Joss Stone Fosters Dog
Soul singer invites a shelter pup into her NYC recording studio

I love when celebrities use their star power to help a good cause, especially when it involves animals.

For the past week, Joss Stone has been fostering a dog while recording her next album in New York. Stone is a huge dog lover and missed her four pups back home in England. When she inquired about fostering, Animal Haven matched her up with Oprah, a six-year-old Bull Mastiff/Pit Bull mix. Oprah's sweet, laid back personality was perfect for hanging out in the recording studio.

Stone has been posting video blog updates on her YouTube page to encourage people to give Oprah a forever home.

So far the match has been a win-win for everyone. Stone gets her canine fix and Oprah gets quality time outside of the shelter and exposure to potential adopters around the world. Stone promotes the all-important act of fostering. Plus, Oprah's loving personality is giving Pit Bull mixes some great publicity!

Anyone interested in adopting Oprah should visit Animal Haven's website or call 212.274.8511 for more information.
