He helps people get their lives back on track on his hit Netflix series Queer Eye.

And now Antoni Porowski, 36, has switched his attention to a pup in need, fostering a Pit Bull–beagle mix named Neon.

The reality star, who is self-quarantining in Austin, Texas, shared video of his new pet on Instagram Story, promoting Austin Pets Alive, a local animal shelter that aggressively seeks out foster parents for its cats and dogs.

Porowski shared: ‘It’s very important for us to support our local shelters because they’re getting a lot less foot traffic during this crazy ol’ pandemic.’

He also encouraged people to consider fostering a dog or a cat if they didn’t feel able to commit long-term. 

‘You can take them in for a week or two, or longer or shorter, and just give them the nice quality of life that they deserve,’ he explained.

Other celebrities have been inspired to help out shelters by fostering pets, especially as some rescues may be short-staffed during the coronavirus outbreak. 

Actress Camila Morrone, 22, famous for dating Leonardo DiCaprio, adopted a cute husky named Jack, posting a sweet black and white snap showing her snuggling with the puppy. 

The next day she returned to the Hollywood Huskies rescue to take home the dog’s litter mate Jill. 

‘Fostering a puppy during this quarantine time has been the single best decision,’ Morrone told her followers. ‘For all my friends showing interest in doing this, DO IT. You won’t regret it… these sweet creatures need you so badly.’

Like Antoni, The Wolf Of Wall Street’s Kyle Chandler also helped out a dog in need from Austin Pets Alive.

He was so smitten with the pooch that he made their arrangement permanent.

‘Actor Kyle Chandler and his wife Kathryn stopped by yesterday with the intention of fostering a dog. Little Clive stole their hearts and they decided to adopt instead!’ the shelter announced via social media.
