“Kiss You In The Morning” singer and animal advocate Michael Ray is putting money where his mouth is when it comes to helping his four-legged friends.

The Florida native, who launched Wrigley Cares: Helping Animals In Need earlier this year with his adopted dog Wrigley, has collected more than 100,000 meals for animals in need. The program has encouraged fans to drop off food at shelters along Michael’s tour route in the last few weeks.

Needless to say, Michael and Wrigley are pretty pleased with the results. “We set out to see how we can help animals in need and we are blown away by the huge response,” Michael says through his publicist. “When we’re on the road, we stop in each town and become a part of the community for a night while on stage. It’s inspiring to see the Get To You Tour can leave a lasting impression and feed so many shelter animals. Wrigley’s stoked, too.”

Michael has upcoming dates scheduled in Florida, North Carolina, Georgia and Pennsylvania. See a complete list of dates here.
