Ripley, a Petworth area dog who lives on 7th Street, had his owner Jeff Stone email me to let me he's raising funds to support the Humane Rescue Alliance. They're hoping readers will be interested in helping them by donating to their fund.
Here's the details:
I'm currently fundraising for the HRA and with the recent posts about the work on changing animal exposure laws and the involvement the HRA has with these animals.
The fundraiser, which I accepted on behalf of my chocolate lab, Ripley, is for the Fashion for Paws (F4P) 11th Annual Runway Show being held April 8, 2017. Fashion for Paws is a one-of-a-kind peer-to-peer fundraising event to benefit the Humane Rescue Alliance (HRA).
I've added below some specifics of the important work the HRA does. For more information on the event, the HRA and how to donate please use the link below:
