He is spending 12 nights at the kennel to raise awareness and donations needed for the K9 Crusaders charity.
Watch Adrian talks about his plan for Christmas and his preparation for the 12 days!
Adrian Thompson, a volunteer for K9 Crusaders, wants to help shelter dogs. He made up his mind to spend 12 days as a way of raising awareness for these dogs and to raise donations for them.
Thompson is changing his job for these days from a financial adviser to a pet sitter by night. The 48-year-old kind man will share the kennel of adoptable dogs in the shelter every day. He has already started his plan and is intended to continue until 28 December.
He will take part in the fundraiser event by being locked inside a concrete kennel from 8 pm to 8 am. He then gets home to shower, change clothes, and eat. Thompson is planning to spend every single spare moment with the dogs.
He will spend the 12-hour night in a sleeping bag on a concrete floor. He will eat from dog bowls including a Christmas feast of Brussels sprouts. What is worrying Thompson is his sciatic nerve pain, but he said that the cause is worth the pain.
Thompson started his plan for the 12 days by sharing the kennel with the first adoptable dog, Bertie the Jack Russell Terrier.
K9 Crusaders Dog Welfare is located in Bissoe, TRURO, Cornwall in the UK. Sue Smith, the other volunteer, explained in the video that Cornwall is not considered to be a place that pays attention for dog’s welfare. She wanted to point out the role Adrian is making in terms of raising awareness for dogs there.
SHARE and thank Thompson for his kind effort for these homeless dogs!
