Calvin Williams, better known as gotbooze on Twitch and Twitter, has loved gaming since he was 5 years old when he first played on his father’s Sega Genesis.
This interest became a hobby which turned into a passion. The Michigan native and former bartender started streaming in early 2020 to help fundraise for animals in shelters, and now he’s fundraising to help his own dogs, Toby and Dagny.
He streams from 9:30 p.m.-1:00 a.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday.
Can you explain what's going on with the dogs’ medical issues?
Two of our dogs, Toby and Dagny, are currently getting treatment from the vet right now. Toby was a rescue from the humane society and has bad knees. His issue came out of nowhere and he now just limps a lot as well as has to sit down very frequently. Dagny had a tumor show up on her foot and ear about 6 months ago and we had them removed. One just showed up on her toe in a place that made the vet have to remove her toe. This has led me to having a donation goal. All of the money from donations and Twitch payout are going toward their treatment.
