Ian Somerhalder is famous for his role as Damon on The Vampire Diaries. But, he is a huge animal lover that he runs a special foundation – Ian Somerhalder Foundation. Through the foundation, Somerhalder raises funds and awareness for animals and the environment.
In 2013, Somerhalder rescued Neitczhe, a Pit Bull who was running in traffic near the set of The Vampire Diaries. After saving her, he decided to keep her. Somerhalder went to Twitter to talk about his new girl, ““[She’s] all a man could ask for in a girl.” He even tweeted that they are super happy together.
But, it wasn’t long after he brought Neitczhe home that she whelped a litter of puppies. Somerhalder found homes for the five puppies and had Neitczhe spayed.
