We’re all a little lonely in quarantine, celebrities included. Animal shelters across the country have reported a surge in adoptions since the beginning of the pandemic, even crashing one rescue’s website.
But singer Ariana Grande has it covered, announcing a new website for Orange Twins Rescue on Instagram.
“We are so happy, proud and excited,” she wrote in the caption of an old-school Windows desktop screen with a logo for the nonprofit open on a Microsoft Paint browser.
The Los Angeles rescue already has an Internet following of its own, with more than 41,000 followers within just a few hours after the post, although not quite close to rivaling Grande’s 206 million Instagram followers. On Facebook, the rescue has started a fundraiser alongside its regular updates on pets in their care.

The artist, who released her new album “positions” just weeks ago, has adopted 11 rescue dogs of her own: Coco, Cinnamon, Toulouse, Strauss, Lafayette, Snape, Sirius, Lily, Pignoli, Ophelia and Myron, who she adopted with late artist Mac Miller. Oh, and a pig named Piggy Smallz. But it seems she’s not quite done yet, lending her artistic talents and aesthetic to the recently launched rescue.
Grande’s own creative director and choreographers Brian and Scott Nicholson are founders of the organization, reported the Daily Mail, and Bel Air Grooming owner Asami Kuroki is foster coordinator. The rescue already has a list of adoptable pets (Three cats: Sun, Screech and AC Slater) and applications to foster on its Linktree, as well as a Paypal donation link and an Amazon wish list.
