Denise Richards Adopts Dog in Support of Superstorm Sandy Relief Efforts

Mark Sullivan/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Stars from Snooki and Ben Stiller to Madonna and newlyweds Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have been spotted giving back to the victims of superstorm Sandy, but now one star has announced she has taken something in to aid relief efforts on the East Coast.

Actress Denise Richards has added another animal to her well-documented brood of pets, adopting a dog from the North Shore Animal League in Long Island, N.Y., after an appearance there Friday to encourage others to take in the influx of abandoned pets displaced by the storm.

“Denise Richards visited North Shore Animal League America headquarters yesterday to provide vital help in spreading the word about our disaster relief efforts and encouraging adoptions,” the shelter, whose spokeswoman is Beth Stern, the wife of Howard Stern, posted on its Facebook page Saturday. “During their visit Denise and her family fell in love with Tara the Labrador Mutt-i-gree puppy and welcomed her into their home!”

Richards -- mom to two daughters, Lola and Sam with her ex-husband, Charlie Sheen, and a third daughter, Eloise, whom she adopted on her own -- has been in the New York City area for the past month filming the new pilot series Socio for the ABC Family Channel.

Last Thursday she tweeted, “Day off tomorrow. Heading to an animal shelter, to help out. Over 600 rescued from the hurricane. My girls are coming to help too.”

It was not immediately clear whether the puppy, which reports Richards has renamed Lily, was one of the pets abandoned during Sandy or not.  A call placed to the North Shore Animal League for comment was not immediately returned.

A call placed to Richards’ publicist was also not returned as of this writing.

Richards, 41, told People in 2010 that her friends call her “Dr. Doolittle” for her love of animals.

“I swear, if there’s a dog stranded somewhere, he finds my car, and he finds me,” she told the magazine. “If anyone is looking to get a dog, they ask, ‘Can you help me?’”

Report: Charlie Sheen, Denise Richards Not Talking After NYC 'Nightmare'

ABC/RICHARD CARTWRIGHT(NEW YORK) -- Rumors recently swirled that a weekend Charlie Sheen spent with his ex-wife Denise Richards and their daughters Sam and Lola last month in New York City went awry, though at the time the Anger Management star's camp denied that he's back to partying hard.

However, The Huffington Post reports there was a big problem in the Big Apple between Sheen and Richards.

"New York was a nightmare," a friend tells HuffPo gossip guy Naughty But Nice Rob, and as a result, the stars -- who generally have been on good terms -- "have not spoken since then."

The source says of Sheen, "He didn’t see the kids in New York, except for the [Mets] game that they all attended.  It’s very, very sad.  Everyone around him tries so hard to keep the peace for the kids. But at times you have to step away.  There is so much that people don’t know.  Denise would have nothing to do with him if they didn’t have kids together."

Later on Tuesday, TMZ reported Mueller obtained a restraining order requiring Sheen to stay 100 yards away from her.  It also prevents him from speaking to her.

The custody issue wasn't referenced in the order, but both People magazine and RadarOnline report police have removed Sheen's twin boys from his home and returned them to Mueller.  The report says police acted on instructions from a Los Angeles judge to reunite two-year-old twins Bob and Max with their mom.  The website quotes a source as saying Mueller "will have custody of the boys."

Sheen reportedly told RadarOnline as police removed the boys from his home, "My fangs are dripping tiger blood."

To further complicate matters, The Los Angeles Times reports police were summoned to Sheen's home Tuesday night by a security guard who said the actor's former wife Denise Richards had arrived at the house to check on the two daughters she shares with Sheen.  A source tells the newspaper those children were not removed from the home.  It's unclear if they were there to begin with.
