Motley Zoo Animal Rescue has named HUNDREDS of adoptable pets after rock stars, but it's not every day a rock star adopts one of them.

Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil and his wife Jenny just brought home one of Motley Zoo's rescues, and even with masks on, you can tell this is one happy family. 

ADOPTED!!! ⭐️---- Seattle friends Jenny and Rock God @nudedragonsofficial KIM THAYIL found love in a black mutt named Eve!-- 2 year old Eve was recently surrendered to MZAR as her people could no longer take care of her...which was great timing for HER as Jenny had been in contact with us looking for a dog! After a week of fostering, Jenny & Kim decided to adopt & Eve hit the JACKPOT-- We’re so happy to see this sweet girl go to such a loving and supportive home where she will learn to shine like the true Rock Star she is.⭐️ Thank you Kim & Jenny for your support...we freaking love you. ------
