Denise Richards is caring for 10-day-old puppies after their mother died.
The Wild Things star has become a foster parent to the orphaned mutts – who were left without a mother after the poor pooch passed away shortly after delivering them – and has been bottle-feeding them milk.
Denise posted a photo on Instagram of one of the baby dogs being fed with a caption that read: ”Our 10 day old foster pups … their mama sadly passed away after giving birth. Giving them lots of TLC (sic).”
Denise, 44, is a committed animal lover and campaigner for rescue pets, often going online to urge families to give a home to an unwanted animal rather than buy a pet.
The former Bond girl – who has two daughters Sam, 10, and Lola, nine, with ex-husband Charlie Sheen, and adopted daughter Eloise – is known to have an ”open door policy” when it comes to fostering animals.
She once told Pets.webmd.com: ”The number varies, because I’m often fostering. Let’s just say: I built a dog room at my house. When I gutted and remodeled my house, I had the garage converted to a dog bedroom. It has stalls and beautiful bronzey, caramel-colored wallpaper that I wanted for my house. But then I didn’t have a room for it, so the dogs got it. Everyone who sees my dog room wants to come back as one of my dogs.”
