How tennis star Denis Shapovalov helps animals

"We are excited to announce the official launch of ShapoShelter! Our mission is to highlight the needs of animal shelters and animals searching for their forever homes. Starting today, ShapoShelter will be supporting the initiatives of the Humane Society of Manatee County, the Humane Society of Greater Miami and Adopta Un Amigo Para Siempre in Mexico City.

How you can help: Adopt an animal in need from one of these shelters, donate directly to the shelters to help them care for the animals there, like, share and spread the word of our mission to give these animals a great life!" With these words Denis Shapovalov launched the ShapoShelter to take his commitment to a new level.

The new charity initiative created by the young Canadian tennis player will amplify the needs of animal shelters by focusing on the stories of dogs and cats living in difficult conditions.
