Just call her Captain Elf! Carrie Ann Inaba may be a Dancing with the Stars judge by day, but most other waking hours are spent caring for animals, including six dogs and cats she calls her own. This year, Inaba also fulfilled a lifelong goal of starting an animal foundation when she launched The Carrie Ann Inaba Animal Project, which aims to support the rescue, welfare and well-being of animals.

BLANKETS FOR SHELTERS

BLANKETS FOR SHELTERS

"One of the best gifts you can give to an animal is a donation of a blanket to your local animal shelter during the winter months," Inaba says. If you're feeling even more generous and have the means, Inaba suggests fostering an animal for a few days so that it can get a break from the stress of shelter life. "It's a wonderful gift to give love and charity to those less fortunate than you during the holidays."
