NFL’s Logan Ryan Visits Animal Hospital That Saved His Dog’s Life

Share with fellow dog lovers!

While only time will tell who wins the big game when the San Francisco 49ers face the Kansas City Chiefs, 49ers safety Logan Ryan has already won the admiration of animal lovers for his ongoing efforts to help dogs and cats in need. The co-founder of The Ryan Animal Rescue Foundation recently teamed up with television journalist Katie Couric to shine a spotlight on an animal hospital that’s been a real game changer for ill and injured dogs and cats…including one of the four-legged members of Ryan’s own “home team.”

Adopted by the two-time Super Bowl champion back in 2014, Leo required multiple surgeries. When an infection set in after a hip surgery in 2019, Ryan rushed his Pit Bull buddy to a BluePearl pet hospital in Franklin, Tennessee, where surgery saved his life. 

Wanting to raise awareness of the vital work of BluePearl pet hospitals as well as highlight diversity among animal care givers, Ryan, his wife and RARF co-founder Ashley, and Katie Couric paid a visit to the animal hospital’s Clearwater, Florida branch for an episode of the digital series Unleashed with Katie Couric.
