We won a doggy treat basket by Dig In Dogs – yum! And our friend gave us one of her Rams Dog Food samples to try. We had a bite at the event and loved the all-natural doggy food!

Be sure to visit the K9Kastle page to learn about their adoptable pups. Their information: K9Kastle Corp. is a volunteer run, not-for-profit rescue group that rehabilitates and rehomes both cats and dogs. K9Kastle is a proud member of the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals, and is grateful to enjoy the generosity of Maddie’s fund.

The Sato Project brunch | thepupdiary.com

15 Apr

Mom took the LIRR out to Douglaston Manor this morning to support The Sato Project and their annual brunch fundraising event.  The Sato Project helps rescue abandoned and abused dogs from Puerto Rico.  They mainly work at Dead Dog Beach where they rescue the dogs, fully vet them including spay and neuter, and then fly the pups off the island into forever homes.  Since The Sato Project’s inception in November 2011, they have rehabilitated and adopted an average of 26 dogs per month in the U.S.  One of their little doggies was a special brunch guest. 

We love this video that their photographic volunteer, Sophie Gamand, made to show some of the behind the scenes work they do:

The sold-out brunch had flowing mimosas and bellinis, over 75 raffle prizes, New York City skyline views, and lots of dedicated volunteers and supporters.  Our friends from Yorkie 911 Rescue, Celebrity Catwalk, and other groups came out to support.  Designer Anthony Bandit Rubio was there and is working on a special project, Dog Vogue, with Sophie Gamand.
