Not long ago, basketball player Ron Artest (who now plays for the Sacramento Kings) was in the dog house over allegations from neighbors that he was leaving his Great Dane out in the yard without food and water for months at a time.
Artest was never charged and denied the allegations. Now, Artest is proving his love for man’s best friend by donating a nice amount of money to pay for the spay and neutering of 50 pit bulls and pit bull mixes.
According to the Sacramento Bee, Artest is scheduled to be at the Sacramento Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals on March 11 to greet dog owners as they bring their canines to participate in the organization’s pit bull spay-neuter program.
