Folks at the Taste of Pinellas saw spots before their eyes thanks to DRTB Volunteers. June 4th, 2006.
D RTB Dalmatians Eddie, Sparky, and Blue were a big hit at the Taste of Pinellas this past weekend. Even Ronald McDonald couldn't resist them! Thanks to Purina ProPlan Rally to Rescue for inviting us to be a part of their new program that promotes adoption of shelter dogs. The event made a lot more people aware of the wonderful Dals and other dogs that are abandoned every day.
DRTB wouldn't have been there at all without our awesome group of volunteers. Special thanks go to our Foster Coordinator Sherry Massaro for doing all of the legwork to make the event a success. Frank Natoli also put in over-time and even did another garage sale run on the side. Foster parents Tara, Doug, & Lee showed off Eddie, Sparky, & Blue both days in the hopes of finding them homes. Merna, Linda & Robin, Theresa, Marilyn, Pat, LouAnne, & Nicole staffed the booth and helped raised enough money with donations and a raffle to help us rescue at least one or two more Dalmatians! And Lee Peter, DRTB Secretary, made a special guest appearance to drop off garage sale items and chat with everyone. And Rich, our ever-faithful Webmaster, for bringing this story to you.
Thank you all again so much for your dedication to helping save more and more animals’ lives.
