MTV might not have wanted former "Jersey Shore" cast member Angelina Pivarnick for its Hurricane Sandy clean-up benefit "Restore the Shore" -- but count Pauly D among those who thought she should have invited.

As TMZ first reported, Angelina reached out to MTV to be a part of the show, but MTV wasn't having it.

But when we caught up with DJ Pauly D in Manhattan yesterday, he told us everyone should have been welcome because it's for a good cause.

Pauly D is also helping out by partnering with the ASPCA to raise awareness about the pets that were affected by Hurricane Sandy.

He's a guido with a heart of gold.
