Inaugural event proceeds benefit Tri-County Animal Rescue’s Medical Fund that subsidizes vet care, surgeries and services at TCAR’s onsite clinic for financially challenged pet owners and first responders. Due to Covid-19’s economic impact, the little-known, yet critical community health need is escalating.

Since there are all types of devoted, loving moms, Tri-County Animal Rescue (TCAR) will launch Mother’s Day week by celebrating “paw-loving” moms at its Inaugural Moms & Pups “Bark & Brunch,” an elegant, outdoor “fun and fund” raiser on Sunday, May 2 at The Addison in Boca Raton from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Addressing a timely growing Covid-impacted community wellness need, “Bark & Brunch” proceeds will be directed toward TCAR’s Medical Fund that subsidizes low-cost, full-service veterinary and animal hospital services at TCAR for pet owners who are financially challenged or experiencing economic setbacks due to Covid-19, as well as first responders.

To support their Boca Raton community’s only animal rescue shelter, “Bark & Brunch” attendees will enjoy an open-air, courtyard plated brunch and festivities for Pup Moms, their fur babies who are invited guests and their families. Plans include live music, free-flowing Bloody Mary and Bellini bars, a delicious doggie buffet, Mom & Pooch photo ops, raffles, Mother’s Day boutique gift shopping, giveaways and pampering swag bags. High-profile Boca Raton Pup Rescue Moms Marta Batmasian, Andrea Kline and Constance Scott will be honored that day who have long advocated for pet rescue and support of TCAR. All will be done in strict adherence to CDC, state and local Covid-19 guidelines.
