Fundraiser for World Vets in Japan
Sometimes we forget about the fur-babies.
A group of folks here in Napa is sponsoring a fundraiser to support the work of World Vets in Japan. World Vets is a "non-governmental organization providing veterinary aid around the globe in collaboration with animal advocacy groups, foreign governments, US and foreign military groups and veterinary professionals abroad." Right now they're "on-the-ground" in Sendai - an area affected by the recent Japanese earthquake and tsunami working with a large coalition of Japanese animal welfare groups. They were deployed just 4 days after the horrific tsunami as a first responder to the animals of the region.
The fundraiser will take place Sunday, April 10 from 2 - 8 pm at Billco's Billiards (1234 Third Street, Napa). "Oh, for Pet's Sake" will feature:
100% of the net proceeds from this event will benefit World Vets International Aid for Animals - Japan Relief as well as the American Red Cross.
Admission is just $3.00! See you there!
