Dog adoption event raises $1,700

Close to 20 homeless dogs were matched with new owners at a South Surrey fundraiser for A Better Life Dog Rescue this month.

Dog Adoption Days also raised $1,700 for the organization, which aids homeless, abused and neglected dogs.

“It was really successful,” said Sarah Cole, who organized the May 15 event with Dog Utopia Daycare and Spa owner Megan Ferris.

“We adopted out all the dogs we brought – we were able to find homes for all of them.”

Visitors to the fundraiser – which was held at Dog Utopia – were invited to bring their pooches for nail trimming by donation, dog games, pet photography, a bake sale, hot dogs, a silent auction and raffles.
