Three Amigos Could Go Home With You
The Humane Society of Broward County’s largest fundraiser is the Walk for the Animals which will be held on March 18, 2017 at Huizenga Plaza in downtown Fort Lauderdale. The event netted over $525,000 in 2016 and the center hopes to raise even more in 2017. People are encouraged to set up fundraising pages and collect donations from friends and family. Others like to form “Packs” or teams and they get very creative in raising funds. One such team is the Puppy Peddlers, which are a group of volunteers who work in the shelter’s Pet Boutique and their friends. Last year this dedicated group raised over $36,282.00 for the shelter and took home a trophy for third place Pack fundraiser.
For the 2017 Walk the team is selling chances for the opportunity to win an estate stamped silkscreen print by the Louisiana artist George Rodrigue. The print entitled “Three Amigos” features the infamous Blue Dog with another cat and dog and measures 22” x 28”. Chances are $10.00 each; 6 for $50.00; 13 for $100.00 and can be purchased by visiting the Humane Society of Broward County’s Pet Boutique located at 2070 Griffin Road; Hair Industry at 2000 Harrison Street; the Pet Doctor of Davie located at 5183 S. University Drive; Yachtronics 626 SW 4th Ave. in Fort Lauderdale, or call Cherie at 954-266-6831.
