We know you cry at those ASPCA Sarah McLachlan commercials. Quit that blubbering and actually support the dogs of Louisville at these two events for local rescues.
MisPits Barking Lot Boutique (Sept. 12) | 6203 Bardstown Road | Search Facebook | No cover | 8 a.m.-1 p.m.
Dog fans have united to put together a sale of name brand clothing, bicycles, jewelry, purses, electronics, tools, holiday decor and pet items — all benefiting medical funds for MisPits and Friends Rescue, which saves all dogs no matter the age, size or breed. Find brands like Michael Kors, Calvin Klein, Coach, Athleta, Lululemon, Express, Sperry, Sorrel and Victoria Secret. Masks are required for this outdoor event.
Dawg Days of Summer! (Sept. 13) | Eclipse Bank | 3827 Shelbyville Road | Search Facebook | No cover | 11 a.m.-2 p.m.
Grab a HurriKanes Gourmet hot “dawg” and a New Orleans Snowball in support of The Arrow Fund, a Louisville rescue tending to animals that are victims of “extreme torture, abuse, or neglect.” One of its rescues will be on the scene, Meatball, whose mobility has improved “from only being able to walk a few crouched steps before collapsing to being able to walk and play!” The Arrow Fund T-shirts, candles, masks, magnets and Kentucky Proud treats will also be available for purchase.
