Anyone who knows us at all knows that we love dogs more than people.
And we love people a lot.
So we jump at any chance we get to support the great work of dog rescue groups. That’s why we’ve been involved in helping Barking Hound Village produce the Kibble & Cocktails fundraiser and we hope you’ll join us this year.
It began in 2011 to support the Voices for Justice program, an educational initiative to teach kids how to treat pets with love, care and respect. The program gets its name from Justice, a four-month-old pit bull puppy that was severely tortured and set on fire. Her story didn’t have a happy ending, but the work of DFW Rescue Me has provided Happily Ever Afters for more than 1,800 dogs since.
Kibble & Cocktails has raised more than $50,000 from just three small-scale events, but this year’s going to be bigger than ever with a goal to match the previous grand total during one night alone. It’s an event designed to celebrate the joy dogs bring to our lives with 100% of the proceeds benefiting this fantastic cause.
Most of all, it’s just plain fun.
Featuring food from Sharon Van Meter of 3015 at Trinity Groves, Amberjax, Baboush, Gemma, Kitchen LTO, Rodeo Goat, Nick and Sam’s, Souk, Luck and Bark Chocolate, plus free-flowing booze courtesy of Stoli Vodka, Texas Ale Project and Bottled Poetry wines, you won’t leave hungry or thirsty.
But you might leave with the desire for a new four-legged friend.
