    Leading the group is Daniel, described as a “miracle dog” after surviving dog pound gas chamber when he was just a six-month-old puppy.

    Accompanying the beagle mix are six other dogs who share similar tales of survival, including a pet that was living in a puddle of mud and a dog that was on death row before being rescued.

    The dogs are set to perform on three floral stages hosted by The Lucy Pet Foundation. The foundation is hoping to create awareness of the overpopulation problem and its goal is to provide mobile spay and neuter clinics in every major city in the United States.
