Actor and dog lover Jonathon Goldsmith is a Manchester, Vermont resident made famous by his role in the Dos Equis beer commercials. But he's also a dog lover hoping to raise funds for the Denver-based Morris Animal Foundation, which promotes veterinary research for companion animals, horses and wildlife.
Goldsmith made an online commercial with his Anatolian shepherd Willy as part of a fund raising campaign by the Manchester-based Orvis Co., which has a popular dog catalog. Goldsmith lost a dog to cancer and was happy to support this campaign.
The Morris Animal Foundation hopes to raise $250,000.00 this year, and has raised almost $1 million since the campaign started back in 2009. The program asks dog owners to enter photos of their dogs into the Orvis Cover Dog Contest for Morris Animal Foundation. They will raise money by getting fans to donate $1 for each vote. The Million Dollar Dog Sweepstakes will end on 15 February 2014.
