When I spied the eyes of this chap upon me I inquired of the woman on the stoop as to his identity. She told me his name was “Texas” and he belonged to a woman who works at a shelter on Wythe Avenue. By this I presume she meant BARC.

THIS WEEK: Fundraiser for the McCarren Dog Run

macdogrunThis Saturday, November 21, NYCPet will be hosting an all-day event to benefit McCarren Park’s very own dog run. “Shopping For Dogs” is pretty self-explanatory: 10% of every purchase made on this day will be donated to the McCarren Dog Run to help fund their much-needed drainage project (at last word they still need about $5,000 more bucks to make this happen). In addition, there will be a drawing for prizes from such local businesses as:

  • Northside Veterinary Clinic
  • Holistic Select Products
  • Brooklyn General Barber
  • And much more!

Refreshments are also promised. If you patronize the McCarren Dog Run run— even occasionally— please swing by NYCPet this Saturday. You can also make a donation online via PayPal. It’s your dog run, Williamspointers!

Shopping for Dogs
November 21, 2009; 9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
241 Bedford Avenue
Brooklyn, New York 11211

Be sure to buy a can for BARC while you’re there!

Hi Miss Heather!

I love your blog :-)  and thought maybe you could post a flyer for our event?  I’m doing a “Belly Dancers for BARC” benefit show at the Boulevard Tavern on Meeker this Saturday from 6pm-10pm.  We’ve gotten beer donations from Weinstephaner & Harpoon and all profits from those sales will go to BARC as well as whatever we make on a raffle we’re putting together.  No cover charge, belly dance performances by my company, Manhattan Tribal and other local dancers….

All the best and thank you!

A Beer & Bellydance Benefit for BARC
Saturday, June 27 starting at 6:00 p.m.
