Linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo of the Baltimore Ravens is the latest sports star to join the defensive team at the Baltimore Mayor’s Anti-Animal Abuse Advisory Commission.
A proud pet parent to a family of French Bulldogs, Ayanbadejo posed with his pal Buster for the commission’s “Show Your Soft Side” campaign, which has been created to change the opinions of impressionable adolescents who view the mistreatment of animals as a mark of manliness.
The portrait of compassion, which was captured on camera by photographer Leo Howard Lubow, will appear on billboards and flyers throughout the city of Baltimore.
