As part of her commitment to finding animals a good home, Villaseñor partnered with Clear the Shelters and designed a t-shirt starring her and her dog Penny. 100% of the net proceeds go to Greater Good and Clear the Shelters funds.
“No relationship really lasts for me the past years, especially with ‘SNL.’ I’m always heartbroken,” said “Saturday Night Live” actress Melissa Villaseñor. “I would speak with Cecily [Strong], and Cecily said, ‘I think everyone on the cast should have a dog.’”
The number one reason? “They’re just too soft,” says “Saturday Night Live’s” Melissa Villaseñor. “You don’t want soft things around you, do you? You need rough things.” She would know—her rescue Penny is very soft.
