An Indiegogo campaign seeking justice for two year-old German shepherd Captain has raised upwards of $72,000, which is more than seven times its monetary goal. Radio personalities from Virgin 93.5’s Nat and Drew Show in Vancouver, BC started the initiative in memory of the shepherd after he was found clinging to life in a dumpster July 18. A police-dog reject deemed “too-friendly” for the force, Captain was brought to a veterinary team who worked tirelessly as he went into cardiac arrest and eventually passed away July 19. The campaign, which originally sought $10,000 for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals to investigate, gather evidence, and prosecute his case, has had an overwhelming outpouring of support and hopes to bring the dog’s abuser to justice.
