Kaley Cuoco Spends 30th Birthday Volunteering At An Animal Sanctuary

Kaley Cuoco is a shining star, especially these days as she readjusts to life as a single woman. She also just turned the big 3-0 on Monday. She has been working hard to support animals in need, recently hosting the big All-Star Dog Rescue Celebration along with Hillary Swank and Emmy Rossum. According to People, Cuoco spent her big day visiting the animal sanctuary run by the Black Jaguar White Tiger foundation. It was at the sanctuary that she could get hands-on with the animals, visiting with big cats and playing with the baby kitties.

After the visit she went to Instagram to post about how much she enjoyed the day.

She captioned the photo, which showed her looking out over the animal sanctuary, with many thanks to her fans and God, and said it was her best birthday ever.

“Today was the best birthday I have ever had… Thank you for all the love and best wishes… My heart is overwhelmed with joy and complete contentment. There have been a few bumps along the way, but thank you God, nothing I can’t handle.”

She also thanked her friends who came along on the adventure, and the animal sanctuary for its work in animal rescue.

“Thank you to my precious little angels who accompanied me on this trip and gifted me with something so special (they know what I’m referring to) thank you to Eddie @blackjaguarwhitetiger@paulcheca for showing us your beautiful sanctuary- how you have saved these animals from abusive, confined lives and now they are living a life they never could have dreamed of..you are the reason this planet will change.”

Perez Hilton reports that one of the people who spent the day with Kaley Cuoco was her sister, Briana.

Clearly sombreros and a piñata were also involved.

Also along on the trip were Amy Davidson, Ali Fedotowsky from The Bachelorette, and Lacey Chabert from Mean Girls. It looks like they all had such a great time.

CBS News reports that Ali Fedotowsky also had a wonderful day.

“… the most epic, memorable, fun, once in a lifetime trip!!”

This special time comes for Kaley Cuoco after a grueling year in which she filed for divorce from her husband, Ryan Sweeting. She had a hard road with Sweeting and Us Weekly reported in October that an insider revealed the reason for the divorce was that Cuoco could no longer tolerate his drinking and abuse of prescription pills.

“She supported him. But she said he couldn’t make the commitment to get sober. He’d tell her he was working on it, and instead go get wasted.”

She might be getting divorced and getting a fresh start as a single woman, but there are already rumors that Kaley Cuoco is getting back in the dating scene, particularly the online dating scene. According to OK! Magazine, a source said that Cuoco has been browsing online dating sites.

“Kaley’s been browsing dating sites using a friend’s photo and has even met a couple of guys for drinks.”

The source also said that Kaley Cuoco is looking to distract herself from her failed marriage.

“She wants to be distracted from her failed marriage. She needs a man to show her a good time and tell her she’s a catch.”

Surely Kaley Cuoco can get any man she wants. She is definitely a catch. She certainly seemed to be glowing on her birthday as she surrounded herself with family and friends. That is definitely the way to go.

Happy Birthday, Kaley Cuoco!
