giant-paw-prints-rescueGiant Paw Prints Rescue of Valparaiso, Indiana, will host a Valentine’s fundraiser and silent auction on February 11th, 2015, in order to raise money for medical treatments of current fosters.

Giant Paw Prints Rescue (GPPR) will host the event on Wednesday, February 11th, at Figure Eight Brewery, 150 Washington Street, Valparaiso, Indiana. The event will begin at 6pm and end at 9pm. It is open to all ages. Giant Paw Prints will be selling Doggie Valentine’s that feature current adoptable dogs for $2 each. They will be displayed at Figure Eight Brewery for the remainder of the month. There will also be a silent auction featuring items from local artists, restaurants and shops.

This fundraiser is specifically geared towards raising funds for medical expenses of two current fosters, Diesel, a Mastiff, and Marmaduke, a Great Dane. GPPR has had to address various medical needs for both dogs since their rescue, including surgery and heartworm treatment.

Giant Paw Prints Rescue is an all-volunteer-based 501(c)3 Non-Profit Charitable Foundation founded in 2012. The goal of the organization is to rescue and re-home shelter and otherwise unwanted dogs. While they specialize in large breeds, they are an all-breed rescue. Dogs that have been rescued by GPPR are vetted and fostered until a forever family is found. In 2014, the organization rescued over 110 dogs from multiple states.
