DO YOU LOVE PUPPIES?
So do we! The Community Outreach Section is partnering with Lost Dog & Cat Rescue to sponsor a dog adoption event on Saturday, May 30, 2015 from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. at the Rockville Pike PETCO, 1507 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland. We will be providing the rescue with 10 volunteers to serve as dog handlers for the event!
The adoption event is coupled with a collar and leash drive. Please bring all new or gently used leashes and collars to the event, or contact Emily Gelmann to arrange a prior pick up. Donations may also be dropped off ahead of time with Emily Gelmann at Stein Sperling, 25 West Middle Lane, Rockville, Maryland 20850.
Lost Dog & Cat Rescue is a 501(c)(3) organization that has rescued over 4500 dogs and cats since 2001. They rescue all of their animals from high-kill shelters in and around the DC area. They also take on high risk medical cases including puppies with parvo! As part of BAMC’s sponsorship we are hosting a Booster campaign to support the rescue! All you have to do is buy a t-shirt and the profits go to the rescue! Go to booster.com/gonetothedogs to support the cause.
We hope to see you on May 30 to volunteer, donate, or adopt a new dog! If you would like to volunteer for this event please email Emily Gelmann at the email address above. For more information about Lost Dog & Cat Rescue go to
