Madhuri Dixit, one of Hindi cinema's most loved and popular actresses has just given her fans some serious pet goals! The actress, her husband Dr Shriram Nene and their children have adopted an Indie stray pup from PETA India in Mumbai.

The official website of PETA posted the news with some really adorable pictures of the family. The report says, "As India gets ready to celebrate the festival of colours – Holi – Bollywood superstar Madhuri Dixit and her husband, Dr Shriram Nene, are adding colour to a dog’s life, too. When the celebrity couple heard from their pals at PETA India about an abandoned puppy who had been rescued by the group, they immediately decided to help by adopting him. The timing was perfect: he was adopted on their son Arin's birthday. This isn’t the first time the family gave a home to a dog in need. Their dog Riya, who passed away, was also adopted. Two more rescued puppies in need of permanent, loving homes are still with PETA India."

Madhuri was quoted, "Abandoning a companion dog or cat is the cruellest thing to do. I’m happy we will be able to give this pup a new lease of life. I join PETA India in urging everyone who has the time, space, and resources to give a dog a lifetime of care to adopt from the street or shelter instead of buying one."

Madhuri's husband, Dr Nene tweeted about the adoption with a picture. 

Apparently, this isn't the first time that Madhuri has come out to help strays and animals in need. The actress and her family have always teamed up with the organisation to rescue puppies stuck in drains and crows that are entangled in wires. In fact, after she got to know about elephants being killed in Assam, Madhuri sent a letter on behalf of PETA India to the officials in that region.

The actress also shared her new pet's images on Instagram saying, "The smiles on our faces show how this little pup stole our hearts! Welcome to the family Carmelo Nene
