The goal of the Bowl-a-rama is to raise much needed awareness and funds for local animal rescue organizations during the summer heat when it is virtually impossible to conduct outdoor activities. Despite raising over $425,000 in its first three years (98% of which went directly to the participating animal welfare organizations as well as emergency veterinary costs for animals in their care), the need for is greater than ever. On behalf of the animals that will benefit from your generosity, thank you for helping us to achieve this year's goal of $250,000! We raised $1,400.00 for Racing Home.

Pictures taken at the Bowl-a-Rama coming soon!
