Tri-County Animal Rescue is home to many cats and dogs just waiting for the right family to come along. They take in strays, surrendered animals, and rescues from high-kill shelters and provide them with care until they find a forever home...maybe yours?
Whether or not you have the room or commitment to adopt, there's a simple way to help the dogs and cats who call this place a temporary home. By drinking beer.

Tonight, May 5 from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m., join the Tri-County for a happy hour at Due South Brewing Co. in Boynton Beach. A $10 donation goes directly to the shelter and you, in turn, will get a free beer and appetizers. Plus Bucaneer Bounty Food Truck will be on hand, offering a discount to all animal (and beer) lovers. There will also be raffles for prizes and lots of fun. It's a total win/win situation.
Amanda Chussler of the Tri-County Animal Rescue says that fundraisers like this help the no-kill shelter care for homeless cats and dogs and provides much-needed money for adoption and outreach campaigns. "Having an event at Due South provides the necessary funding for our emergency medical fund. Just today we took in two mom dogs, a basset hound with 7 puppies and a Min Pin with two. The money raised from this fundraiser will go directly to their care."
Purchase tickets at the door or online at itrulycare.com. Your happy hour will benefit pups and kitties like Fifi (so much cuter than Grumpy Cat).
