Model Tiff gets some puppy love

SINGLE model Tiffany Stanley has found some lovable creatures to keep her company on lonely weekends in LA – a pen full of stray pooches.

The blonde beauty says that she misses her pet dogs so much while in the States that she has begun working with an animal rescue centre in her spare time.

The Kildare native has been in LA since May, where she is attempting to carve out a modelling and TV career.

She has been at Hugh Hefner's Playboy mansion more than once and has partied with A-listers such as Tom Cruise and male supermodel Tyson Beckford, but the 24-year-old has found another passion to keep her occupied at the weekends.

Animal lover Tiffany says she wants to help to rehabilitate dogs who have been used in labs for animal testing.

"It really disgusts me," Tiffany told the Diary.

"I want to raise awareness and also help the brave ones that actually survive the testing processes.

"I miss my dogs at home so at least I'll be getting some canine cuddles this way too," she added.
