Sandra Bullock might have taken home the coveted gold statue at last night's Academy Awards, but we've considered her a "best actress" for quite some time for her devotion to the paws cause.

Earlier this year, when she and husband Jesse James' beloved pit bull, CinnaBun, went missing, friends of the then Oscar-nominee noted that she'd rather have their pet back than win an Oscar. Happily for Sandra, she got both! But there's another reason pet lovers show Bullock such devotion; she's the mother of two special needs rescue pups, which she discussed today on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."

Poppy, a Chihuahua/Pomeranian mix, has three legs, and Ruby the Chihuahua has just two legs (you can see them both at PetSugar). And while they might be missing a limb or two, it's evident they're not missing any love.They are part of the extended family of animals in the Bullock/James household.

Bullock isn't the only acclaimed actor with a lot of love for her pets -- just last year, Mickey Rourke acknowledged his dogs in his Golden Globes acceptance speech, and showed up at the Oscars wearing a pendant with a picture of his dog, Loki, who had passed away less than a week before the event. And Amanda Seyfried, who presented last night, is completely in love with her new puppy.
