James Laurinaitis is the middle linebacker for the New Orleans Saints.  James is a true warrior, starting in every game of the first seven years of his professional career.  James departed the St. Louis Rams ranking 1st on the Rams all-time tackles list.  Hailing from Minnesota, where he also excelled at hockey, James played college football at Ohio State University where he was named an All-American and the nations best defensive player.  James and his wife Shelly, also an OSU grad, were married in March of 2013 and have a daughter named London.  Their home is filled with four dogs; two Rottweiler’s, Titus and Grace, and two Morkie’s, Maya and Louie.  James and Shelly find comfort and companionship daily with their four amazing pets.  James says, “We wanted to get involved because we know how much our dogs give and receive love, so I want to spread the message that being a responsible pet owner is not an option, it is a necessity.”  When they’re not watching sports, enjoying time with friends and family, or looking for the next best restaurant, James and Shelly are home relaxing with their dogs. “Playing with our dogs is truly one of our favorite hobbies, joining A4A was a no-brainer for us!”
