Kohli adopts 15 canines at CARE

Virat spent his Easter morning at Charlie's Animal Rescue Centre, Bengaluru. He passively adopted 15 neediest dogs from the orphanage.

It's no secret that the India and Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli has a soft corner for dogs. He frequently posts photos with his beagle Bruno - the little wonder, on social media that left us in an awe of him.

On the 16th of April, Sunday morning, he stepped into a dog orphanage of Bengaluru, and watching him play with the adorable canines was an absolute delight!

The inmates at Charlie's Animal Rescue Centre – CARE, were surprised as Virat made a visit to the orphanage.

CARE shared on their facebook page "It was simply unbelievable this morning to see Virat Kohli's car pulling up inside the gates of CARE."

A founder trustee from CARE shared "All we knew was that a VIP would be visiting the Centre. We weren't told who. We were asked to keep the place free of any media and have no one there except the staff and trustees."

He was welcomed in CARE by a proxy and an adorable receptionist with a prompt pounce - Dash. That's right! Dash is a Labrador in the Centre with some special needs. To that they said "and the way he handled Dash and our other animals was amazing. He really loved animals, and it was lovely to see the way he interacted with them."

The captain's scheduled stay of 10 minutes turned into a 45 minute one as he gelled with the canines at CARE.

"He met our adoption pups George and Snowy and said in no uncertain terms that rescued is his favorite breed,"

His purpose of the visit was clear as they said "he wanted us to send out the message that dogs must be adopted on our Facebook page,Virat has passively adopted the 15 out of 50 dogs in special need from the shelter, those 15 that have special needs, that are paraplegic, blind and chronically ill.

CARE also said, "We wish the man with a golden heart, Virat Kohli loads of luck on all his endeavors and thank him for making the world a better place for animals."

He took off from CARE saying 'I couldn't do the things you people do' and delivered a promise of visiting the shelter again.
