Soccer Superstar Helps Save Dozens of Dogs With the Stroke of a Pen

Cristiano Ronaldo, the golden boy forward player of the Portugal national team, just saved a financially struggling animal shelter with a simple signature.

The Cantinho da Lili in Gouveia houses 80 different dogs, the care and treatment of which can cost thousands of euros. When the shelter started having more and more trouble making ends meet, one of the volunteers – who allegedly has connections within the Ronaldo family – reached out to the football star for help.

Ronaldo sent the struggling shelter a signed Real Madrid jersey for auction. Since the striker is considered one of the best players in the entire soccer league, the jersey is an extraordinarily valuable gift.

“I want to thank Ronaldo from the bottom of my heart. It’s a simple gesture, but very important,” the shelter’s owner Liliana Santos told the CM Journal.
