Recycled Doggies Happy Hour and Silent Auction
Take your Thursday happy hour to Star Lanes at Newport on the Levee next week to help support Recycled Doggies! On February 28th, from 5:30 PM to 9:00 PM, this Cincinnati based dog rescue will be hosting a silent auction and happy hour event to commemorate the second anniversary of a tragic event. On February 28, 2011, the Norwood home of Recycled Doggies co-founder, Shannon DeBra, was destroyed by a fire. Sadly, 10 of the rescue’s foster dogs as well as 3 of Shannon’s own dogs and a cat were lost in the fire. Recycled Doggies now holds an annual fundraiser to commemorate the fire and the loss of so many lives. The event raises funds in their memory to ensure that Recycled Doggies can continue to pursue its mission to save dogs from death row at area shelters and find them forever homes. Founded in 2009, Recycled Doggies has found homes for over 1000 dogs rescued from shelters where they were at risk for euthanization. Recycled Doggies relies completely on donations and adoption fees to pay vet bills and medical expenses, as well as to buy food and other supplies to keep the dogs happy and healthy while they wait in volunteer foster homes until they find their forever homes.
