Grammy winning singer Duffy and former model Daisy Fuentes put their star power together to rescue a Pit Bull from an animal shelter.

British songbird Duffy saved one-year-old American Pit Bull Bronx by donating $1,000 to a Southern California shelter, Ace Of Hearts, just an hour before the dog was to be put down, according toTMZ.

After the 30-year-old's kind gesture, Daisy, 48, volunteered to offer a foster home to the dog and 'cover all the costs to get him ready for adoption.'

Duffy - real name Amie Ann Duffy - learned about Bronx 'through an online forum that stated he had one hour to live before the adoption center put him down.'

The Mercy hitmaker contacted the Ace Of Hearts facility in Orange County, which had previously advertised the dog's availability on its social media pages.

The shelter writes a brief description of Bronx on its website: 'He is very handsome and strong. Bronx is active and likes to play with toys. Loves treats, knows sit.'

Daisy - an animal activist herself - gushed about her adoption of Bronx as recent as March 29 when she shared with fans and followers that she had taken in the dog from the same shelter Duffy had saved him from death.

'She was looking to foster a pooch and fell in love when she met Bronx at Ace Of Hearts,' the gossip site noted.

In addition to giving the dog a temporary home, Daisy will also be 'potty training' him.

The former MTV VJ has been chronicling Bronx's growth and adoption process frequently on her social media pages in efforts to urge her fans to consider pet adoption.
