Huskies and Pugs alike take the mic in a recording studio in the Canadian charity Pet Trust’s release, We Could Be Heroes. (In a show of solidarity, even a cat makes an appearance.)
In the spirit of the USA for Africa video, which included the likes of Lionel Richie, Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Tina Turner and Bruce Springsteen, the canine video is voiced by Canadian pop and hip hop stars.

Pet Trust is dedicated to raising awareness about cancer in animals and to raising money for the treatment of animals with cancer at the Ontario Veterinary College Mona Campbell Animal Cancer Centre at the University of Guelph. Purina Canada has pledged to match donations to the charity up to $125,000.
According to Pet Trust, cancer claims the lives of 1 in 4 dogs and 1 in 8 cats.
