Culture on the Cheap
Dog Bowl 2008
Although this event is a ways off yet I wanted to pass along A.S.A.P for two reasons:
- Pre-registration is required.
- The proceeds of this benefit will go towards launching Dog Habitat, a not-for-profit organization that seeks to rehabilitate abandoned, abused and stray dogs.
Follows is a little information about Dog Habitat. It’s co-founders are Rob Maher and Jay Lombard, Greenpoint residents both. Ron Maher is probably better known to a number of you as the co-owner of District Dog, a canine “boutique” and “spa” located just a doggie dumplin’s throw away from McGolrick Park. Rounding out the organization is Denise Herman, a dog behaviorist and founder of Empire of the Dog.
Dog Habitat’s mission, in their own words:
…is a group of volunteer dog lovers whose mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and ultimately re-home abandoned, stray and neglected dogs. Our goal is to open one of metropolitan New York City’s largest canine rescue facilities by the end of 2008. DHR will operate as a 501c3 not-for-profit corporation under the auspices of Dog Habitat, Inc., a dog day care, veterinary clinic, training and boarding facility that will open in Brooklyn, NY in Fall 2008.
Those of you who are interested in attended their upcoming “Dog Bowl” fund raiser can pre-register online via Dog Habitat’s web site and by calling or swinging by District Dog.
