Lake Forest, California – The Little Red Dog, a nonprofit dog rescue organization in Orange County, Calif., is inviting community members and animal lovers to celebrate its 3-year anniversary. Even before The Little Red Dog was formed, its founder and "Top Dog," PJ Rosch, had already saved the lives of many dogs and placed them in wonderful forever homes.
Admission is free and, of course, pets are welcome. There will be vendors, educational clinics - such as dog training and dog walking - and lots of entertainment and food. A pet adoption event will also be part of the festivities.
The event, which will take place on Aug. 2, 2013, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., is also a fundraiser to help the small rescue save more dogs and provide them with the vet care they often require. Part of its fundraising efforts will include a silent auction and raffle.
Maggie and Buster - depicted in the slideshow - are only two examples of the many dogs that The Little Red Dog has saved from a date with the dreaded "needle" that would have forever deprived them of their lives. Thanks to Rosch's dogged dedication (no pun intended), their grim fate was changed.
The Little Red Dog also rescues sick dogs from Tijuana, Mex. One recent rescue was Jess, a very skinny blue-nose pit bull with a severely injured leg and an endearing gigantic head. The link to Jess' story is provided below.
The Founder's Day and Fundraising event will help the rescue continue its mission of saving dogs on death row or living on the streets, as well as pay for their much-needed vet care - which, more often than not, are astronomically high.
This will be The Little Red Dog's first season hosting such an event. They are hopeful that through this event, they will be able to place some of their adoptable pets in good homes, accomplish its fundraising goals, and that the event will be successful and an enjoyable celebration for everyone.
