The story of Captain, the German shepherd, has struck a chord.
The two-year old dog was found badly hurt in a Kitsilano dumpster last week and died of his injuries shortly after.
Community support continues to grow as the BC SPCA investigates.
Seven-year-old Stella McWilliam stood with a poster board on the seawall between the Granville and Cambie street bridges.
“My goal is to pet 1,000 dogs. … I'm going to give fifty cents to the SPCA in memory of Captain."
The girl’s $500 objective may seem like a lot, but as her parents note, each SPCA investigation can cost up to $10,000 to complete.
“You really have to take care of your pets,” she adds.
