I receive emails everyday from dog organizations about their fundraisers, so many it’s hard to keep up. All the events are worthy of mention but it’s impossible to do on an individual basis, so I’ve decided to try something new. I’m going to post the upcoming events in a list, to find out more information just click on the link.
If you have an event you would like me to post use the ‘Bark Back’ form to contact me.
1. Greetings from the 2009 LA County Fair! Imagine a world where mans best friend is deemed king of the hill and everyday house dogs are considered royalty. Where is this magical place, you might ask? Welcome to Bark Park the one-stop human shop for all things canine!
2. San Francisco’s Hearing Dog Program. The non-profit, composed of former employees of the 30-year-old program abruptly discontinued by the SPCA in 2008, in April lost in a court case in which it claimed that it was the rightful beneficiary of a half-million dollar behest for the SPCA’s hearing dog program, not the SPCA.
Tom Oliver, the organization’s program director, said he’ll be selling “half a roomful” of swag from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 13 on the corner of 30th and Dolores with all proceeds going to the dogs.
3. Angels In Fur Rescue is having their first fundraiser, Saturday Sept. 26th from 7:30pm-10:00pm. We are having a party at Smashbox Studios in Culver City (Vanity Fair does many of their photo shoots here). Ross Mathews from “The Jay Leno Show” will provide us with fabulous entertainment for the evening. Wine, beverages and appetizers will be served. We will have a silent auction for some great gifts including tickets to the LA Opera, jewelry from Gregg Wolf, movie and music memorabilia, extravagant gift baskets and more!!!
