Arizona Greyhound Rescue invites greyhounds and their adopters as well as all breeds of dogs and their companions to a memorable event on Saturday – November 13 at Brandi Fenton Park.

11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Buy accessories for you and your dogs.

Listen to live music.

Savor the live dessert auction with delectables by one of Tucson’s best female pastry chef.

Learn to dance with your dog.

Meet 7 dog rescues and 1 horse rescue. Get interactive with dogs available for adoption. Maybe there will be a canine love connection?

Mingle. Make new friends and remember old.

Eat: Kettle korn, hot dogs, and smoothies for sale.

Win lots of prizes — three different raffles with awesome prizes.

Silent auction.

The cost is $5/per family and all proceeds go to Arizona Greyhound Rescue which rescues retired racing greyhounds from the South Tucson dog track.

Bring your friends — 2-legged and 4 legged. Leave the cats at home.

Have fun!

Hello Tucson!  This weekend is the 4th Avenue Street Fair where artists sell their wares and people stroll the vehicle-free 4th Avenue enjoying the wonderful food (aromas are free…love that BBQ), live music, and community atmosphere.

C’mon down to Silver Sea Jewelry & Gifts at 330 N. 4th Avenue (next to Bison Witches Cafe) and buy some one-0f-a-kind beaded bracelets to help pay the $14,300 vet bill. Bracelets cost only $20 and each bracelet is different, original, whimsical and for such a meaningful cause.

Tell Elizabeth (Lizzie) Mead that you read the blog and came by to say hi. Both Lizzie and her hounds Opal and Rider are doing well. It is a miracle!
