Bardstown is going to the dogs June 28, at the first annual “Bark Bash” fundraising event to benefit Barktown Rescue and Bourbon City Bark Park.
Wickland, 550 Bloomfield Road in Bardstown, is the place to be Saturday, June 28, from 7:30 p.m. to midnight, rain or shine!
The event will feature a silent auction, various raffle games, catering by Lady Fingers and music by Bardstown’s own, Big Black Cadillac. Each ticket includes entry to the event, food, and two drink tickets. A cash bar will be available.
Currently, Barktown Rescue is completing renovations to the old Boston School building and grounds, making it a suitable shelter facility for the alarming number of abandoned, stray and surrendered animals rescued each day in and around Bardstown and Nelson County.
Bourbon City Bark Park is in the final stages of completion, and will soon be the perfect place for dog owners to socialize and exercise their canine companions.
Founded in 2009, Barktown Rescue has placed more than 1,600 dogs and puppies into loving homes. Their largest expense is the vet care for the animals that are rescued. Pets cannot be adopted until they are spayed or neutered, and often additional vet expenses are incurred for sick or injured animals. Barktown Rescue has helped provide funds for pet owners who cannot afford to alter their pets.
Barktown Rescue and Bourbon City Bark Park are 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organizations. Therefore, monetary donations and fair market value of items donated to the silent auction are tax deductible.
