Steven Seagal Sponsors Romanian Street Dog

In August, a 4-year-old boy in Bucharest was fatally mauled by one of the city’s many street dogs. In response to the tragedy, Parliament passed a law permitting Bucharest’s 64,000 stray dogs to be euthanized. Actor, Steven Seagal is bringing awareness to the high number of homeless dogs in the area and doing his part to help out by sponsoring a street dog in a shelter.

Seagal is currently in Romania filming “A Good Man.” Over the weekend, he visited an animal shelter south of Bucharest and “adopted” a 7-month-old black and tan puppy named Grivei through the shelter’s “long distance adoption” program, which works as a sponsorship. For 60 lei ($18) a month, the dog will be taken care of and remain in the Dogtown shelter.

“I am doing the best I can to bring awareness… so that we can make sure these accidents and tragedies don’t happen again,” Seagal told the press on Monday. He hopes to be an example for others to open their hearts and homes to adopt these unfortunate dogs.
