Anna Faris is in some trouble with a North Hollywood animal shelter.
TMZ reports that the actress has been fined a reported $5,000 after a chihuahua she adopted named Pete was found on the streets in bad shape.
Laurel Kinder, the owner of Kinder4Rescue, told TMZ that Faris adopted the pooch 4 years ago and signed a contract stating that she would have to pay a fine if she ever gave the dog away, and disclose the info of the new owners.
After the dog was recently discovered looking worse for the wear, a vet ran his microchip and discovered he was registered to Faris. She has since been placed on the shelter’s Do-Not-Adopt list.
“We spoke to sources connected to Anna and Chris Pratt and they say the couple is out of state, but they’ve gotten wind that Pete was found, and intend to make arrangements for the dog to be brought home. We were also told they had found a ‘nice family home’ for Pete.”
Faris can be removed from the shelter’s ‘banned’ list if she can show proof that she’s been searching for Pete, though they still might sue her for breach of contract if she did give him away.
