Rescue Appreciation Banquet


Join us as we honor some of the many deserving people who work with rescue dogs.

Hosted by

Deirdre Franklin from Pinups for Pitbulls

Keynote Speaker:

Shorty Rossi aka Pit Boss

People who volunteer with rescue and shelter dogs do it for the love, not for the attention or the accolades. However, we will be taking this opportunity to honor many who have given so much and expected so little in return.

Nominations will be accepted until April 3rd. Finalists will be chosen and notified on April 10th.

At Meadowlands Hilton

Friday, June 9th
7pm - 9pm
Semi-formal, plated dinner
Tickets on sale soon.
