Matthew McConaughey's Family Just Adopted 2 Rescue Puppies in a Week
The actor's wife, Camila Alves, introduced the new additions on Instagram.
There's unfortunately no shortage of rescue animals in need of forever homes, which makes it easy for pet lovers to end up with more furry roommates than they may have originally intended—and that includes celebrities. That's how Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves ended up adopting not one but two rescue puppies this past week. The new additions joined their home just two days apart, and once you get a look at these adorable pups, you'll see why they couldn't resist.

On Saturday, Alves introduced their new rescue.
Alves posted a selfie to her Instagram on Saturday showing their new puppy settling in. "New addition to the family " she captioned the photo. "What was I thinking!!! 4 months old …THANK YOU @humanesociety for what you do!! This little one has a home now!"

And on Monday, she shared a snap of another adoptee.
Two days later, Alves posted another, almost identical photo to her account. The only major difference? She's cuddling with a different dog.
"If you thought…what was I thinking with a 4 month old puppy…well how about with another one that's 2 months old!!" Alves wrote in the Monday post. "Yep, got work cut out for me in the next months!"
This pup also came from the Humane Society, and while Alves didn't share either of their names with their Instagram debuts, hopefully we'll learn them soon.

They'll be joining an already full house.
The McConaughey family isn't new to pet ownership. They already had a pair of older dogs and a cat when they added these rescues to the squad. (And that includes Cheesy, the senior dog pictured above. From the looks of this Instagram video of Alves giving him a massage, this family's four-legged friends lead a charmed life.)
"3 kids, 2 older dogs , 2 pups, 1 cat and my mother in law," Alves also wrote on the second puppy pic, adding up all the residents of their family home.

And the stars wouldn't have it any other way.
Together, McConaughey and Alves have three kids: Levi, Vida, and Livingston, who are 12, 10, and 8, respectively. During quarantine, the actor opened up about some of their household rules, telling Oprah Winfrey that their children are barred from saying "I can't" and "hate." They also don't "allow lying in the house," he added. They do, however, allow pets who are in need of care, which shows that adopting and not shopping is a priority these stars are passing on to their kids.
