Soccer Team Carries Shelter Dogs Onto Field To Help Them Find Forever Homes [Video]


  • The Russian professional soccer team wanted to raise awareness for animal shelters and pet adoption.
  • Local shelters brought the Zenit team a bunch of dogs who need forever homes.
  • The soccer players walked out onto field carrying shelter dogs so they can have a chance for adoption.

When the Russian soccer team Zenit decided to help raise awareness for shelters and pet adoption, they tried to come up with the best way to get their message across. They absolutely succeeded.

Instead of just making some videos or something about their cause, the team decided to do something a little more personal. They teamed up with some local shelters, who brought them a bunch of dogs who need homes.

Then, the players walked out onto the field at the start of a game, each carrying an adorable shelter pup.

The dogs ranged in size and fluffiness, and while some of them seemed a little confused, they were all perfectly happy to get some cuddles regardless of where that was happening.

The whole thing was pretty adorable, from the dogs themselves to the looks on the players’ faces as they held them. There’s probably no better way to promote pet adoption than this.

Hopefully, some of these dogs will find their forever homes because of this event, and regardless, everyone’s fingers are crossed that the Zenit soccer team will do this again soon.
