There's more to tell about Sharon Osbourne's adorable Yorkie puppy!
Even though we were were all happy to hear about Ozzy Osbourne donating a whopping $10,000 to Autism for the pup, and even though we were even more elated when we watched Holly Robinson-Peete surprise Sharon with the baby on The Talk, PETA was not.
Shortly after the story broke, PETA took to their twitter with disdain for selling animals in auctions:
Whenever we see celebs w/ purebred pups, we write 2 make sure they r aware of homeless animal crisis. Adoption is always the way to go!
But, of course, Mrs. Osbourne isn't one to sit back and take things silently.
Instead, she rebutted with her own tweets:
I don’t agree with PETA’s criticism of @Hollyrpeete for auctioning a rescue dog at her HollyRod charity event. Not only did @Hollyrpeete help place a rescue dog, she also raised money for Autism which is doubly-good.
While we totally agree on always considering adoption first, this is a special example.
Sharon wasn't looking for a dog. She just happened to think this one was precious, so her loving husband bought it for her on a 10K whim — one that benefits another very important cause.
