VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) — The crew from TV’s Batwoman is coming together to gather donations for the Kamloops SPCA, which has been overwhelmed with hundreds of misplaced, or displaced animals following the Lytton wildfire.

The series is largely filmed in and around Vancouver, and is hoping people will help them muster a heroic response on Friday.

Mike Howorun is a location scout for the program, and says they reached out to the branch and were told the need for help was “dire,” and “immediate.”

“For the last few years, a number of people in the industry have gotten together for a softball league that supports the SPCA, and given this year, what happened in Lytton, our location manager reached out to the Kamloops SPCA to see exactly how we could help.”

Howorun says there a specific numbers they are looking for.

“Such as dog food, cat food, both dry and wet, leashes, dog bowls, toys, some of the things we don’t even think about with pets, like towels,” says Howorun.

There has also been a GoFundMe set up for monetary donations.

He says they will be collecting the donations at the North Plaza of the Vancouver Art Gallery, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“Vans have been donated, and the goal is to get as many of these donations up there this weekend, as we can,” explains Howorun. “It felt like a worthy cause to jump to action on.”
