New York Giants cornerback Logan Ryan certainly is taking care of his dogs, literally and figuratively, with his ‘My Cause, My Cleats.’ The former Rutgers football star wearing specially designed cleats that feature ‘Clifford the Big Red Dog.’

Ryan is raising awareness for ‘RARF‘ – the Ryan Animal Rescue Foundation that he founded. The Giants star defensive back is passionate about animals and rescues.

His passion for animals came from a dog named Leo that Ryan and his family had adopted early in his NFL career. Fairly early on in their relationship with Leo, he needed hip surgery, a process which began Ryan’s affinity for animals:

Logan often wondered what would have happened to Leo had he not been adopted by a family who had the resources and flexibility to take care of his medical needs. Would he have lived a life in pain? Would he have been returned to the rescue? Worse? What happens to other dogs in Leo’s situation?

In June of 2015, Logan woke up with an idea. He had been racking his brain for ways he could be more hands on in helping dogs like Leo. It was on that day that Ryan’s Monthly Rescue was born. Logan decided he would work with local rescues to identify a dog each month who was having difficulty finding a forever home. He would post photos of himself with the dog in need on his social media pages to spread the word. Ryan’s Monthly Rescue was a huge success right away and the New England community rallied around the idea.
