Daniel Johns and Chris Cheney have joined forces to raise funds and awareness for WSPA’s recently launched ‘Collars not Cruelty’ campaign, to help convince the world to stop killing dogs in response to rabies and instead use mass vaccination to protect entire communities.
Both musicians have launched an exclusive competition giving you the chance to win an Epiphone Les Paul Studio guitar, signed by them and kindly donated by The Gibson Foundation.
Daniel said, “This is something we could do on a selfless level, as soon as Chris and I heard about WSPA’s campaign and the 20 million dogs brutally slaughtered every year, we knew we had to ‘man up’ and do something about it.”
To enter the competition visit www.dollarsforcollars.org.au and buy a virtual collar for just $10, then tell us in 25 words or less why dogs mean the world to you. Two exclusive videos will then be unlocked featuring Daniel and Chris, one a more serious insight into the inhumane culling of dogs around the world, the other a candid and fun quiz where Daniel and Chris answer a series of dog-related questions.
All entries will be judged by Daniel and Chris and the most creative answer will win this fantastic piece of rock history. Plus, there are also some fantastic runner-up prizes to be won!
Chris said, “The vital funds raised at www.dollarsforcollars.org.au will ensure that WSPA can campaign to let people know that vaccination and not culling, is the solution to the rabies problem. Upon vaccination these dogs are given red collars and communities then know that these dogs are safe from the disease, this is a noble and practical solution and you can help make it a success.”
