HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Meteorologist Mike Goldberg surprised a group that helps pets diagnosed with cancer as part of the CBS 6 Month of Giving.

FETCH a Cure, which is one of the groups takes part in the station's long-running "Paws for Pets" adoption segments, is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness about pet cancer.

Goldberg made a donation to the group's "Companions in Crisis" fund, which helps families pay for life-saving treatments for their pets diagnosed with cancer.

"This program strives to provide pet owners with a sense of hope when facing a cancer diagnosis," the organization's website reads. "Whether it’s two months or two years, the additional time to spend with one of your best friends is something to be treasured."

Emily Clanton with FETCH a Cure was taken aback by Goldberg's offering.

"Wow, that's amazing. No, I wasn't expecting that," Clanton said. "Oh, I am so excited"

"The only thing that we ask you guys to do, as part of this segment, is to pay it forward, which I think you're already doing everyday," Goldberg added.

Every day through December, a CBS 6 team member will surprise someone in the community with a random act of kindness.

The CBS 6 Month of Giving is possible due to a partnership with Union Bank and Trust.
