I saw this and wanted to share because I know so many of you are dedicated to finding homes for dogs.
Animal Care Centers of New York City is hosting its 4th annual “Pit Bowl” Feb. 9. The goal is to find loving homes for pitbulls, pit mixes and dogs in general.
The event will include bowling, food, music, raffle prizes, pool, ping-pong (my personal favorite) and mingling with dogs!
Everything is taking place at the Luxe Lounge at Lucky Strike in New York City. It's not that I expect you to book a ticket to New York and attend, I just wanted to share because it's an awesome idea that's FUN while involving the public and getting dogs out and about.
As most of you know, you can't assume people will go to your shelter to obtain their next dog. You have to find creative and fun ways to get them to your shelter in the first place AND get the dogs out and about.
All proceeds from the Pit Bowl will support the animals in ACC's care. Individual bowling tickets are $40 and it's $35 for non-bowling “cheerleaders.”
I love this idea, and I'm hoping others can copy it or come up with similar creative events to help dogs find homes.
What do you think?
Let me know if your shelter or rescue has created any similar events lately. Sometimes it helps to see what others are doing.
