LEND A HAND TO EARS
(Fort Lauderdale, September 4, 2005) Animals, like people, experience trauma during disasters. And, like their human counterparts, thousands of dogs, cats and other animals were left stranded in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and need food, water, shelter and possibly medical treatment.
Central Bark Doggy Day Care and Animal Communicator Joan Ranquet will host a “Yappy Hour” Tuesday, September 27 from 7:00pm to 9:00pm to benefit the Emergency Animal Rescue Service (EARS). This special evening will include wine, champagne, and hors’doeuvres. A Silent Auction will include items from E Collecion, Newport Furnishings, Neiman Barkus, Hi-Life Café among others, and is designed to raise the funds for the organization whose disaster rescues are funded solely through donations and provided free of charge to the community.
EARS, the disaster rescue program of United Animal Nations is a 501(3)(c) organization that has a nationwide network of more than 2,300 trained volunteers dedicated to rescuing and caring for animals during disasters. During the past fifteen years, EARS volunteers have helped thousands of animal disaster victims including more than 400 animals during last summer's devastating string of hurricanes in Florida
Central Bark Doggy Day Care is located at 3699 North Dixie Highway. For more information call 954-568-3647 or go to http:// www.centralbark.com
