Help David Canterbury and Family

On May 15th, at 4:30am David Canterbury's house burnt to the ground. They woke up to a crackling sound, and there was orange outside their window. They ran to the kitchen and opened the door, and the side of our house was engulfed in flames.

David Canterbury is a well known survival instructor and has appeared on many television shows including "Dual Survival" on The Discovery Channel.

Davids wife Iris called 911, Rocko was in bed with them, so was grabbed, and they called for PupPup, They ran downstairs to get Papa and Jameson while Dave was spraying the house with the water hose.

In a matter of about two minutes, you couldn’t see anything in the house.

Dave was frantic looking for PupPup until he couldn’t breath in the house any longer.

It took two hours and two trips for the fire to be completely put out. The fireman found PupPup and buried him in the backyard as soon as they found him.

The Canterbury family has lost everything. Pictures, vhs videos of their kids when they were little, all of Dave’s books that can never be replaced, guns, computers, every vintage Morakniv that Dave had.

The family literally ran out of the house with the clothes on our backs. Everything they have built and worked for is gone.

But the worst of all is their PupPup. They are devastated.

All proceeds but the GoFundMe percentage will be given to the Canterbury Family.
