Bands for BARC Dog Rescue Fundraiser

This is a really fun and rockin’ benefit to raise monies to help a local North Florida dog rescue organization! BARC is a great foster-to-adoption non-profit that saves 100’s of dogs each year. They specialize in boxer rescue recruiting 100’s of foster homes to take these abandoned, sick, injured, turned over, and often neglected dogs to get them into loving homes that treat them as family. These incredible families with BARC’s help get them up to date on shots, medical attention and much needed love. Each sweet dog is assessed and his or her individual needs are met at sometimes a costly rate and the reason it is important for the non-profit to hold fundraisers.. The best part is that each foster goes to awesome furever homes through a caring and careful adoption process! This rescue effort not only helps the boxer breed, it also enables freeing up shelter space to rescue even more dogs by their in-home fostering practices. Please come out and enjoy the bands, the raffles and silent auction for such a heartfelt cause!!

This MeetUp will be benefiting Friends of Jacksonville Animals. To RSVP for this event will require a $5 donation. (If you’d like to donate more at the event, I will have a cash box and I can also take credit card or Paypal.)

A bit about the charity:
“FOJA, an all volunteer organization, was formed in 2008, and is dedicated to the well-being of homeless animals received by Animal Care and Protective Services. Each year, the shelter takes in thousands of unwanted, abused, and neglected animals. Our focus is to end unnecessary euthanasia, educate the public about responsible pet ownership, and enrich the lives of the shelter animals. All funds donated to FOJA go directly toward achieving these goals.”

Can’t wait to see you all there!
