Thanks to everyone who supported/attended our annual “Dinner With Friends”

Smokey and new familyAll of us at Animal Rescue League want to thank everyone who supported and attended our 14th annual
“Dinner With Friends” on May 2nd.
Our theme this year was
“For Better or Worse” and it was so much fun seeing pictures of our loving pets in
loving and naughty situations!

For the last couple years we have featured Smokey, a red Heeler on our website. Smokey had been at Animal Rescue for over three years and we just wanted to share….
He now has a loving forever home with two other dogs and a human family that just adores him. It may have taken a while but we never give up on our animals. Thank you to everyone that was a part of Smokey’s life at Animal Rescue and especially to his new forever family.
Toby is now our featured animal and ARL hopes he finds his forever family soon.

Animal Rescue League wants to thank everyone who attended our 2nd Annual “Running of the Chihuahuas.” Animal Rescue also wants to thank all our sponsors, vendors, and food trucks that made this event even better and bigger. With all the Chihuahua entries, we may have to add a semi-final category next year. And for our under 25 lb. other breed category we hope to have more competition! See you next year!
