When: Saturday, 30 June 2012 at 6:30PM
Where: Rockwell Tent, Makati City
What: Bow & Wow Benefit Dinner for CARA

Not all animals are privileged to have a family to care for them, give them shelter and love. Some are left on the streets, abused, or made to fight to death. But through the dedication of CARA Welfare Philippines, these poor animals are given a second chance in life — away from abuse and neglect, a forever home filled with love and care.

Through a benefit dinner to be held on June 30, Bow & Wow (the Philippines’ first all-natural food store) aims to raise funds for the organization. All proceeds of each ticket costing Php3,500 (with dog) and Php2,500 (without dog) will go straight to CARA. Bow & Wow has partnered with other establishments in order to make this possible.

There will be a dinner buffet for humans by Gaita Fores’ Cibo di M, and a healthy dinner buffet for dogs by Bow & Wow. A fashion show for pets (by renowned Filipino designer Rajo Laurel), a magic show by Lou Hilario, a silent auction, a pet grooming station and other activities await you and your pet! So yep, you’ll be full and have fun. But at the same time, you’ll be helping out CARA’s plight against animal cruelty and neglect.

As you may recall, CARA and Island Rescue Organizations have recently rescued more than 200 Pit Bulls from a dog-fighting syndicate in Laguna. Although individual animal welfare advocates and UP Los Banos veterinarians are helping them rehabilitate the dogs in order to give them a chance for a forever home, keeping this up is still very costly. Imagine how many dogs they need to feed everyday!

Php3,500 can already buy about two sacks of dog food. For sure, you and your pet’s Php3,500 will go a long way. You’d be helping abused dogs get rehabilitation, and at the same time, enjoy an evening of food and fun with your fellow pet-lovers 🙂

Here’s the official press release:
