Alex loves dogs and would argue that his love is unmatched by anyone else. He volunteers at the local shelter and helps raise funds for the facility. When his big, fiftieth birthday approached, he had no doubt how he was going to spend that day.
He walked the dogs as a part of the fundraiser, one dog for each year of his life. The love for canines runs in the family and his sisters often help out with the same shelter. During their walks, dogs also learn important skills that make them adoptable.
- Alex Johns used his dog-walking to raise money for the Cincinnati Animal CARE Humane Society.
- The realtor group Team de la Vega agreed to match up to $5,000 in donations.
- Johns raised over $6,000, bringing the donation total for the nonprofit to over $11,000.
“Johns is a weekly dog-walking volunteer for the humane society, working with two of his sisters to give the animals some exercise.”
