Does Kelly Clarkson Have Any Pets?

Joplin (Dog)

Breed: Poodle | Adopted May 2011

Kelly loved Joplin, who she adopted in May 2011 and we imagine named her after the singer Janis Joplin. She even tweeted she was her soulmate, apologizing that it wasn’t her then-fiance Brandon Blackstock. Sadly a few months after that tweet in November 2013, Joplin passed away.

Security (Dog)

Breed: Maltese

Security is one of Kelly’s rescue dogs she’s often seen with. We’re not exactly sure why he’s called security, but he’s apparently known for being a loud snorer.

Wyatt (Dog)

Breed: Poodle | Adopted Feb 2014

In February 2014, a few months after she lost Joplin, Kelly tweeted she had adopted another poodle, this time a brown puppy.

Eddie’s Rescue Ranch in Texas (Ranch)

Breed: Over 80 Rescued animals

Named after a dog of Kelly’s that ran away, her ranch for rescued animals covers 14 acres in Mansfield, Texas. It’s home to over 80 rescue animals, including 30 dogs, 14 horses, 3 ponies, 4 mini-horses, 4 goats, 2 pigs and more. She uses this ranch to provide veterinary care for rescue animals and help them find forever homes. This property also includes her 6,880 square foot home.

Kelly Brianne Clarkson is an American singer and songwriter. She started singing in high school, performed in musicals and trained as a singer. After high school, she was offered full scholarships to several universities thanks to her musical talent, which she turned down. She decided to focus on her music instead, but didn’t attract much attention from record labels. She eventually turned down contracts from Interscope Records and Jive Records, with Kelly saying they wanted to stick her as a “bubblegum act” and she felt she could do better.

Despite her talent and promise, her career continued to stall after high school. This was until her friends convinced her to audition for the first season of American Idol in 2002. She went on to win the first season, launching her career. Unlike many reality show winners and runner-ups, she was able to continue her success up until today with 7 studio albums and multiple tours. She has also won 57 awards, including 3 Grammy Awards, 4 American Music Awards and 12 Billboard Music Awards. Thanks to all this, she has an estimated net worth of $28 million.

Kelly is also a big supporter of animal rights. She has mentioned how she rescued an overweight cat from a shelter and adopted dog found during Hurricane Katrina. She also owns a ranch to house and help rescue animals until they can find forever homes.
