John Barrowman, Billy Boyd Help Band Raise Funds for Dogs Trust

They may be called The Swingcats, but a UK trio has put a song in the hearts of dog devotees, with a little help from some famous friends of Fidos.

In memory of group member Alyson Orr’s canine companion Angus, who recently crossed Rainbow Bridge, the Big Band-influenced ensemble with a big heart is donating the proceeds from their new single “The One” to the United Kingdom’s largest dog welfare charity, Dogs Trust.

Showing their support for the compassionate combo, Torchwood/Arrow star John Barrowman; Billy Boyd of Lord of the Rings fame and comedic actor Paul Riley (Still Game, Chewin’ the Fat) make cameo appearances in the The Swingcats‘ video.
