Our guy Vinny is quite an animal lover, and it’s one of the reasons we adore him! Though we haven’t seen him interacting with his animal friends on The Show With Vinny, we know he has his own Staten Island menagerie, including five rescue dogs, four cats, a ferret, and a parrot!

Recently, Vinny took a stand for rescue animals by attending and speaking at an important ASPCA event, where he encouraged guests to consider adoption. Vinny Instagrammed this pic of him speaking to the crowd, writing “Adopt a pet TODAY! #adoptathon #NSAL” as the caption. Go, Vinny!

He also Instagrammed an adorable pic of him cuddling a puppy, looking very sharp in an ASPCA T-shirt and sunglasses. “Ummm can you die? Look at this face. Not mine. #Adoptathon #NSAL,” he wrote as a caption. We definitely died a little inside (of happiness) looking at Vinny holding that precious puppy.

What do you think of Vinny’s work with ASPCA? Are you proud of him for making a difference for these animals? Share below!
