American actor Chris Evans urged people to adopt rescue dogs
American actor Chris Evans is a strong supporter of adoption from shelters. Dodger, his dog, was one of those doggies waiting for their luck in their cage. He used National Pet Day, celebrated on Wednesday, to put the light on his meeting with his 4-legged companion.
Many personalities regularly speak out for the adoption of animals living in shelters. The American actor Chris Evans, especially known for playing the superhero Captain America on the big screen, is one of them. Last year, the native of Sudbury, Massachusetts, introduced his dog Dodger to his many followers through a tweet.
Dodger was living in a shelter when Chris Evans saw him for the first time. The latter was then in full filming.
Since adopting it, Dodger has appeared on most of his Twitter posts. He holds a prominent place in his life and the artist never fails to make it known.
This year, on the occasion of the National Pet Day, celebrated on April 11th, Chris Evans posted a very special video for him: it immortalizes, indeed, the moment he meets Dodger for the first time.
This is the moment we met. He was trying so hard to stay seated even though he desperately wanted to get out. I knew right away that he was coming home with me, so I took this video to always remember our first hello. Rescue dogs are the best dogs!! #NationalPetDay pic.twitter.com/XjWxPWGDPu
