Upward Dog

The Hollywood-based nonprofit Underdog Foundation was established to raise money for the rescue and adoption community and — to quote cofounder Adam Greenberg — to “bring awareness about what’s going on in our backyard, support low-cost spay and neuter, educate well- intentioned pet owners, and rescue special cases utilizing foster care.” One of their most significant concerns is making “a difference in South Florida’s horrific euthanasia statistics,” a cause Yoga One, a Hollywood studio that cares about community outreach, has agreed to support. Often, says Greenberg, animals are put to sleep unnecessarily — they are healthy upon arrival at shelters, “but because of the poor cleaning efforts and overwhelming number of animals they intake with a very low budget, many do not stay that way.” On Friday, Yoga One will host the Underdog Foundation’s first fundraising event to help raise awareness of these troubles: a private class to beginners and yoga experts alike. The class is free with a suggested minimum donation of $20, but any little bit counts, as all proceeds will go directly to the Underdog Foundation. The class will be followed by refreshments and the opportunity to learn more about the Underdog Foundation and its mission. The class is from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday at Yoga One (613 N. 21st Ave., Hollywood.) You can attend by RSVP’ing to [email protected] Visit underdogfoundation.org for more information. You can also take what you learn here up with you to Yoga Day in West Palm Beach tomorrow.
