If you like pancakes, tomorrow's fundraiser is just for you. Applebee's is having a Flapjack Fundraiser breakfast to support the Friends of Linden Animal Shelter (FOLAS), a nonprofit rescue run solely by volunteers. The event is being held on Saturday April 5, 2014 from 8 am to 10 am at the Applebee's located at 671 W. Edgar Road in Linden. Tickets are $12 a piece and includes pancakes, sausages, scrambled eggs and a drink (coffee, juice, soda, or tea).

If comedy is more your style, then the Stand Up for Paws may be for you. The comedy show will be held on Saturday, April 12, 2014 at the Bickford Theatre (6 Normandy Heights Road, Morristown) at 6 pm. The event is being sponsored by Pittie Full Events Plus, a Pit Bull Rescue, Awareness & Advocacy Organization. Three comedians (Robin Fox, Sheila Kay, and Jay Black) will be entertaining all attendees. The pre-show event will feature the musical talents of Elastic Pyramid and Jack Tannehill. A tricky tray and 50/50 will also be held at the event. Three rescues will benefit from the proceeds:

FernDog Rescue Foundation is based in Caldwell, NJ, and is an organization that helps dogs at risk by providing foster homes that will nurture their physical and emotional health, help locate the ideal forever home for them while providing support and training to help assure that their stay in their new homes is permanent.

911 Dog & Cat Rescue is based in Morristown, NJ, and is run solely by volunteers. All animals that are adopted out by the rescue originated from Animal Control as strays or surrenders. Since starting in 2010, Morristown has had a 0% euthanasia rate for healthy animals.

Paws is based out of Montclair, NJ, and is a rescue and sheltering organization that has been serving Montclair and the surrounding communities for 35 years. The focus is on at-risk cats and dogs, often bully breeds.

Tickets are $35 and can be purchased on-line here.
