LYNCHBURG, Va. – We couldn’t make this story up if we tried.

Last week, we introduced you to a cat named Dennis Quaid at the Lynchburg Humane Society in need of a forever home, as part of our Clear the Shelters initiative.

This weekend, he will make his journey to that home, but you may not believe who’s adopting him.

“It was really off the wall, but I just couldn’t resist. I had to,” said Dennis Quaid.

Quaid couldn’t pass up adopting the little guy with his name from the Lynchburg Humane Society.

“I’m out to save all the Dennis Quaids of the world,” said Quaid.

The name certainly sparked a lot of buzz after WSLS 10 News featured Dennis Quaid during a newscast last week.

That story caught the attention of the Hollywood actor, musician and now, podcaster.
