Los Angeles, CA — YouTube star, Elton Castee plans to live in a dog kennel to raise money for Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles (spcaLA). Castee will enter the kennel at 12noon Sunday, August 27th and vows to remain there until he raises $100,000 for the organization.
Castee will sleep, eat, and broadcast live from kennel #420 at the spcaLA PD Pitchford Companion Animal Village & Education Center in Long Beach, the same animal shelter he adopted his beloved dog, Sparta who passed away in 2016. Castee’s time in the kennel can be viewed 24/7 on his
YouTube channel and viewers can donate via the spcaLA website.
Castee’s videos have been viewed over 100 million times on YouTube with a total of 1.3 million subscribers over two channels. His videos have been featured on MTV’s Ridiculousness, TruTV’s Top 20 Funniest, iFunny, Break, The Chive and more. Throughout the broadcast, special guests will join Castee to assist him in his quest, and friends and fans are invited to visit him during the fundraiser.
“We enjoy hearing innovative ideas, so when Elton approached us, we thought it could be an interesting way to raise money and awareness for spcaLA,” said Madeline Bernstein, President spcaLA. “We hope that Elton will be comfortable in his accommodations and will meet his goal.”
