For the third year in a row, Autobody Fine Art is proud to host a benefit for the Alameda Animal Shelter and Northern California German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue (Norcal GSP Rescue). This year, “Dog Days 3 – Petapalooza,” will
be an all day event, featuring an outdoor street fair in the back lot of the
Autobody building. Here you will find vendors selling pet related items such
as collars, beds and even some tasty snacks. The Friends of the Alameda Animal
Shelter (a 501 (c)(3) non profit organization), are setting up a photo booth
where you and your pet will be able to have your portrait taken with a suitably
sunny backdrop. As part of the event, we will be hosting our first ever dog fashion
show, please contact us in advance if you would like your pooch to walk down
the catwalk, or if you make dog fashions and are looking for a model.
Last year we made over $8,000.00 for these organizations. Please help us double
that figure for 2010. With the current turndown in the economy, rescue groups
and shelters are in need of support more than ever. These two organizations shelter,
foster and ultimately place unwanted or homeless animals in their “forever” home.
Through education and tireless volunteerism, the Alameda Animal Shelter has helped
place hundreds of dogs and cats with loving, responsible guardians across the
Island, not to mention the occasional rabbit! NorCal GSP Rescue, a breed specific
rescue group, takes adoptable GSP’s from shelters across Northern California
, treats them medically, whenever necessary, and fosters and re-homes these noble
hunting dogs. They are particularly sensitive to the needs of elder and undernourished
dogs and those that need immediate veterinary care. Please visit their website
to learn more about their programs. This year, for the first time, we will be
assisted by the Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter (a 501 (c)(3) non profit
organization),. Check out their Facebook
site here, and see how they support
and advocate for the Alameda Animal Shelter. We’re thrilled to have their help
Now you can help these groups and have a great day out! Catering will be provided
by Monas Table of Alameda, and the event will be sponsored by Mutt Lynch Winery
and by Trumer Pils.
