So Monday, I made the big mistake of trying to watch an HBO Documentary on dogs. Less than 5 minutes in, and I was a sobbing mess- massive tears. I mean, I'm not even emotional in my REAL life. 10 minutes in I had to change the channel, because I was distraught, and poor Otto was getting really freaked out. This is no surprise to anyone, but I'm a complete sucker for dogs, particularly rescue dogs.
This Friday (June 22nd) from 7-10 pm, smARTspace at 78th Street Studios is hosting the 2012 Art Fur Animals Benefit and Auction. The event benefits Friends of the Cleveland Kennel, which helps take care of and place the 100s of dogs that arrive per month at the Cleveland Kennel. Without Friends, those poor animals would probably end up euthanized. Its a very sad and sobering reality that these volunteers deal with on a daily basis, but they continue to work diligently to find these animals a home wherever possible.
The event features some really awesome art thats available for auction, and of course raffle prizes. There's also complimentary beer and wine. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 day of the event. If you're interested in buying a ticket, you can do so here. N and I will be there supporting this incredible organization, and we hope to see you there too!!
