Man raises money for dogs by playing music

WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - Johnny Blecher has a passion for both music and dogs.

A few years ago he decided to combine the two and started "Music and Mutts."

Almost every weekend, Blecher packs up his guitar, performs and fosters dogs and plays live music for donations to help support the organization.

He said it was his first foster dog that kept him wanting to continue to fight for the cause.

"We became friends right off the bat," said Blecher. "Falling in love with her and what she gave me and it just totally took over my life."

Music for Mutts is partnered with a local thrift shop that gives some of its proceeds to different pet fostering organizations.
