Professor Spends Day in Kennel with Dog
A local professor is spending 24 hours in a kennel with a dog.
He's trying to raise money for the Erie Humane Society while increasing awareness of the need to adopt pets. Chad Redmond teaches at Mercyhurst University.
But this weekend, he's behind bars, with a homeless dog named Deja.
We visited him several hours into his stay.
He says it's noisy but not too challenging. “I don't think there's been any challenges yet. I thought I was going to really struggle with boredom, but I’ve got Deja, so it's been fine,” Redmond said. Redmond will spend the night with the dog, then leave around 11 Sunday morning.
