Coastal Animal Rescue held a Family & Fur Festival to benefit the non-profit shelter on Saturday, July 14, at Cool Daddy’s Restaurant Bar & Grill in Surfside Beach.
Featured were adoptable spayed or neutered cats and dogs, which have current shots and have been micro-chipped.
The event included a low-price rabies clinic.
Donated homemade bake goods were sold by Christina Spence and Krystal Salone from Cool Daddy’s Restaurant, which hosted the festival to benefit the Coastal Animal Rescue adoption center, 1288 Limestone Drive, Murrells Inlet. Diane Salone coordinated and baked for the sale.
Modeling bows at Princess & Pup Bows were Madison Tellekamp, age 13, and her doggy friend, Flower, 8 months.
Tellekamp was helping Jessica Hoffman, owner, Princess & Pup Bows. Hoffman features custom built bows at the Princess & Pup Store in Hudson’s Surfside Market.
Lisa Sanders fed her own mixed-breed dog, Jack, and had an adoptable dog in a cage.
She said she helps Coastal Animal Rescue and also does “her own thing” in attempting to assist animals needing a home.
She found and took in Jack who had been wondering around her neighborhood for several days.
Nick Barr carefully carried his dog, Chi Chi, in a frontal pouch at the fund-raising event, also was sponsored by MoonStone Beads and Mads Mod Dog Collars, which recently opened in the Cool Daddy's shopping center and makes custom hand-make pet items.
