On Tuesday, Feb. 28, your choice of dining venue can help save the lives of area dogs and cats. Many Asheville-area restaurants have chosen to participate in the Animal Compassion Network’s ninth annual Dine to Be Kind benefit. Portions of the proceeds those restaurants generate during breakfast, lunch and dinner will benefit the ACN’s efforts to help low-income pet owners afford to have their pets spayed and neutered. And don’t forget: take-out orders help, too.
Founded in 1997, Animal Compassion Network is WNC’s largest nonprofit animal welfare organization. The organization’s mission is to end the euthanasia of healthy, adoptable animals and find them lifelong, stable and loving homes. The Dine to Be Kind benefit is an effort to curb pet overpopulation.
Restaurant owners interested in participating in the Dine to Be Kind event may call Ann McMartin at 674-9722. For more information and list of participating restaurants, visit http://www.animalcompassionnetwork.org.
