"Paradise Animal Rescue" is holding its ninth annual “Project Warm Paws” gala fundraiser themed “Just Another Day in Paradise”, Saturday March 22nd, at 6:00 p.m. This year’s theme will include a new tropical ambiance along with a buffet dinner and dessert, live and silent auction, games, raffles and fun at The Lapeer Country Club.

This is the biggest and most important fundraiser of the year for Paradise Animal Rescue. If you would like to help out the cause with a donation for the auction. They’re seeking auction items like weekend get-a-ways, jewelry, quality hand-crafted items, sports equipment, men’s toys, wine packages, garden décor, large gift baskets and more. Again this year you’ll have a chance to win a stay at a beautiful 3 master bedroom villa on St. Martin Island.

So far Paradise Animal Rescue has successfully spayed and neutered, vaccinated and found homes for over 1,500 homeless cats and dogs. Many of these animals have received extensive medical care for a variety of conditions including heartworm treatment, frostbite, hypothermia, infections, parasites, fractures, dental disease, neglect and abuse.

Tickets will be $50/person, $85/couple or $300/table for eight and can be purchased at Paradise Animal Rescue, Thorpe Animal Hospital and online. Please call 810-358-6277 to make a donation to the auction or to sponsor this event with a cash donation. Visit parpets.org for more information.
