Mingle with adoptable canines at this dog documentary fundraising party

Feb 26 2019, 11:26 pm

If your idea of a good time is chowing down on delicious food with a drink in hand and meeting very cute dogs, do we have an event for you.

An upcoming fundraiser for the Baja Dog Project is combining cocktails and canines for a very worthy cause: Helping homeless dogs.

Some of the Mexican dogs rescued by Acre Dogs.

The group is raising money to film a documentary about the plight of stray dogs in the Baja Peninsula in Mexico, and the efforts to help them. Spearheaded by Melanie Booth and Stephanie Taylor of the non-profit animal rescue West Coast Pet Project, the duo has an ambitious goal of raising $30,000 to cover production costs.
