Colin Campbell & George the Newfoundland (yes a dog)

Free Days with George Fundraiser with the Humane Society of Huron Valley Bountiful Bowls Program

Breed: Newfoundland
Age: 8 years
Special skill: surfing
Known for: sweet, gentle

Join us for this event and bring dry dog and cat food with you for donation to the Humane Society of Huron Valley Bountiful Bowls Program to help people keep their pets instead of surrendering them to a shelter.

It wasn't an easy start for George. Nobody wanted him... he had been abandoned and needed a home. He was scared and unsure of everything. He was rescued by a recently divorced marketing executive, who had a big, empty house and wanted to help him. Eventually, George's loving personality, and wisdom of an old soul emerges, and it becomes apparent that it is in fact George who rescues his new human friend...

George went from abandoned and homeless in cold rural Canada to a surfing Champion and local celebrity on the sunny beaches of California.

Free Days with George is his story.

Marketing executive, consumer engagement specialist, digital content producer, active athlete and animal advocate, Colin Campbell has a clear passion for work and life. He is thrilled with the opportunity to write this book and share his story of free days and the journey with his friend, George.

For over twenty years, Colin has built a solid marketing resume across Canada and the United States. He has worked with some of North America's leading agencies and sport organizations including MKTG, the National Hockey League Players' Association, MacLaren McCann and the Canadian Hockey League. He has held executive roles where he has developed and managed consumer engagement programs for brands such as General Motors, Nike, Verizon and Kraft. He has created and managed large scale nationally televised events to simple digital branded-content campaigns.

Bountiful Bowls Program

The Humane Society of Huron Valley understands that financial difficulty often means making a list of priorities. Frequently, animals are forced to be low on that list. HSHV's Bountiful Bowls pet food assistance program helps Washtenaw County and Plymouth residents who are having difficulty meeting the nutritional needs of their dog or cat due to financial burden.

Trying times can be temporary. With a little assistance, a pet owner can often find a way to keep their pet in their home.  bit.ly/1Ywz4TQ
