Dogs Sing for a Cure in Canadian Campaign Against Animal Cancer Helped by one magnanimous cat

Dogs "sing" a "We Are the World"-esque power ballad in this ad for Pet Trust, a Canadian organization that's trying to end animal cancer as we know it. Thankfully, they're not joined by Sarah McLachlan at any point. I like that the sound engineer is a cat, because in real life cats are jerks who would totally screw up the vocal mix on purpose just to prove a point. It would probably pee on the microphone covers, too. Print work and credits below.
