Alan Belcher will sit in a kennel to save puppies

Coming off a big win at Ultimate Fight Night 25, Alan Belcher could sit back and enjoy the big win, or he could sit inside a dog's kennel in Mississippi to encourage pet adoptions. Belcher has chosen to do that latter. To the press release:

On Friday, October 14, Alan "The Talent" Belcher will be at Humane Society of Southern Mississippi's facility on Hwy 49 to promote pet adoption in conjunction with HSSM's efforts in the ASPCA $100K Challenge. Belcher will be locked inside one of Humane Society's kennels i.e. "the cage" and available for autographs and photo opportunities to adopters starting at 2pm. Belcher will not be released from his kennel until HSSM has completed 50 adoptions (or 8 p.m., whichever comes first.)

The catch is that you can get a picture or autograph with Belcher if you adopt a pet, but that sounds like a win-win. You get to meet Belcher and you get a pet. Plus, adoptions will be discounted on Oct. 14, meaning you can adopt a dog or a cat for less than $20.

Bottom line: Puppies are awesome, and Belcher is awesome for sitting in a kennel to advocate for them. Find out more about the event here.

UPDATED: Read on for more pictures of Belcher, a 17-6 fighter with 8 knockouts or TKOs, become a total softie for his dog.

I use to work in an animal shelter and after seeing all the awful things people did to dogs. My support goes out to anyone who wants to help the weak.

Big fan of Belcher and this does nothing but help that

Adopted dogs make great pets and seem to just be more loving than a free puppy for some reason. Kudos to Alan

Belcher just moved way up in my books. I always thought he came across like a bit of a douche but turns out he is a good shit.

I was always a fan but now I like him a lot more, animal cruelty and shelters are the worst.
