Former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson has taken her animal welfare work to a new level as she has adopted two new dogs after they were abandoned at animal shelters in Louisiana after the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in April.

The actress has teamed up with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), to relocate around 50 pooches to Virginia.

Pamela who has two sons, Brandon, 13, and Dylan, 11, from her marriage to ex-husband Tommy Lee said: "My son was hoping we could take all 50.

"People can't afford to feed their families, so the family member that gets left behind and has to go is the pet," quoted her as saying.

The owners in the oil-spill affected regions abandoned their pets as they lost their jobs or moved away from the area. The breed of her pets has been identified as Chihuahua.
