For You

We can’t get enough of Amy Poehler.

Besides her impressive resume in the entertainment industry – actor, producer, director… the list goes on — Poehler is also one of the women behind  “Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls,” an organization that looks to help young people empower themselves.

“We emphasize intelligence and imagination over “fitting in.” We celebrate curiosity over gossip,” the website states. “We are a place where people can truly be their weird and wonderful selves.”

Their latest project is a web series called “Heavy Petting!” Teaming up with the ASCPA, the show looks to help adorable dogs find their forever home. Poehler got a little help from some of her famous friends, who lent their voices to the pups looking to be adopted.

First up is John Mulaney. Known for being a comedian and a writer on SNL, his latest role has him being the  voice of Bart, a 10-month high-energy dog that is looking for a great family. In an amusing tone, Mulaney lets us know that Bart has 79 toys but only plays with two, is extremely active and loves Cheerios.

It has been reported that Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, and Aziz Ansari will also lend their voice to this cause.
