Simon Cowell surprised his audience with a special guest: one of the dogs he rescued from a slaughterhouse

Simon Cowell is best known for his role as a harsh, vile television competition judge, but he has a kind heart, especially when it comes to animals.

He used his own money to help close down one of the most heinous threats to dogs: slaughterhouses and meat markets.

He gave tens of thousands of pounds to Humane Society International in support of their efforts to close a dog farm.

Hundreds of dogs were saved because of him.

During one of the programs, he specifically addressed the issues that face dogs.

The star then brought out his puppy, one of the dogs rescued from a slaughterhouse.
