WATCH: Robbie Rogers Is Looking Out For Man’s Best Friend

It’s a dog’s world as far as Robbie Rogers is concerned. The out L.A. Galaxy midfielder is now a spokesperson for animal rights org PETA and in a new video (above) reminds pet owners how scary 4th of July fireworks can be to many animals.

“Fireworks displays cause many dogs and cats to flee in terror from the unpredictable and deafening blasts—jumping over fences and even breaking through windows, only to be injured, struck by a vehicle, or lost and never found,” Rogers says.

In an exclusive interview with PETA (below), Rogers also discusses adopting is dog, Jeffrey. “They need a lot of care and love, and you have to train them,” he says. “Jeffrey’s taught me a lot as well as I think I hopefully have taught him. … He’s such a great little character, and I love him so much.”

    If I wasn’t over this attention seeking media whore before, I am now. PETA is a fascist group. He can’t disappear into obscurity soon enough.

    Glad he is using his time trying to do something HE feels is useful. He could be out there doing things to harm others. Good for him.

    I consider myself an animal lover, and while I disagree with A LOT of what peta does, I do support some of it. But trust me, peta is not the spokesperson for all of us who believe in animal welfare and compassion. There’s many many amazing organizations that work to help dogs in need, rescuing them, spreading public awareness about compassion for animals. Many groups that have no funding yet we still do our good work and try to make a positive difference where we can

    Robbie is an incredible man based on all the interviews I’ve seen of him, and knowing a friend who met him. He’s kind,charming, gentle and sweet. I find the fascinating the most cruel commentary on this site is directed toward out gay men who are public figures (Niel Patrick Harris, Ricky Martin, Lance Bass, Adam Lambert)…there’s a segment of our population who sincerely hate out gay men who are mainstream and will rip on them every chance you get. Instead of asking why a gay celebrity is so often highlighted on a gay blog (novel idea, ey?) go ask yourself why you have so much self hate that you can only feel secure in yourself when you bash other gay men? Robbie isn’t going anywhere. He’s on a famous MLS team, with support, media attention, lots of fans and many years left in soccer. If the positive attention he gets upsets you…then you’ve got some wack priorities in your life that need some attending to. Go make yourself useful and go for a walk.
