Carrie Underwood is a true animal lover in every sense of the word. She loves all creatures and critters equally. The 'Blown Away' singer tweeted a photo of a baby chipmunk she rescued from a terrifying fate: the jaws of her dog, Ace.

Underwood shared a picture of the adorable little critter cradled in a pair of hands. "Meet Dale. My dog, Ace, tried to eat him today!" she posted. "Good news: the vet does take care of chipmunks and Dale is doing fine!"

We're glad to hear that Dale escaped certain death and that he is doing well. Though, it seemed to surprise many that Underwood actually took a chipmunk -- which aren't really pets -- to a vet, but she did. She acknowledged the unusual nature of her action, but hey, she was looking out for the little guy! She doesn't plan to keep him as a pet, however. She will return him to the wild, far, far away from Ace.

"And yes, I did take a chipmunk to the vet. And no, I'm not keeping him!" Underwood revealed. "He will be released into a different yard with no Ace to chase him!"

The animal kingdom is lucky to have a human advocate like Carrie Underwood looking out for all members of its population, big and small. She's also pretty kind to her fellow humans, as well. Case in point: Giving a 12-year-old fan his very first kiss recently -- onstage, no less.
