Time to grab some ‘pup corn’ and take in a flick with your four-legged friend, all in the name of a great cause.
No Hairs Ark Chinese Rescue is preparing to host an outdoor movie night at the Cameo Cinema in Belgrave, in an effort to support their cause in helping Chinese Crested dogs in need of some tender loving care.
‘Coco Charity for Cresties at Cameo’ will be held on Friday 29 December, from 8pm to 11pm, and organisers are hoping for further support.
As the only dedicated rescue service for the breed nationally, No Hairs Ark is passionate about helping out the hairless yet “extremely loyal” breed.
Operator Laura McDonough said the service started only by chance, after she started fostering an older Chinese Crested dog.
Through word of mouth, she began receiving further requests to care for Chinese Cresteds and the service was born.
“Since our beginning, we have tailored our life to suit our charges. We have moved up to the beautiful Dandenong Ranges to give our rescues more quiet and calm, and we are continuously undertaking personal study to further expand our skills to help these dogs,” she said.
All dogs are given veterinary care, where they are de-sexed, vaccinated and micro-chipped before being re-homed.
Meanwhile, movie-goers are encouraged to arrive before 8pm to get a great spot.
Bark and Bites will be selling doggy treats for the movie, including the ever-so-perfect pup corn.
Tickets for a raffle will be available, too.
Tickets are $20 each, with food and drink packages available.
BYO chair, or you can hire a chair or beanbag from Cameo from between $2 to $5.
