The Indian captain is not only known for his batting extravaganza but also for his social works. He has a great love for dogs which is sometimes seen by his posts and support in social media platform.
The star cricketer visited the Charlie’s Animal Rescue Centre (CARE) in Bengaluru on 16 April.
In a post on its Facebook page, CARE said that the cricketer was given a tour of the centre, during which he met the number of dogs who have been rescued by the members of the organisation.
According to the post, Kohli also ‘passively adopted’ 15 of them, including paraplegic, blind and chronically ill dogs. This means that he will undertake financial responsibility for these dogs and will be kept in the loop about their well being.
Founder trustee of CARE, Sudha Narayanan, accompanied Kohli and said,
“He met our adoption pups George and Snowy and said in no uncertain terms that rescued is his favourite breed. He hoped people would understand that it’s always better to adopt than to shop for a companion pet.”
Hope in near future he keeps on doing such social works and makes it count in a good cause.
He also has an old age home in Pune and also runs Virat Kohli Foundation. When it was started Virat said,
“It (Foundation) has been in my mind since very long time. But I was going through a transition phase, so could not start off with the venture. Now, I feel it’s the right time to get on with it,” Virat told during a promotional event to announce a football match between Bollywood stars and cricketers.
