While wanting nothing more than to entertain fans, Wetzel found himself on a rescue mission when he found out that a person was missing their service dog. Hoping to help find the missing dog, Wetzel decided to stop his show to address the crowd. Putting out what he considered to be a “red alert”, the artist advised those in the crowd to help locate the missing animal. He even offered them the dog’s name. “Just look around; if y’all see a black dog, just be like, ‘Yo Sosa…come here.’ Boy right? It’s a boy dog named Sosa, just throwing that out there. We are on red alert.”
