An animal advocate has spent the night in a rescue shelter kennel to raise funds for re-homing abandoned animals.
Allan Dixon stayed the night in a kennel at the Animal Welfare League shelter at Coombabah on the Gold Coast.
Starting with an empty pen, caretakers gradually gave Mr Dixon a mattress, blankets, pillows, food and even water in a dog bowl.
"I'm starting to go a little crazy," he told 9News.
"I cannot wait to get out of here."
Mr Dixon has so far raised almost half of his $10,000 goal.
