Adopt-A-Dog of Greenwich to host Racing For Rescue fund-raiser

Tails are wagging across Westchester County this week as Grand Prix New York (GPNY) announced it will host a fundraising event to support the local animal rescue charity Adopt-A-Dog.

Racing for Rescues, an event in which participants can have fun racing Go-Karts while raising money for Armonk-based Adopt-A-Dog, will be held Thursday, Oct. 15, from 6 to 8 p.m.

“I’m a huge dog lover, so when I heard Adopt-A-Dog was looking for a new and unique way to hold a fundraiser I thought Grand Prix would be the perfect place,” said Nat Mundy, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for GPNY. “Adopt-A-Dog’s dedication to animal rescue in the Westchester community is extraordinary and we are proud to host Racing for Rescues.”

At Adopt-A-Dog’s Armonk facility, staff and volunteers care for over 35 dogs at a time and more than 150 animals a year including dogs of all ages, breeds and sizes.

Adopt-A-Dog Executive Director Kristen Rice said the organization has set a fundraising goal of $3,000 for the event.

“Adopt-A-Dog is so thankful to Grand Prix for providing us with the opportunity to showcase our animals and collect the necessary funds to help care for them,” said Rice. “The biggest expense to our rescue is veterinary care, which is why this event is so important to us. Each and every dog has different needs, and different costs associated with those needs. The money raised at ‘Racing for Rescues’ will offset those costs including providing vaccines, preventative care and direct care from shelter staff.”

Pets will not be permitted at the event, but Adopt-A-Dog will have information, including pictures/profiles of the dogs currently available for adoption, on hand for potential adopters.

Two tracks will be provided, one for adults and one for children ages eight and older to race; twin seats will also be available for adults to drive younger children who want to participate but are not old enough to race by themselves.

Individual tickets are $50. Light finger foods and non-alcoholic beverages will be served.

All participants must be pre-registered. To register, visit adopt-a-dog.org/.
