Los Angeles: After pleading guilty to cocaine possession following her arrest in August, socialite Paris Hilton will reportedly begin her court-ordered community service in the next couple of weeks.

A source close to her has said that the 29-year-old heiress will probably serve the community work by devoting herself to animals, reported Radar Online.

"Paris will most likely be doing her community service at a local animal shelter, or working with animals," the source said. Hilton has also been warned by her friends and family "not to bring home the stray animals because she can``t stand to see an animal in distress.

" She recently brought home 20 rabbits from a pet store to prevent them from becoming snake food. Hilton also visited sick kids at The Children``s Hospital in Los Angeles, in a bid to put her cocaine arrest behind her.

On her Twitter page, she has also revealed her plan "to do art" with the children this week. "Paris gets so much from the time she spends with the children.

Paris has such admiration for the brave parents that are dealing with so much," said the source. Hilton formally entered the guilty plea to drug-related misdemeanour on September 20.

She also pleaded guilty to the charge of lying to a police officer as following her August arrest, she claimed the purse in which cocaine was found did not belong to her.
