Though we’re already well into 2014, we wanted to share a taste of what we accomplished last year with the help of our supporters. Our 2013 Year in Review Report takes a look back at the last year in rescue and together with you we’ve done some amazing things! Continue reading
Saturday, February 8 marked the third annual Save-a-Bull Bake Sale and what a sweet event it was! Urban Tails Pet Supply hosted the fundraising event at their store and let us take over by setting up tables and tables of beautiful and delicious baked goods. The selection included a wide variety of gourmet human treats: cheesecake brownies, chocolate cheesecake cupcakes, red velvet cake, chocolate chip pistachio sea salt cookies, cake pops, candy covered pretzels and more! We also had a great selection of home made dog treats and gluten free options.
Several of our adoptable dogs we on hand to meet new people and potential adopters. A few of them even pitched in to raise money in the kissing booth!
Students from Herzing University came to make a donation to the rescue. They worked hard on their own fundraising event and chose Save-a-Bull Rescue as the recipient. We can’t thank them enough!
Local TV crews were also at the event to document the first public appearance of our little celebrity, Jarvis. After a month in foster care recovering from his wounds (read the story of how he came to rescue), Jarvis was ready to meet the world and start looking for a new forever family. He made the local evening news* and is finally available for adoption!
(*Jarvis actually made it on three local channels in the 5:00, 6:00 and 10:00 time slots! Here’s more.)
Thank you to everyone who participated in this event! Vendors, volunteers and the community showed us tremendous support and we we are truly grateful. We wish you Happy Valentines Day filled with the people, and dogs, you love!
Baked goods that were not sold at the end of the Save-a-Bull Bake Sale were donated to a fundraising event on Sunday Feb. 9 for the family of Thomas Sonnenberg, who was shot and killed in his own home here in North Minneapolis, while trying to help a 20-year-old man who came to his door pleading for help last Friday, Jan. 31.
