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.

A bit snarky eh comparing her "rescued" dogs to adopted children. Always looking for a way back into the press this one is. The apple does not fall far from the tree.

I think this is a great story. Too many starlets running around with tiny dogs from pet shops that neglect and abuse animals. Adopting is the way to go. I have only ever adopted, and my parents (who get purebreeds) are in awe of how well-behaved and nice my dogs are. I think, with mutts, the best of all breeds come together in the dog :)

First of all, she never said she was the Angelina Jolie of dogs- the title of this story was obviously to provoke nasty comments about her looks. Low.

No comparison to Jolie who has donated millions in aide. If she wants to be correctly compared to Jolie, then she needs to dig in her pockets and donate millions like Jolie to the Humane Society. Adopting 2 dogs does not compare nor make you any kind of pet saint. Get over yourself Melanie!!

Well after all the negative stuff I've read about Griffith, at least now there is something positive you can say for her.

He was the most wonderful Zorro ever,& a talented actor. What a handsome couple he & Salma Hayek were in the movies. She seemed a perfect match for him & they would have had beautiful children!!

She is 55 & he is 52 years old. She is fortunate that he has stayed with her, considering her drug problems & emotional instability. He must be a good man , (although one never knows).They both need to wash their hair~
