Jarret Johnson Supports Anti-Animal Abuse Campaign

Pin It


The Baltimore Ravens may have lost the chance to go to the Super Bowl, but the team’s outside linebacker Jarret Johnson has won a place in the hearts of animal lovers for championing a paws cause.

The football star is one of the many sports heroes– including Adam Jones of the Baltimore Orioles, MMA fighter John Rallo, Dizzy Grant of the Harlem Globetrotters and NFL great Qadry Ismail– who have formed a huddle with the Mayor’s Anti-Animal Abuse Commission to help Baltimore’s pets in peril through participation in a Show Your Soft Side campaign.

The brutal attack of a Pit Bull in 2009 brought about the creation of the Baltimore Mayor’s Anti-Animal Abuse Commission, which is currently reaching out to adolescents through the Show Your Soft Side campaign in an attempt to change their impression that the mistreatment of animals is a mark of “manliness.”
