“Paris Hilton Adores Her Chihuahuas.”

Who is Paris Hilton?  Paris Hilton was born on February 17, 1981 in New York City into the Hilton family.  She has three younger siblings and is heir to the enormous Hilton hotel and real estate dynasty that her family owns.

Hilton was sent to expensive schools and given the opportunity to accomplish whatever career she dreamed of achieving.  Instead, she dropped out of high school and eventually earned her high school GED.

Living the glitzy socialite life from a relatively early age, attending exclusive parties and being covered by the gossip press, Hilton apparently became hooked on obtaining celebrity status, which was perhaps furthered by the example of her mother, Kathy Hilton, who had a brief acting career herself, mostly on TV. Hilton began a remarkable and well-financed campaign to put herself in the public eye, on screen, on television and in music.

She starred in TV commercials, on TV series and in the movies, at first bit parts in movies such as Zoolander (2001), Wonderland (2003), Dr. Seuss’ The Cat in the Hat (2003) and guest-star roles on TV shows such as “The O.C.” (2003) and “George Lopez”(2002), but later more substantial roles in horror flick House of Wax (2005), the direct-to-DVD Bottoms Up (2006) (V) and her own TV show, the fish-out-of-water reality series “The Simple Life” (2003).

Hilton also has plans to become a player in the music business, has recorded an album and even started her own music label, Heiress Records, in order to release it.

In fact, performing is only part of her many activities and she has dabbled in designing, writing (using a professional writing team), nightclub management and even marketing video games – all of which feature Paris Hilton, front and center.

Did you know…?

Paris truly loves and cares for animals.  She has said many times that her dogs mean the world to her.  Paris Hilton loves her pet dogs so much that she came up with her own line of apparel for them. What is more amazing is that she even spent thousands of dollars to come up with a mansion where she can keep them all. Now, that is one pet owner who loves her dogs a lot!

Paris Hilton Gets Dirty with the Dogs

Paris Hilton loves dogs and her tremendous love for dogs has provoked her to adopt several dogs.  She has even gotten dirty with the dogs by helping and caring for dogs in shelters.  One of the dog shelters she has helped was the Animal Foundation.  It is the largest single-site and open-admission animal shelter in Nevada and one of the busiest shelters in the country. On average, 136 animals are dropped off each day, for more than 50,000 animals per year.  The foundation’s mission is to reduce the pet overpopulation problem and save abandoned and lost animals brought about my today’s hard-hit economy.

WooFStoria Tip for Day

It is great to hear the heart-warming stories of a rescue dog being brought home to a new family.  However, not all shelter dogs are lucky enough to be adopted.  Millions of dogs and cats die annually in shelters across the country because there are no homes for them and many of these animals are pure breeds. Please consider adopting from a shelter and saving a life!
