Dog Rescue Group Sets Fundraising Event

Take a drive to St. James Lutheran Church and help this worthy cause.

The "Barks and Bunnies" fundraiser will take place at St. James Lutheran Church: 2437 Niagara Rd, Niagara Falls on March 24th from 1 p. m. to 6 p. m.

This event will benefit the Akron Canine Rescued Angels, a local animal rescue group which rescues dogs from high kill shelters, then provides transport, foster homes, vet care, food, etc., and places dogs in homes all over Niagara and Erie counties.

The public is welcome and the event is free. Money is raised through more than 100 basket raffles, a bake sale featuring Easter dessert platters, 20 vendor tables selling jewelry, home items, cosmetics, stained glass, pet supplies, gourmet foods, etc.

J&L BBQ will sell BBQ food items to the guests. Fowlers Chocolates will be on site selling chocolates for Easter baskets.

There will also be a Kids Corner with a balloon person, face painter, and crafts.

Akron Canine Rescued Angels, Inc. began in November of 2008 and rescues unwanted dogs/puppies from shelters or homes and places them for adoption to loving homes, provides foster care in 18 homes and obtains interim vet care, working with various shelters.

The organization has placed 847 dogs in homes.
