On Thanksgiving day, Kaley Cuoco helped save a sea lion. Cuoco and her husband Karl Cook had been celebrating Thanksgiving day at Cook\u2019s parents' California beach house when the couple saw a sea lion in need of help, The Loop reported. So, Cuoco and Cook did the right thing and took the time to call in the issue to the Channel Islands Marine and Wildlife Institution. The Institute responded by saying they\u2019d contact some volunteers to come out and help the animal. At first, Cuoco was skeptical that any volunteer would show up because it was Thanksgiving day. \u201cThey promised me a volunteer, but I was unsure it would happen since it\u2019s Thanksgiving,\u201d Cuoco wrote in an Instagram post. Thankfully, Cuoco\u2019s worries quickly dissolved into relief. \u201cA few hours later I noticed a group of volunteers huddled around the seal,\u201d she continued. \u201cThey all showed up to help! My heart is full, and I\u2019m thankful these gracious people left their Thanksgiving plans to help an animal in need. Doesn\u2019t get better than that.\u201d Soon after the initial rescue, Cuoco updated her followers on \u201cSandy\u201d the sea lion\u2019s recovery. The sea lion made it safely to the CIMWI\u2019s Santa Barbara facility and was receiving treatment. Sandy will be \u201crehabbed and prepped to be released back into the wild as soon as he\u2019s able,\u201d Cuoco continued. View this post on Instagram The best story!

Thank you!! ? A post shared by Kaley Cuoco (@kaleycuoco) on Nov 23, 2018 at 7:29pm PST Kaley Cuoco is no stranger to animal advocacy. In early November, Cuoco urged her fans to adopt turkeys for Thanksgiving instead of making a meal out of the feathery creatures. \u201cEach year 46 million turkeys are inhumanely raised and slaughtered for Thanksgiving,\u201d Cuoco said. \u201cThe majority of these birds are raised on factory farms, which are linked to numerous environmental problems hurting us and our planet.\u201d Cuoco suggested that fans look into the Farm Sanctuary\u2019s Adopt a Turkey program. The rescue program has saved more than 1,000 birds since 1986. In the past, Cuoco also has provided her talents to other animal advocacy groups. In March, she appeared in a parody of \u201cKeeping Up With the Kardashians\u201d to help support Paw Works, a\u00a0California-based nonprofit animal rescue organization. And in 2015, she appeared in a commercial for the Humane Society of the United States. Become a CLUBKINDLY member today!
