From a Friends of Berkeley Animal Care Services press release:
Power to the Paws
The City of Piedmont has partnered with Berkeley Animal Care Services for over 10 years. The City of Piedmont’s Animal Control officers regularly use this facility for their rescued animals. Last year the Berkeley Animal Care Services took in 117 animals from the City of Piedmont. Many were rescued and later put out for adoption.
Friends of Berkeley Animal Care Services, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is hosting its first fundraising event on Thursday, October 18, from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. at the David Brower Center, 2150 Allston Way, Berkeley.
The event titled “Power to the Paws”, will feature refreshments, light fare, entertainment, and a silent and live auction, with local author, screenwriter, and actor Josh Kornbluth as master of ceremonies.
The fundraising event will use all proceeds to benefit the newly named Dona Spring Animal Shelter in Berkeley previously known as the BACS. This new shelter will have, for the first time, an on-site medical suite to treat injured and sick animals, spay and neuter dogs and cats, and provide general medical care to shelter residents.
Properly outfitting the new medical suite will require more than $75,000 in equipment and supplies.
Individuals wishing to attend the fundraising event on October 18, or those wishing to contribute to the new shelter should visit the Friends of Berkeley Animal Care Services website at www.friendsofbacs.org. All donations are tax deductible.
