Many Show Support at Bark for Art

On Saturday, May 16th Atlanta Lab Rescue hosted its Annual “Bark for Art” Silent Auction and fundraiser. More than 400 Atlanta Lab Rescue supporters helped reduce the current deficit. The event raised about $27,000 with attendees bidding on more than 200 auction items ranging from a weeks stay at a beach home to Braves Tickets with so many other wonderful treasures in the mix.

Atlanta Lab Rescue Co-Founder Becky Cross said,

“This was an exceptional event! Our organization truly has many caring friends and special adopters. And we couldn’t have done it without the largesse of those who helped with services and other resources. I’d like to extend a special thanks to our caterer, Endive; and the extraordinary gallery, Mason Murer who made the location vibrant and colorful. No event would be complete without the appropriate wine; donated so generously by Intermezzo Café.”
Over the past two years, Atlanta Lab Rescue has saved more than 600 labs and mixed breed dogs. However, in order for them to continue their rescue efforts, and "draw down their debt," several fundraisers are in the works.. Currently, a motorcycle ride is scheduled for the fall.
