Melanie Griffith - Melanie Griffith rescues abandoned puppies

Melanie Griffith has rescued two puppies.

The 55-year-old actress and her husband Antonio Banderas fell in love with two shepherd/Labrador mixes during a visit to Ace of Hearts animal rescue centre in Los Angeles earlier this month, and decided to welcome the adorable pooches into their home.

The Hollywood couple were moved by the puppies' tragic past after hearing they had been abused and abandoned and the mutts now fill the void left in their home after two of their own dogs passed away.

According to TMZ, Antonio and Melanie have worked with Ace of Hearts rescue centre in the past and are champions for animal adoption.

The couple have been married since 1996 and have 17-year-old daughter Stella together, and claim their love is still going strong three decades on because they support each other no matter what.

Antonio revealed in the past: ''The secret to our marriage is as complicated and as simple: we love each other. We've gone past that first intoxicating rush of love, and we've stayed on the path through crises and difficulties, and now we've opened up to the possibility of falling in love with each other again and again.''
