Team India and Team Bengaluru captain Virat Kohli had a very fulfilling Easter Sunday. Kohli is known for his love for dogs visited the Charlie’s Animal Rescue Centre (CARE) in Bengaluru on 16 April and spent nearly an hour with the dogs and cats there.
After Royal Challengers Bangalore lost to Rising Pune Supergiant on Sunday, Kohli made his way to a dog welfare shelter in Bangalore. He spent time with them to overcome the post-injury stress and a packed-to-the-rafters cricket schedule.
In a post on its Facebook page, CARE said “It was simply unbelievable this morning to see Virat Kohli’s car pulling up inside the gates of CARE.” Reportedly, Kohli has adopted 15 dogs with special needs.
“His love for dogs is common knowledge, and the fact that we happened to witness it in its purest form was a wonderful, indescribable feeling. He met Dash at the reception, said hello to Captain, walked around the entire place, keenly listening to our Founder trustee Miss Sudha Narayanan and Dr Lohith talk about CARE.
“We wish the man with a golden heart, Virat Kohli loads of luck on all his endeavours and thank him for making the world a better place for animals.”
