Eat Good Food, Help Good Dogs

Life ain’t all puppies and rainbows, but it can be* on Saturday at the Yappy Yard Sale, which raises money for local dog rescues. The 50-percent-off yard sale at the Bow-Wow Resort store not only benefits Shepherd Help and Rescue Effort (SHARE) and the Be Kind to Animals Rescue but also features a gourmet barbecue and doggies that will be available for adoption. From 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., you get to buy items that go toward a great cause while enjoying good food and cute pups. Founded in 2011, SHARE has worked to rescue German shepherds and shepherd mixes from local kill shelters and to help them find permanent homes. Not only does the organization place its dogs with appropriate owners but SHARE also raises money to pay veterinary bills for those that require medical treatment. Bow-Wow Resort is located at 4100 N. Powerline Road., Ste. G-3, in Pompano Beach. Call 954-970-0007, or visit bowwowresorts.com. Visit shepherdhelp.org. (*Rainbows are hoped for but not guaranteed.)
Sat., July 7, 8 a.m.-3 p.m., 2012
