Angel’s Rest Dog Rescue and Sanctuary is holding its annual fundraiser on July 13 and owner/operator Christine Van Moorsel says she wants the community’s support.

From 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, the organization will open its property at 1079 Queenston Rd. for a garage sale, bake table, silent auction and more. All proceeds raised will go toward maintaining quality care for the sick or dying dogs in Van Moorsel’s home.

She said she was able to feed the dogs for the year off of donations received at last year’s fundraiser. This year, she said she would like to do the same and also raise some money to off-set the costs incurred through vet bills and other expenses.

A barbeque offering hot dogs and hamburgers will be available for purchase from 12 p.m. and the dogs will be “paraded out” between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Visitors are welcome to bring their own dogs for the afternoon.

“I just hope that people come out and enjoy themselves and leave a little something for the dogs when they leave,” she said.
