Torrey Smith Joins Anti-Animal Abuse Campaign

Scoring a touchdown with dog devotees, football star Torrey Smith– wide receiver for the Baltimore Ravens– tackles the topic of animal abuse by showing his support for the Show Your Soft Side campaign.

Hoping that positive images of role models with their pets will have the power to change the perception of Baltimore’s misguided adolescents, who look upon the mistreatment of animals as a sign of manliness, an array of the city’s top sports stars have teamed up with The Mayor’s Anti-Animal Abuse Task Force for a series of posters, billboards and print ads photographed by Leo Howard Lubow.

Following in the footsteps of the San Diego Chargers’Jarret Johnson (who previously played for the Ravens) and fellow Raven Brendon Ayanbadejo, Torrey Smith proudly posed for the paws cause with his Pit Bull pal, Prince.
