MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) – Volunteers at Rescue Me Tampa were shocked when their plea for adoption was answered by ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ actor Dave Bautista.

Rescue Me Tampa sent out a desperate plea after someone had abandoned two pit bulls.

The 6-year-old pit bulls, Maggie and Ollie, were handed over to the county after their owner had a baby.

Volunteers from Rescue Me Tampa wrote a post seeking someone who would take both dogs, writing they’d been together their whole life.

That was last month. A week later, the group posted a picture of the star hugging the two pups and announcing he had adopted them.

The rescuers said Bautista is spoiling the rescue dogs with Tempur-Pedic dog beds, a large gated property and doggy doors everywhere.

Rescue me Tampa is comprised of a group of volunteers who bring awareness to the hundreds of abandoned pets who need furever homes.

Volunteers posted the following on their Facebook page regarding the adoption:

“They hit the DOGGIE LOTTERY!!! Their new Daddy is actor/wrestler Dave Bautista. HAPPY TAILS MAGGIE AND OLLIE.”
