Ollie was adopted a year and a half ago (Not through Secondhand Hounds, but still) and has since appointed himself King of his household.
Per his royal decree, we're fundraising for SHH, since he doesn't have opposable thumbs which makes it difficult and time consuming for him to do it himself using that Facebook Machine those millennials are always on. Also, his humans want to eat donuts while pretending to exercise.
King Oliver Theodore the Stinky will not be present at the event due to his being a grumpy old man. He has no further comments at this time, and attending media may only ask follow-up questions if a treat is first deposited into his food bowl as penance.
Thank you for your prompt attention to King Oliver's demands.
