Come out and support the Fresno Humane Animal Services fundraiser and dog adoption showcase hosted by Gazebo Gardens on Sunday, March 25th from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. The Fresno Humane Animal Services is raising money for the enhanced medical care needed for orthopedic surgeries and parvovirus treatment. Children under the age of two are free. Tickets are $20 and include dinner from the El Premio Mayor’s or Ganesha Masala’s food truck, a beverage and a raffle ticket. The venue features a nursery garden in bloom, local outdoor artwork, DJ’d music and various seating areas, including tables for large groups.

DJ Rey will be playing music throughout the event. There will also be a staged dog show featuring some of the most adorable, adoptable dogs the Human Society has to offer in hopes that they all find a loving home. Additional raffle tickets will also be sold for those who want to increase their winning chances and donate more to the cause: one ticket for $1, 12 tickets for $10 dollars and 25 tickets for $20. There will be several prizes to choose from. This event is family friendly and dogs are welcomed too, as long as they are dog and people friendly, on a leash, and owners clean up after them.

For anyone who wishes to contribute, but is unable to attend this event, there are other ways to help out the Fresno Humane Animal Services such as being a volunteer, donating money, or purchasing an item from their Amazon wish list of things that will make shelter animals more happy, healthy and comfortable.
