Fans of the Funday PawPet Show dug deep this week, raising over $10,000 for the regular four-hour puppet show in a fundraiser spanning two broadcasts.

The show's initial goal of $6,000 was reached shortly into the second show. $10,052 was raised by the closing song.[1] Last year, $3,940.19 was donated.

The show's website lists over 120 separate donators.[2] Many are regulars of the show's IRC channel, which topped a record 237 simultaneous users in the last hour.

The largest sum came from T. H. Squirrel, who paid $1,400 for an acrylic commission donated by Herbie Bearclaw.[3] Many other auctions took place, including five fursuiters who offered to accompany donators to the Midwest FurFest 2007 dance, a sketch by Chilly, and the promise of a new Fluff & Such video. A partial fursuit from Media raised $350.

The funds raised will go towards licensing fees, miscellaneous operating expenses - including gas money for cast members - and a upgrade for the show's aging computer hardware.[4][5] The show is also moving its start time back two hours to 5PM EST for the benefit of European watchers. This change will be in effect for the next show on November 25.[6]
