Did you know that Theo Rossi (Juan Carlos “Juice” Ortiz, Sons of Anarchy) has three dogs of his own? Inspired by his furbabies, he has launched a campaign to protect dogs out on the street (see related article below), working with both the Humane Society International and The Humane Society of the United States to put an end to canine homelessness. As we told you in July of last year, Theo is Street Dog Defender, and is using his campaign to encourage the public to be the same.
Statistically, more than 300 million dogs, both inside and outside of the United States live on the street today. Even more are forced to live out their days in shelters. Theo has made it his personal mission to change these numbers, and spends countless hours promoting awareness and working toward prevention strategies for these dogs. He’s aiding efforts for a street dog welfare program, where anyone can name a homeless dog and provide support for them.
We’ve found a video, where Theo Rossi talks about his dogs, as well as dishing on which of Juice’s tattoos were actually real. Check out the video below!
