It’s A Touchdown: The Wide World Of Football And Pet Charities

pet charitiesSeptember has arrived, and if you’re like 64% of Americans (and probably way more than that  in Texas!) this is the month you’ve been waiting for all year: the start of football season.

Besides the incredible athleticism and the fun (and, admittedly, stress) of competition, part of the irresistible draw of football is the players themselves and all the associated drama and legal mishaps. Although it can be easy and, let’s face it, a little bit fun to gossip and even judge them from time to time, your friends at Ten West have a different take on the subject.

As you prepare to hunker down with friends and family, surrounded by delicious food and cold beverages, we invite you to turn your thoughts away from the various wrongdoings of professional athletes and pay homage instead to the ones who go above and beyond to make the world a better place.

Football and pet charities may not seem like they go hand-in-hand, but it’s becoming increasingly common for players to take a special interest in needy pets, and to use their considerable influence to help the cause.
