3R Rescue will host their inaugural event on Saturday, Nov. 5, at Park Winters with venue owners, John Martin and Rafael Galiano. 3R hopes to raise much-needed funds to save more dogs from death in California shelters.
The doors open at 4:30 p.m. for cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and music, while browsing silent auction items. Dinner, prepared by the Park Winters’ chefs, begins at 6:30 p.m., followed by dessert from Freeport Bakery. Finally, there will be a live auction to bid on a variety of items, such as private plane rides, trips to Italy, Bali or Africa, and other custom packages/items.
Tickets are $125 per person if purchased by Oct. 1, and $150 after. Buy tickets and pre-register for auction bidding at charityacution.bid/3Rrescue.
About 3R Rescue
3R Rescue, located in Winters, is a nonprofit dog rescue, whose mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home animals in need of a second chance. Dogs are provided medical care, quality nutrition and the opportunity to de-stress and socialize in a home environment, enabling them to be ‘good citizens’ in their new lives.
Dogs are rescued from rural, under-sourced shelters that do not have adequate medical support, staff or facilities and few potential adopters coming to the shelter. Euthanasia rates at these shelters are extremely high (as much as 80 percent).
Locally, 3R Rescue supports the Winters community by assisting senior citizens with their pets, engaging Winters High School students on their Capstone Projects, and participating in local events such as Winters Youth Day to continue to educating youth on empathy and care for animals as well as the importance of spaying/neutering pets.
According to Linda Palagi Lynn, president of 3R, some of the shelters they serve are killing 40-50 dogs every day. Many of these dogs are totally adoptable and end up in shelters through no fault of their own. 3R hopes that Paws at the Park will help to raise funds to expand its local programs, rural shelter support and save more dogs.
If you can’t join the gala, 3R hopes you will consider becoming an event sponsor or donating items for the silent or live auctions.
3R is also actively recruiting board members and volunteers.
Finally, monetary donations are welcome online at www.3rrescue.org or by check mailed to 3R Rescue, PO Box 608, Winters, CA 95694.
