The seventh annual Purr’n Pooch Foundation for Animals Sunset Summer Gala took place on August 17, 2016 at The Channel Club in Monmouth Beach, NJ. The event drew 350 people and raised $80,000 to support the animal rescue and rehabilitation work of the Foundation’s grantees.
Since 2010, Purr’n Pooch Foundation for Animals has awarded dozens of grants to non-profit animal rescue and welfare organizations since its founding, ensuring that organizations helping animals in need are getting proper funding and help from outside sources. The Foundation awards annual grants to non-profit, no-kill animal and marine mammal rescue and welfare organizations. Funds raised from the gala will help continue to support these heroic organizations.
