Alicia Silverstone is an actress and author, and also an outspoken animal rights activist. She and her husband, Christopher Jarecki, are the proud parents of four rescue dogs named The Pig, Lacey, Sampson and Sweety. While filming Clueless in 1995, Alicia found Sampson, a 65-pound mixed-breed beauty who had been hit by a car. Once Sampson was released from the animal hospital, Alicia couldn’t help but take him home with her, and so began her journey with animals. All four of her dogs are rescue animals, but she wanted to do more, so she built an animal sanctuary on her property which is named Stonehaven. Stonehaven is the home to over 90 animals that include dogs, cats, birds, pot-bellied pigs and any other furry creature in need of a home.
