South Hills Pet Rescue and Resort has plans to make February fun by raising funds.
Just before Valentine’s Day, in conjunction with Megan Dilla Photography, mini photo sessions with dogs will be taken at Pet Supplies Plus in Bethel Park. The photo shoots will be held Feb 5-6 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Cost is $10 per dog for one image or a full session is $50. All proceeds go to South Hills Pet Rescue and Resort. Children are welcome, too. Dilla says no appointments are needed. Just show up.
The big event of the month will be held at Backdraft Bar and Grill on Churchview Avenue in Baldwin on Feb. 26. Bar bingo will be held with doors opening at 1:30 p.m. and bingo beginning at 3:30. Tickets went on sale at the end of January and can be purchased on the SHPRR website or the organization’s Facebook page.
Kim Wright of South Hills Pet Rescue and Resort says the event will also include a 50-50 drawing and Chinese auction. “We are always looking for volunteers to work with us at different events we are having this year,” she said.
South Hills Pet Rescue and resort is also in serious need of dog food donations. The organization is accepting donations of adult dry Purina One chicken and rice and Pedigree wet food. Donations are accepted through Amazon and chewy.com and can be donated directly to South Hills Pet Rescue and Resort. Drop-off donations can be made between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. at the organization’s driveway located at 15 Old 88 South Park, PA 15129.
Since August 2013, the resort has aided several local rescue organizations in rehabilitation, training and boarding.
