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.

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.
