It's no secret birthday girl Nikki Reed is a total animal lover. Aside from being an animal rights activist, she's the brains behind a Peta-approved, cruelty-free bag line in collaboration with Freedom of Animals and she also volunteers at animal shelters in her free time. Today, Reed turns 28—and we can't believe all she's accomplished at such a young age.
On Instagram, the actress, who's perhaps best known for having starred in The Twilight Saga, regularly shares her passion for animals. Often pictured in photos with her actor hubby, Ian Somerhalder, 37, Reed and her man are always up to some "do-gooder" activity—and usually said activities involve the cutest animals possible. See for yourself in photos below.
