|Main Line Animal Rescue's Wag' N Train Circles a Huge Success!
Starring ... Jack Russell Crowe and Renee Zellwagger — from the Producers of "Cat Ballou" and "How the Westie was won ..."
Nearly 600 loyal supporters joined Main Line Animal Rescue's Wag 'N Train, for the first annual fundraising event at Pickering Meade Farm, the shelter's new home in Chester Springs, PA.
Wag 'N Train treasures were generously donated by many of the area's finest vendors, eating establishments, businesses and special friends to MLAR. The funds raised will go toward the cost of veterinary care, grooming, food and overall operating expenses, as the very best "home on the range" is found for each animal in MLAR's care.
Every year, the organization rescues and re-homes hundreds of unwanted companion animals. MLAR receives national attention as the organization's founder, Bill Smith, continues to bring attention to the plight of animals facing euthanasia in overcrowded shelters and creates billboard campaigns aimed against commercial breeders to help educate the public about puppy mills. Through its many friends and supporters, MLAR is making an importance difference in the care of all companion animals.
