Rob Reina has decided that he will not be adopting stray animals to be his pets as he has previously been known to do. Instead, he has concluded that it is only fair and reasonable to donate to animal causes. Having said this, Rob will donate more than one million dollars to go to animal causes. Currently, it is overwhelming for Reina to keep up with his pets as he has adopted eleven dogs and five cats. In fact, he has employed housekeepers to take care of these pets and tidy up the inevitable mess they make such as the pet hair.
Among the pets are three basset hounds-Presley, Blue Bell, and Stormy. He also has Bindi which lost a leg from an alligator attack before being rescued by Reina. Then there is a Labrador mix, Sport, who, as Reina describes, resembles a giraffe with a small head and long legs and neck. The stray and rescued cats adopted by Reina are Scrappy, Chance, Madison, Lucky, and Mystery. All these animals share the house with Reina who treats them as his children. Reina regards himself as an animal lover and says that he is very compassionate about helping them. He also acknowledges having an affinity for pets.
In the past, Reina was a Hillsborough County sheriff’s deputy. He started a small technology company known as Talk Fusion. Having been very successful in his career, Reina can easily afford to donate to animal causes in a big way (http://www.forbes.com/sites/quickerbettertech/2010/11/10/talk-really-can-be-cheap/#2924b32c4076). At the beginning of this year, he donated an amount worth $250,000 to the Humane Society of Tampa Bay. Currently, he is finishing up a donation worth $750,000. This money is meant for building vet clinics that will offer low-cost services to people who are unable to afford checkups, shots, diagnostic services, spay and neuter services for their pets.
According to the chief executive of the Bluepearl Veterinary Partners vet clinic group, Reina has more than one time personally catered for the bills of families who cannot afford lifesaving care for their pets. Reina confesses that he gets a hard time trying to balance between work time and his personal time. He says that he loves what he does and he finds himself investing most of his time helping his business grow. However, Reina has realized that he has to set aside time for everything-it is just what you have to do.
