It was already nice story about a cute kid named Adley, but today it became a nice story for animal lovers.

The little boy’s father Aaron said he planned to buy a shelter dog, which sparked an idea.

Two nights later, the Canucks sold a limited number of #hotdogHorvat t-shirts and hot dogs at Rogers Arena, with 100% of proceeds going to the BC SPCA.Ā One person told me the Team Store was sold out of the t-shirts more than 40 minutes before game time, while the hot dogs sell themselves.

Well the results are in, andĀ the Canucks managed to raise $5,695 for a greatĀ cause.

Daily Hive spoke to AaronĀ this week, who said heĀ isĀ on a waiting list with BC SPCA for a local short-haired male daschund wiener dog.
