Toby, a Chesapeake Bay retriever, is the star of several books, an upcoming DOGumentary, and a kindness mission that will go global in 2015. Professional speaker and award winning/best selling author Charmaine Hammond (and Toby’s pet parent) is the author and creator of this endeavour "however, Toby is really the amassadog for kindness and making a difference," says Hammond.

Team Toby is preparing for the second leg of the tour in Saskatchewan and Manitoba Canada in October, which is bully prevention month and animal adoption month. "We just completed the first leg of the tour in Alberta and British Columbia and the impacts and results were incredible. More than 3.5 million were reached through traditional media and an estimated 10 million reached through social media, presentations, contests and videos during the 42 day tour. More than 1000 students helped make a difference through participating in kindness acitvities and more than 4,000 cut out pawprints were purchased to support the philanthropic aspect of the tour, supporting Orange Dog Foundation and schools," adds Hammond.

It takes a team to make a difference and that is exactly why Team Toby has welcomed another staffer into the mix. "We are thrilled to have Julie Angeletti join Team Toby," says Hammond. "Julie, a talented marketing graduate, comes to the team as a big dog lover having volunteered for the SPCA in Montreal, and various adoption events. She is also a pet parent of a lovable four legged family member. Her passion for animals, making a difference, and her extensive experience in event planning makes her perfect fit for our team," reports Hammond.

"Working with animals has always been a passion of mine, and I am quite lucky to have crossed paths with Charmaine! I am absolutely thrilled to be part of such a caring and positive organization and I look forward to making a change in the lives of both children and animals alike," says Angeletti about her new role with Team Toby and the PAWS Across Canada tour.
Team Toby will be visiting Saskatchewan and Manitoba in October, and Julie has already started to line up events and activities along the way. "We are excited about the energy, innovation and ideas that Julie is bringing to this tour!"
