DAWG Foundation PSA: OC Pepper Spray Challenge

ADMIN NOTICE: We did not initiate, create, or otherwise schedule the pepper spray challenge…it has been going on long before we even heard of it, and for other charities…we are, however, addressing it here in this video. We would never presume to tell anyone what to do in the privacy of their own homes, or direct them how to spend their money. So, take this PSA as it is….a word of caution salted with humor. Thank you for understanding.
