Dinner, auction supports dogs

Burger and Beer Puppy Love dinner with a silent auction will be held March 20 at Chad’s West Coast Grill & Bar.

Enjoy a night out for the dogs.

The Burger and Beer Puppy Love dinner with a silent auction will be held March 20 at 6:30 p.m. at Chad’s West Coast Grill & Bar. All proceeds from the dinner and silent auction go to help the organization continue its work rescuing dogs.

“Vancouver Island Dog Rescue Society’s presence in the community is to help bring awareness of dog rescue,” says president Sherry Partington. “We aim to rescue, foster, rehabilitate and rehome dogs within our communities.

“We are a non-profit registered society that is completely volunteer-based. For me personally, it is about helping dogs and showing them that there are still people out there that love them.”

Guests must be 19 years of age to attend the event.

Vancouver Island Dogs Rescue Society is an incorporated society dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and finding homes for dogs of all breeds, with a focus on Siberian huskies.

The organization relies on donations and adoption fees to cover all costs, including costs associated with rescuing, rehabilitating, feeding, transporting and providing medical care for dogs.

More information about Vancouver Island Dogs Rescue Society can be found on their newly donated website at www.IslandDogsRescue.com.
