The Bianca Rae Foundation teamed up with The Gardens on El Paseo and El Paseo Village to host the first ever “The Gardens to the Rescue” adoption event. Over 10 retailers at the shopping center hosted adoptable dogs and cats from seven local animal organizations. Humane Society of the Desert, Loving All Animals, Coachella Valley Animal Campus, Living Free, the Palm Springs Animal Shelter, Whiskers and Purrs and Virtual Rescue all brought adoptable dogs and cats.
People from all valley cities stopped by looking for a new member of their family. We are so grateful to everyone who came by, bought raffle ticket (proceeds benefited the Bianca Rae Foundation and Humane Society of the Desert), and of course those who saved a life by adopting.
At day's end, 13 dogs and cats were adopted out! There were many applications filled out and meet-and-greets set up, so stay tuned for final adoption numbers!
