling during these last few days of their final rehearsals. She tells us below. She also gives us a tiny peak into one of the fun performances and more. We can’t thank Lindsay enough for her time. If you haven’t bought tickets yet, see this link as this show sounds like a MUST SEE!!

Hi Lindsey!! Only 4 more days until your “Born And Raised in Utah” show! How are you feeling about it right now as you approach the last rehearsals?

I am feeling so excited and overwhelmed with gratitude. It has been so fun to get back in the dance studio with all of our utah dance friends and create something that is very special and meaningful to Witney and I. We are also so so stoked that our celebrity partners Alek Skarlatos, Alfonso Ribeiro, and Von Miller are joining us!

Which performances are you and the cast looking forward to the most that you’d like fans to watch out for?

There are so many performances that we are looking forward to and have created a lot of variety through out the show. One piece that I am extremely excited about is a Michael Jackson inspired dance featuring our dance coach Rick Robinson. This man has trained so many talented dancers that are in the entertainment industry; Julianne Hough, Mark Ballas, Derek Hough, along with Witney and I and has truly helped us reach our goals. We are so excited to perform with him in our show!!

We’ve heard you have a lot of special guests. Can you tell us about them a little?

We do have a lot of special guests for this show that we are so excited about! We have Super Bowl MVP Von Miller from DWTS season 22, Alek Skarlatos from DWTS season 21, Alfonso Ribeiro DWTS season 19 champion, James the Mormon (a local up and coming rap artist), Brooklyn Fullmer from SYTYCD, Hailee Payne from SYTYCD, Alexia Meyer from SYTYCD, Marcquet Hill from SYTYCD, and Jaymz Tuileva from SYTYCD. The cool thing about our SYTYCD guests is that they all grew up and trained in dancing in Utah! We want this show to showcase the incredible talent Utah has to offer and also give back to our hometown fans and support system. Without the support and love from our families, coaches, and friends from Utah we would not be where we are today.
