JOIN US for the Third Annual Holiday Hops for Hearts, benefitting the Plankton Fund of the Friends of the Cleveland Kennel (FOCK)! The Plankton Fund provides grants to rescue organizations who pull and treat our heartworm positive dogs, helping us save the lives of dogs like those pictured.
The event will run from 6-8pm on Giving Tuesday (November 28) at Forest City Brewery. There will be a multitude of exciting silent auction and raffle baskets in addition to a variety of snacks from local Cleveland favorites and delicious beer from Forest City Brewery. We rely on donations from this event to provide medical care to heartworm positive dogs at the City of Cleveland Kennel.
Tickets are limited! Reserve yours today at the link below. Regular ticks cost $25, while VIP tickets cost $40.
The Plankton Fund is named for Plankton, who arrived to the City of Cleveland Kennel in 2014 and tested positive for heartworm. Unfortunately, the disease had already progressed to the late stages and he passed away in the arms of loving volunteers before we were able to get him the treatment he so desperately needed due to lack of available funds. In his honor, and in the memory of all the dogs that came before him, volunteers created The Plankton Fund in response to the limited options available for the heartworm positive dogs that come into the kennel due to the high cost of heartworm treatment. Since then, 64 dogs have been able to receive lifesaving treatment, which would not have been possible without the generosity of the community.
So please come join us for a fun night and support a great cause!
