Paw it forward: A big day

Posted on

This one’s for all the locals, so please help spread the word to any friends you have in the Chicago area. Next Saturday, September 8 there are two local fundraising events for animal welfare:

C.A.R.E Dog Wash: we mentioned this a couple of weeks ago – C.A.R.E’s community dog washes are always a lot of fun (mostly for us humans, but your dog will survive the indignation of a bath) and a great bargain at $10 a dog. Pedi-pedis are also on the menu for $10, and all the proceeds go to the Evanston shelter.

Wright-Way Rescue Tail Gate Party: once everyone’s clean and fresh, head over to Uncle Fatty’s in Lakeview for an afternoon party. Friendly pets are welcome, and may even win a prize for dressing in honor of their favorite football teams or players. Tickets are $30, and  advance registration gets you a raffle ticket.

So everyone has one week to get properly dirty (dogs) and buy tiny football jerseys (humans). Pickles is dividing her time between layering up on filth and resting.
