“Torchwood” star and “Doctor Who” alum John Barrowman has been doing some spring cleaning. The actor has gone through his closets and picked out items to donate to Dog’s Trust, one of his supported charities.

He writes on his website, “It’s no secret to anyone who knows me that two of my favourite things are shopping and supporting Dogs Trust. After a recent spring-cleaning, I donated lots of stuff to the new Cowbridge shop, including posters, watches and boxes of clothing. I hope you’ll pay a visit and share in my favourite things.”

If you love Captain Jack Harkness, you can own some of the actor’s belongings. The items will go on sale on March 31st. Not local to Dog’s Trust? Some of the items will go up on eBay as well, so check back on Barrowman’s site for more details, which he promises to report on in the coming days.

Sure, his trademark military coat from “Who” won’t be in the mix, but you can bet lots of his personal goodies will be up for grabs. And all the funds will go to benefit homeless dogs, spay/neuter programs, education programs and, a program we’re particularly in love with, “helping pet owners who are fleeing domestic violence by fostering their animals while they start a new life.”
