The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Dolores Catania is known as a proud mother and aunt, but she is also a devout dog mom. She frequently posts pictures of her pups to her Instagram, even claiming, “Whoever said diamonds are a girl’s best friend never had a dog.”
Catania spoke with PEOPLE about her passion for helping rescue dogs: “Nothing makes me feel more fulfilled than giving an animal a better quality of life.” (You can watch the video below.)
Having grown up with rescues, Catania is no stranger to helping pups in need. But recently she has dedicated extra time to the effort, even passing along her expertise to her daughter Gabby (who is currently studying pre-veterinary medicine at the University of Delaware). Together, they pull strays of the streets, give them thorough cleanings, and then take them to the vet—so they’re in great shape for a forever home.
