There is really nothing better than the faces of my fur babies when I open the door to come home...that reception is my favorite part of any day, and a constant reminder that we didn't just save them, they most definitely saved us right back.

With an audience of over 1 million Twitter followers and legions of fans from her work on ESPN's SportsNation, Beadle doesn't pull any punches when it comes to speaking her mind. One of the topics she is passionate about is saving the lives of the millions of dogs and cats who end up in our nation’s shelters every year: “your best friend will save your life when you save his or hers,” she says. 

In addition to serving as a co-host of SportsNation, Beadle previously served as a co-host for Access Hollywood Live and contributor for Access Hollywood, as well as host of The Crossover for NBC Sports and anchor and reporter for various NBC Sports platforms and events. While at NBC, Michelle also reported on both sports and entertainment for the Today Show. She’s also worked with People magazine and People.com hosting the online feature “What You Missed Over the Weekend,” and has served as a Red Carpet reporter for multiple awards shows. Michelle got her start in TV as a reporter for the San Antonio Spurs and FSN and soon moved to TNN, known now as Spike TV.

"There is really nothing better than the faces of my fur babies when I open the door to come home,” Beadle said. “Whether it's been five minutes, five hours, or five days, it doesn't matter; that reception is my favorite part of any day, and a constant reminder that we didn't just save them, they most definitely saved us right back.  No matter what kind of pet you've always dreamed of, the breed, size, even color, your perfect baby is out there, waiting to be adopted.”

Beadle joins Danny Trejo, Carrie Ann Inaba, Denise Richards, Nils Lofgren, Josef Newgarden, Amanda Seyfried, Cecily Strong, Maggie Q, Elisabeth Rohm, Lisa Edelstein, Tricia Helfer, Emmy Rossum, and other luminaries participating in Best Friends’ photo campaign featuring celebrities posed with their personal rescued dogs and/or cats in support of the Save Them All call to action.

According to national statistics, each day more than 9,000 dogs and cats die in the nation’s shelters. Best Friends Animal Society has brought increased awareness to how people can get involved in the solution by adopting, and spaying/neutering their pets, donating, volunteering and sharing this message with their friends.
