‘Dancing For Dogs’ Event Benefits Local Shelter

DETROIT (CBS Detroit) – Employees at Last Day Dog Rescue in Livonia would rather take animals into their own homes than see them euthanized. The rescue recovers dogs from shelters that euthanize or sell animals for scientific research, temporarily takes care of them from home and gives them a second chance at finding new owners.

Last Day Dog Rescue will partner with Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Bloomfield Hills for “Dancing for Dogs.” On Saturday, July 28 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., residents can meet and adopt dogs at the studio or donate $10 to the cause and take a 20-minute private dance lesson.

Fred Astaire dance instructor Terri Herrick said all dogs deserve the chance to live in a happy home.

“Dogs found in shelters are there for many reasons; some are owner surrenders, strays, cruelty or abuse cases and some dogs are found abandoned, left to fend for themselves in vacant homes, fields, ditches. Some are even being tied out in the woods and left to starve,” Herrick said. “We don’t discriminate and feel that each of these dogs, no matter their size, age, color or the reason they are there, deserve a second chance at life…we help all those we can.”

All proceeds will benefit Last Day Dog Rescue. There will also be live performances by students at the studio.
