Dog-lovers take heed: Starting this Friday, November 16, and continuing every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday through December 2, The Amanda Foundation, a no-kill shelter in Beverly Hills, will be setting up camp along Two Rodeo. In an effort to place ALL of their current dogs, volunteers will be posted outside of every boutique along the cobblestone promenade from 2:00- 6:00 PM. Each volunteer will have one Amanda Foundation dog with them, ready for adoption. That’s 20 volunteers, with 20 dogs, every day for four weekends straight.
And guess what? They need volunteers. If you have four hours to spare on any of those weekends, please sign up. I’ll be there for sure this coming Friday, and most likely a few of the other days. It’s a really easy, relaxing way to help a great organization and find a dog a home. (I wrote about my experience volunteering with Amanda here back in August). Even if you don’t volunteer, drop by for the silent auctions at boutiques like Tiffany & Co., all of which will benefit Amanda Foundation.
