Famous for his comedy, stunts, and long-running series “Jackass” Steve-O made Idaho headlines for helping a dog find a home. One of the long-term dogs of the Idaho Humane Society, an older pup named Quartz was able to find a home thanks to Steve-O.
Quartz’ adoption was part of a larger event during Steve-O’s comedy show at The Egyptian Theatre as part of his 'The Bucket List Tour,' where he brought out a group of adoptable dogs on stage with the goal of some of them being adopted.
“We had the incredible opportunity to join Steve-O on stage at his Bucket List Tour last Friday and Saturday night to highlight some adoptable dogs,” the Idaho Humane Society wrote in a Facebook post.
“Because of this exposure, one of our long-term pups, Quartz, went home yesterday! Thank you for being an animal welfare advocate and for using your platform to help raise awareness about local shelters! It was an awesome experience; we appreciate it.”
Steve-O has four dogs himself and writes on his website that he plans to open an animal sanctuary in the future with his fiance, Lux.
