Actress and director Natalie Morales can be seen starring in the new NBC comedy “Abby’s” as a tough-talking bartender who has a soft spot for the group of misfits who frequent her unlicensed watering hole. In real life, Morales is a champion for homeless pets.

She is also known for numerous memorable television roles including “Santa Clarita Diet”, “The Grinder”, “The Newsroom” and "Parks & Recreation’.
“My life would be so lonely and boring without Taco and Axl. They make every day better and I’m so lucky I found them,” Morales said. “Best Friends is an aptly titled organization because they truly help you find your best friend.” "There’s a homeless pet waiting for you to come find them. What are you waiting for? "
Morales recently joined fellow pet-loving celebrities such as Danny Trejo, Carrie Ann Inaba, Denise Richards , Nils Lofgren , Josef Newgarden ,Amanda Seyfried, Cecily Strong Maggie Q, Elisabeth Rohm, Lisa Edelstein , Tricia Helfer, Emmy Rossum, Michelle Beadle, Jack and Suzy Welch, Mike Rowe , Allison Janney, Whitney Cummings, Christopher Walken, Bob Odenkirk, Britt Robertson, Lauren Ash and Bobby Bones to pose with her dogs as part of Best Friends Animal Society’s “I Saved My Best Friend” photo campaign.
The campaign was designed to compellingly illustrate the national animal welfare organizations’ Save Them All call to action to end the killing of shelter pets by 2025. Best Friends has brought increased awareness to how people can get involved in the solution by adopting, spaying/neutering their pets, donating, volunteering and sharing this message with their friends.
