I always breathe a sigh of relief when we hit March. We’re almost there people – it’s almost spring! Although there are not a lot of dog friendly events this month, March is officially the month to get out and support local rescues. From a Mardi Gras celebration to a rock show, there are a lot of fun ways to support dogs in the community this month.
Here’s my run down of what to do in March:
Zone Car Lounge, W. 58th. Cleveland
This fundraiser for Muttley Crew will feature live music, all you can drink beer and food, a burlesque show and a silent auction. Tickets can be bought in advance for $20, or at the door for $25. Visit www.muttleycrewrescue.com for more information.
