Being an animal lover is more than simply donating to an animal charity each year. Being an animal lover is also rescuing those animals who are in need. If you are driving and see a stray kitten, do you pick it up and take it home? Do you feel bad for it and keep on driving? If you choose to stop and pick it up, you are a true animal lover, and possibly an animal hoarder if you have too many, joking aside. For Bob Reina, he was raised to be an animal lover and has worked hard to help other animals less fortunate than the ones he currently houses.
Bob loves animals so much that he must keep two housekeepers to cleanup behind the dogs in his home. The housekeepers are forced to rid the house of pet dander and pet hair, day after day. In fact, if he was to bring another animal into the home, he would have to hire on a third housekeeper.
With Bob’s help, there are five less dogs in shelters or still roaming around trying to find a place to stay dry on rainy days. The five less dogs also join a number of stray cats, all under one roof. For Bob, the task of helping animals comes easy to him. When a stray pup came along following an alligator attack, missing one leg, it was no question of whether or not he will bring in the pup. It was an easy question and he quickly came to the aid of the pup. Learn more: http://jimmyezzell.com/who-is-bob-reina/
Before Bob was an animal saver, he worked at the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s department. Going from protecting people to protecting animals was an easy transfer for Bob Reina. It now is not only his goal to help those who enter his home but he also helps those in the humane society of Tampa Bay where he donated a million dollars this last year. He started out at the beginning of the year with a donation of $250,000 and then followed it up with another donation of $750,000 to help them build a vet clinic that will be used by the less fortunate animal owners.
