Protecting dogs part of Michelle’s ‘purpose’
Actress Michelle Vito refuses to feel pressured into becoming a military reservist like her boyfriend, actor Enzo Pineda, or becoming a policeman like her dad Michael.
She points out that her decision not to join the force will not mean she would no longer be able to help other people. “I promise to extend help in a different way,” she told Inquirer Entertainment. “I want to focus on giving aid to people living on the streets. I also want to help protect dogs because I’m a dog lover.”
In fact, Michelle spent her 24th birthday on Oct. 4 handing out donations to groups that protect the welfare of dogs, as well as helping out in feeding programs for street dwellers. “That’s where I want to position myself in relation to advocacies. That’s my purpose.”
