Animal lovers had a doggone good time at Fox Studios to benefit the Coalition for Pets and Public Safety and the California Wildlife Center. Several hundred folks scampered in for the festivities, which included a cocktail reception and music by Kiki Ebsen.
The silent auction couldn’t have been more pooch appropriate. Must-have items included gold lame dog carriers, gift bags filled with doggie products like Canine Unwind Massage Oil, tickets to “Bark! The Musical,” gourmet dog bones and custom made doggie bowls.
Revelers put down their final bids before high-tailing it over to a special screening of “Little Manhattan.” It was a fun-filled way to help out thousands of furry friends. The California Wildlife Center helps rescue, rehabilitate and release thousands of sick and injured animals every year, while the Coalition for Pets and Public Safety offers free and low-cost spay and neuter programs to help make sure every pup and kitty has a loving home. Bow Wow!
