Looks like the New Girl took home some new girls of her own.

Zooey Deschanel rescued a pair of pooches from Los Angeles’s Bill Foundation, she announced on Twitter Wednesday.

“I have to thank the #billfoundation for the greatest, sweetest, most wonderful dogs in the world,” she wrote of her canine companions, whom she named Zelda and Dot. “Apples of my eye!”

For Deschanel, her new additions come as no surprise.

“I want a dog so much,” she said in 2011. “I want something cute to hang out with and hug.”
