An animal protection organization is having a fund-raising party in Heredia March 1. The organization is Asociación Humanitaria Para la Protección Animal de Costa Rica, an the event is being called Mutt’s Party. The rationale is that “we’re into the cross breeds. We’re not into breeding purebreds and selling them when so many great dogs are looking for loving homes, according to a spokesperson.
Tickets are $100, and all proceeds go to the organization’s spay and neuter program which sterilizes both stray dogs and cats and the pets of those who can’t afford it. “It’s all for a good cause! You can pay by cash or credit card at the door, just make a reservation.” said the spokesperson. The ticket includes a 2014 membership in the organization and lunch at Rancho de Salud Pura Vida north of Heredia
The event begins at 12:30 p.m. in San Rafael de Heredia. For directions and more information readers can contact Leigh Monahan at firstname.lastname@example.org or Lilian Schnog at email@example.com.
