This man decided to celebrate his 50th year of life by supporting a shelter.
An animal lover has made it his mission to walk 50 dogs from a shelter to celebrate his 50th birthday this spring. He also organized a fundraiser to help the organization.
On their birthday, some people prefer to simply blow out the candles. This year, Alex Jones decided to celebrate his 50th birthday in a different way by supporting the local union.
Driven by his love for animals, the American volunteered at the shelter some time ago. “You probably know that I love dogs more than people. That’s why I volunteer to walk my dogs every week at Cincinnati Animal CARE with two of my three sisters,” she wrote on Facebook.
But on his birthday, he set himself a special goal.
50 years old, 50 dogs
A man with a big heart started a social media fundraiser by inviting his friends and family to donate. And the result exceeded all his expectations.
The $5,000 mark (about €4,400) has been pretty much passed… According to one of the organization’s recent Instagram posts, around $12,000 (or €10,600) has been raised to “help with the work.”
People magazine reported that the volunteer “had fun” walking 50 of his furry friends in one day. Determined efforts to educate the public about the adoption of orphaned animals.
