Cast members from America's Got Talent Live In Las Vegas visited The Animal Foundation Thursday, October 25 to kick off a new partnership and awareness campaign. Million-dollar AGT winners Olate Dogs and runner-up Tom Cotter took part in a tour of the facility and a meet-and-greet with donors, staff and visitors. Richard and Nick Olate even managed to find two new members for their famous four-legged team, adopting Kilo and Snowball, rescues they met during their tour.

"We saw them and immediately fell in love," said Nick. "There are so many dogs out there that need homes and The Animal Foundation does a great job of connecting wonderful pets with suitable owners."

The visit is part of an ongoing partnership between America's Got Talent Live In Las Vegas and The Animal Foundation, dedicated to making a difference in the lives of animals in the Las Vegas Valley. The Animal Foundation is accepting donations for new/used linens, dog/cat treats, leashes, collars, etc. and all donors will receive a special ticket offer valid for performances of America's Got Talent Live In Las Vegas at The Palazzo through November 17.
