After raising more than $30,000 for local rescue groups in its first two years, Kibble & Cocktails is back. On Tuesday, April 29 from 7 to 10 p.m. attendees will gather at this fundraiser held at 3015 at Trinity Groves in Dallas. Tickets are $100 per person and can be purchased at the website.
Hosted by Barking Hound Village, Kibble & Cocktails brings together the best-of-the-best in food and entertainment allowing guests to mix and mingle while raising money for their four-legged friends. This year’s monies will benefit the Voices of Justice program at DFW Rescue Me. Named after a four-month-old pit bull puppy who suffered tremendous abuse, Voices of Justice educates children with classroom presentations and take-home materials to learn about the proper treatment of animals in an effort to prevent future abuse.
“Barking Hound Village has an ongoing relationship with DFW Rescue Me wherein we host two dogs at a time at our facility until they can be adopted,” said event host and Barking Hound Village owner Lisa Jones. “We chose to focus this year’s Kibble & Cocktails around the Voices of Justice program because of the great work it does in educating future generations about how to treat animals properly and with compassion.”
