'Bachelor' Colton Underwood can't contain his love for dogs at Amazon's Treasure Truck Pup Fest: 'It's a good time'
Colton Underwood, from Season 23 of 'The Bachelor', is a big dog lover, something which was amply evident at Amazon Treasure Truck's Pup Fest on Sunday in Los Angeles. Underwood, who appeared at the fest with his adorable rescue pup Kane, spoke exclusively with MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) and shared his love for dogs and the importance of such events.
Speaking of his involvement with the event, he said, "Anything with dogs obviously is great! But the fact that Amazon's Treasure Truck is out here connecting not only dog owners but also connecting them with brands and bringing them quality food and information and socializing these dogs. Also, anytime you can get involved with dog communities and the dog families - It's a good time! "
Amazon Treasure Truck’s Pup Fest is an amusement park of activities and treats to celebrate dogs and dog owners, and is the ultimate destination for dog owners to find amazing offers for their four-legged pets that they can buy on the Amazon app and pick up at the Treasure Truck.
"It's days like today and being involved in events like these, just giving back to the community, being spontaneous but wanting to play a bigger role than just yours, whether that's with the children in the hospital at my foundation or promoting rescue dogs, even just connecting dog owners here like Amazon and the Treasure Truck are doing is just amazing," Underwood said.
Underwood, who runs the Colton Underwood Legacy Foundation, a non-profit to support and provide resources for people living with cystic fibrosis, also discussed how 'The Bachelor' helped him with a bigger platform.
"If there is one thing I've been totally honest and up-front with my production is that I've told them I want to be able to run my non-profit without any limitations to any contract we sign or whatever we do and they've been super supportive of that. Even being here today, they've been super supportive of what I've been doing prior to the show," he said.
He also said that the platform has enabled him to do everything he's dreamed of doing on a bigger scale. He also spoke how he's been running his non-profit for five years, visited hospitals and foundations and also the Rescue Day at the Humane Society at San Diego.
"You look around here and you see so many dog owners and so many awesome people and the chance to network and connect with them is truly amazing," he signed off.
'The Bachelor' seemed to have won not only our hearts but the ones of the dogs at the Pup Fest too!
