Canine Hilton's Rescue Round Up and Pints for Pits

The Canine Hilton is having a rescue round up on Saturday May,1st.  More details here.

 Love- A-Bull is having their Second Annual Pints for Pits!
Shangri-La, a cool watering hole on the east side (1016 E. 6th Street), is hosting the second annual "Pints for Pits" fundraiser for Love-A-Bull (a pit bull education and advocacy nonprofit) from 5-10 pm on Friday, April 30th. They're donating a keg, and Love-A-Bull gets the proceeds from sales of $2 draws, plus any donations raised.

This place has a great outdoor patio, so bring your pooch and your pocketbook -- and invite your friends and family (and their dogs) to join us! It will be fun way to get to know each other and show our pittie pride at this dog-friendly hang-out spot.

We will have T-Shirts for you and your pooch, stickers and other goodies for sale.
