Stephen Colbert and Aubrey Plaza came up with the best way to get rescue dogs adopted ever
Stephen Colbert loves rescue dogs. But what he doesn’t love? Weepy animal shelter ads that go for the emotional jugular.
One aww-inducing lab mix, Slugger, boasted shiatsu massage training in his pedigree. (OMG, we’re sold.) Luna, a terrier-shepherd cross, earned a degree in psychiatric medicine, and is now a certified couples’ counselor.
And a few puppies were remarkably social-justice savvy. For example, the adorable Murphy volunteers at the animal shelter in his free time. A hound named Ace not only had muffin-scented breath, but also an impressive devotion to women’s rights.
While the stories may have been totally bogus, the dogs are actually adoptable. And we’re hoping that their celebrity encounter will help the pups find a home pretty soon.

We need all of them. ALL OF THEM.
