Annie's Garden Party Was A GREAT SUCCESS!

Thank you Deborah of Good Citizen Canine

for putting this event together with Katherine of Bamford and Bamford Pots in Tacoma. Here is the results of our efforts!

Thank you for those of you who volunteered, donated money or simply turned out for Annie's Garden Party yesterday at Bamford & Bamford. It was a huge success.

We helped to get new foster homes for 5 dogs from Ginger's Pet Rescue, new permanent homes for 3 and possibly more.

We won't know how much money was raised until we receive some additional donations from vendors, but we think the numbers were pretty good.

If you're interested in donating, please feel free to visit Bamford Pottery at 3001 S. Huson, right below the Fircrest Home Depot. All donations will be split among several very reputable pet rescue organizations.

And, if you are looking for something to do today, Lynette Young (who owns and operates the Clip-N-Clean and 26 Bark Avenue and is a great supporter of all dog and cat causes) is having an anniversary sale at 26th and Alder in Tacoma which goes until 5:00 PM. She's serving Champagn and Chocolate and has many nice things for sale.

Thanks again for all your help!

And a note from Ginger...

Hi Debra,

Thank you so much for inviting me to Annie's Garden Party! I had a super great time and meeting you and so many others was such a treat. I was also so thrilled to have the opportunity to meet so many of the people on my network as many of them live in the Tacoma area.

I even got two dogs Misha and Dudley adopted out and possibly a pending third one !!!!
I met the groomer from Bark Central who washed dogs at your event and Jennifer Mounts offered to
foster 5 of our death row dogs. WOW...I hit the jackpot at your event as well !!!

Jennifer's wonderful father ended up taking our Barney home and he is fostering him now.
Barney can not be around any other animals and you know how hard finding a foster home for that kind of dog is. I am SO so much accomplished yesterday and yes I met all the vendors and plan on doing some event parties with them as well.

Deena was great to see again and super Thanks for the dog food donation you brought from Petapoluza Pet Supply in Fremont WA. The dog food is going to a foster mom that has 4 of my foster dogs!

Also meeting Kate and all her most wonderful and talented Labradors & cattle dog.
Kate, I love every dog you had sitting on that little tiny white stool. What a great show you put on.
ONCE AGAIN THANK YOU SO MUCH ALL OF was very successful event for us.
