Making its rounds on Facebook this weekend, the video could be found on PETA's page, as well as numerous media pages, including The Today Show. To date, almost $2,000 has been raised to "save Pookie" from being Stauffer's dinner, with Pookie being the sole star of the video and at one point looking deeply concerned.
According to his Kickstarter.com campaign video, Stauffer is trying to raise $8,000 to finish his movie and hopes to do so by January 17, 2013. If he does not succeed in his raising these funds, he will be forced to eat the doggy out of pure necessity. Based upon his current stock of food, Stauffer will create some sort of spicy stuffed green pepper dish out of the animal.
"Unless I raise my goal, Pookie is going in my belly. She has been a good pet and she will be a great meal." - Stauffer
