TV funnyman Ricky Gervais is definitely not afraid to say it how it is when it comes to saving helpless animals.
So when he saw a plea for help from a Romanian dog shelter, the star jumped into action on Twitter. The shelter, which is in the city of Odai, was inundated with 680 dogs and lacked the food, bowls and beds for them.
Fresh from The Emmys, Ricky retweeted a fundraising page set up to help the shelter by London-based dog charity
The shelter have even named one of the dogs after Ricky, as a thanks for his help. The K-9 angels wrote:
Thank you The Mirror and Ricky Gervais for highlighting this.
