Pints for Pups: Raise a glass for rescue

High Sierra Animal Rescue (HSAR) is teaming up with the Brewing Lair for the third annual Pints for Pups fundraiser, on Saturday, July 13, at the Brewing Lair on Highway 70 in Blairsden.

Pints for Pups begins at 4 p.m., and culminates with a free concert by the Tens from 6 to 8:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Friendly dogs on leash are welcome.

Susan and Rich Delano, owners of the Brewing Lair, are generously donating a portion of beer sales during the event to HSAR, so patrons are encouraged to designate a driver and support the dogs.

HSAR will host a drawing with items donated by local businesses to help raise money for their no-kill rescue in Portola. Pint glasses, T-shirts, and other HSAR merchandise will be available for purchase with profits directly benefiting the community’s homeless animals.

Adoptable dogs will also be at the event, ready to make new friends and find their forever homes, and HSAR will host fun activities for dogs and their families.

The Brewing Lair has many amenities for adults and children to enjoy, such as ping-pong tables, corn hole, a disc golf course, picnic grounds and barbecue area. Red Truck, a gourmet and organic food truck business based in Truckee, will be serving sustainable food with bold flavors throughout the event.

The Tens from Los Angeles will entertain the crowd with a free concert from 6 to 8 p.m. Their music is described as raw, funky, soul, and they are known for getting a crowd up and dancing.

Pints for Pups is a fun community event for the entire family, and a great way to show your support for HSAR’s rescue work, which has now spanned 20 years.

High Sierra Animal Rescue is a no-kill, nonprofit animal rescue organization, and all donations are tax deductible. Founded in 1999, HSAR has placed over 4,500 of animals into loving homes. The rescue is funded solely through donations, monthly giving, and fundraising events. As expenses continue to rise and the number of neglected or abandoned animals continues to grow, HSAR needs support to continue this important community service.
