Ariana Grande-Butera is largely known as Ariana Grande. She supports an LA animal rescue that rehabilitates animals in need. Grande is a well-known animal lover who has plenty of pooches to go around. She’s won a variety of awards for her 4-octave vocal range, including  two Grammy Awards, one Brit Award, two Billboard Music Awards, three American Music Awards, nine MTV Video Music Awards, and 27 Guinness World Records. Apparently, as of 2022, Ariana Grande’s pets include nine dogs.

How many dogs does Ariana Grande have?

As of 2022, Ariana Grande has twelve dogs, with most of them rescue adoptions. Grande’s dogs’ names and breeds are: Strauss – Terrier mix, Ophelia – Chocolate Labradoodle, Toulouse Grande – Beagle/Chihuahua mix, Cinnamon – Brindle American Pitbull Terrier, Coco – Dachshund/German Shepherd mix, Fawkes Kitty – Shua Inu, Sirius – Poodle mix, Lafayette – Bloodhound, Myron – Pitbull mix, Snape – Basset Hound, Lily – Basset Hound, and Pignoli – Chihuahua. Coco was Ariana’s first dog, but Toulouse has joined her on tour and on the Jimmy Fallon show, creating the rumour that he might be the dog-mom’s favorite. She’s said, “he just gets it” when asked if he was trained. Besides dogs, she has a pet micro-pig named Piggy Smallz. But, the one animal Ariana Grande will likely never have is a cat as she’s allergic, as well as bananas and shellfish. Grande is also a vegan, though if it’s a dietary choice or for the love of animals, we’re not sure.

Ariana Grande Philanthropy and Animal Welfare

In 2014, she partnered with MAC Cosmetics to release a line of makeup products, with all proceeds going to support animal welfare organizations. Additionally, Grande has been involved with a number of animal rescue and adoption initiatives, and has been a strong supporter of organizations such as Best Friends Animal Society and the Humane Society of the United States.

Grande Career

Grande was born June 26, 1993, is an American singer and actress. She began her career in the Broadway musical 13, before landing the role of Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon television series Victorious in 2009. Grande’s acting accolades have landed her in: Snowflake, the White Gorilla (2011), Underdogs (2016), Zoolander 2 (2016), Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special (2020), Ariana Grande: Excuse Me, I Love You (2020), Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry (2021), and Don’t Look Up (2021). She performed in Don’t Look Up alongside Kid Cudi, joining the cast with Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo Dicaprio, Meryl Streep, Jonah Hill, Timothée Chalamet, and Chris Evans.

Grande’s music career began with the soundtrack Music from Victorious (2011). She signed a recording contract with Republic Records and released her debut studio album, Yours Truly in 2013, which debuted at No. 1 on the US Billboard 200. Above all her accomplishments, big ups to Ariana for her dedication to working with sheltered animals.

Grande Personal Life

Ariana is the younger sister to Frankie Grande and she is married to Dalton Gomez. Prior to her marriage to Gomez, the singer was engaged to Pete Davidson before they called it quits, but not before he got a tattoo of her iconic rabbit ears among many others — including one dedicated to Piggy Smallz the piglet. Ariana has also allegedly dated Mac Miller, Graham Phillips, Jai Brooks, Nathan Sykes, Ricky Alvarez, and Big Sean. She’s collaborated musically with Mac Miller, Nathan Sykes, and Big Sean. Grande also joined Justin Bieber on his Believe Tour for three shows though they did not date.

With, we’re assuming, inspiration from these past relationships, Ariana Grande has produced multiple songs about being in love and breaking up — especially “Thank U Next” which names names. And, it’s not for nothing — songs like “Thank U Next” and “Boyfriend” have netted Ariana multiple awards.

Ariana faced backlash over Mac Miller’s death. Unfortunately, the singer was blamed by some of the public for his tragic passing.
