Attention: All animal-lovers out there!
I've heard about a new business for puppy-rentals, but why pay when you can do it for free! Take your date and play with puppies and doggies this Saturday, Dec 19th. Call it a "puppy play date"!
Karma Rescue at one of their pet adoption events, which are held twice per month on Saturdays at 11 AM - 3 PM at The PETCO Store in Westwood. There are plenty of dogs who would love your attention and enjoy your company for a walk. If you love pets but don't have the time (or money), volunteering is the best way to get some puppy love. If you can spare it, donations are always appreciated. Karma Rescue welcomes volunteers of all ages. Check the website for more info and address.
For this particular Saturday, Citysearch LA's editorial team will be helping out for the pet adoption and food drive. If you bring a bag of dog food or treats, you will be eligible to win various prizes and gift certificates (see FaceBook event info).
UPDATE 01/07/10: Mark your calendars for new puppy play dates! Jan 9th, Jan 23rd, Feb 6th, Feb 20th. Check back every month for updates online.
UPDATE 02/18/10: The next event is this Saturday 2/20. Bonus: Order a FREE custom dog leash with the fave photo of your "man's best friend" by 2/19 (click HERE for discount code). Say thank you to @BargainBriana!
