Oprah's back – on the big screen, that is – in The Butler.

Now there's a gift bag with bite!
Terrence Howard helped auction off an adorable puppy on Oct. 17 during the Alfred Mann Foundation Gala in Santa Monica, Calif. The actor was placed in charge of caring for the Cavapoo during the evening, which aimed to raise funds for individuals suffering from debilitating medical diseases. Howard spent so much time with the pup that he even expressed difficulty in handing it over after a winner had been chosen.
While Howard has no pets of his own, he has put his love of animals on display at past events. Perhaps it's time he considered expanding his brood?

PEOPLE is giving you a sneak preview of Oscar-nominee Terrence Howard's debut album, Terrence Howard – Me and the Band of Kings, before it hits stores September 2.
The album, the actor's first foray into music, is a mix of soft pop-rock and jazzy tunes that Howard wrote (or co-wrote) about love, relationships and self reflection, and even features Howard playing the guitar on some tracks.
"Music has always been the road that leads to where I'm headed. Film is my vocation, my 9 to 5. In the movies, I'm doing what somebody else is asking me to do," Howard explains. "Music is my own personal form of expression. My responsibility, like the sun's, is to shine. Even if the planet is covered with clouds, I must say what I have to say."
