Need and response leave Central Bark Doggy Day Care with no alternative than to extend Katrina Pet Rescue Donation Center Open
(Fort Lauderdale, September 16, 2005) â€œWe can't stop now; too many dogs and cats need our helpâ€. Explains Julian Cavazos III, General Manager of Central Bark Doggy Day Care. â€œWe're 100% committed to getting supplies to the dogs and cats in the disaster areas and so is the South Florida communityâ€. Central Bark has received donations such as crates, food, medical supplies and more, but have trucks waiting to send out. â€œWe need dog & cat food (dry or can), crates to move the dogs and cats, flea & tick products, medical supplies and anything that will help us with this effort. â€œWe need supplies ASAP, we have another truck leaving and need to fill it before we pull outâ€. â€œWe will also be fostering dogs here at Central Bark, so anyone interested in adopting should contact us or come to our Yappy Hour September 27".
Central Bark Doggy Day Care and Animal Communicator Joan Ranquet will host a â€œYappy Hourâ€ 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 horsâ€™doeuvres. A Silent Auction will include items from E Coleccion, Newport Furnishings, Neiman Barkus, Hi-Life CafÃ© 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.
