3 rescue groups have come together to put together this fabulous event. All proceeds raised will help these groups Rescue animals from local animal shelters, focusing on "Code Red" (at-risk and injured) animals in need of immediate attention and to Educate the public on the importance of Spay & Neuter programs and all the low-cost options available in our community. These groups rescue unwanted, abandoned, injured, or ill companion animals -- primarily from "high kill" shelters and owner surrenders. These these animals will be placed in foster homes where they can receive proper veterinary care, rehabilitation, and rest in order to prepare them to go to their forever homes. The intent is to work within our community and educate pet owners on the importance of spaying and neutering their companion animals in order to assist with the reduction of unwanted animals. The groups also focus on programs that educate both our community and potential adopters on the fact that animals are a lifelong commitment -- and to help them realistically prepare for that commitment.
