Phillies catcher Cameron Rupp is well known about town for his animal-related good works.
Over the summer, Rupp raised $30,000 for the Pennsylvania SPCA during Ruppapalooza, a charity event that featured Phillies bartenders, raffles, games, music and more — along with adoptable dogs.
The PSPCA is one dog lighter this week, too, as Rupp has become dog dad to a 2-year-old cane corso who was left tied up outside the PSPCA headquarters in North Philadelphia toward the end of the baseball season.
Rupp has named her Lola and she joins sister Frito, a boxer-pitbull mix, and brother Chief, an Italian mastiff, as the newest member of the family.
Rupp does a lot of good work for the PSPCA, often paying dogs’ adoption fees. You can follow him (and thusly his dogs) on Instagram.
