Melanie Griffith

I'm the Angelina Jolie

... of Dogs!

It was Melanie Griffith to the rescue in L.A. ... when the actress and her husband rolled into an animal rescue center a few weeks ago and adopted 2 puppies that had been abandoned and abused ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us ... Melanie and Antonio Banderas stopped by the Ace of Hearts organization roughly 3 weeks ago, after two of their dogs passed away ... and wanted to bring a couple of new puppies into their homes.

We're told Mel and Antonio had worked with Ace of Hearts in the past ... and are strong supporters of adopting rescues.

According to our sources, Melanie and Antonio fell in love with 2 shepherd lab mixes -- who happened to be brother and sister ... and immediately took them into their family.

Gotta love a story with a happy ending.

Really sweet. But what does it have to do with Jolie?? PLENTY of people adopt domestically and overseas.

She looks like a nightmare. I hope she sued the surgeon.

The money that she has wasted on plastic surgery could have saved a lot of dogs...and possibly her career.

That's awesome! We need more celebs like them instead of ones that support breeders. And everyone needs to ban puppy mills. Adopting older animals is also something to be considered.

Mel & Antonio did something very admirable. It's nice to read a story about Celebs doing a good deed rather then getting arrested or screwing up.

melanie griffith was beautiful back in the day, such a shame she didn't allow that beauty to naturally age, NOBODY should ever go under the knife unless you were born disfigured (i hate saying that) or in a horrible accident

I sure can't fault a dog owner. When we had to put our dog down I cried for a week missing her. We went to a shelter and I would have taken them all, but we found two dogs who were shelter buddies and brought them home. I was happy, the dogs were happy, and they loved my kids. Win-win- win. Good for her!
