Invermere animal lovers will have a bold opportunity to support a great cause on Saturday (February 16).
For the second year, the Fire Vixen Tattoo Parlour will be hosting the Puppy Love fundraiser; a day of tattooing dedicated to benefiting Global Animal Lovers (GALS). For a minimum donation of $80, the artists at Fire Vixen’s will be sharing their talents and tattooing animal-related designs all day — symbols around the size of a business card. All proceeds will supports GALs.
Continuing their efforts to “give back to the community a little and help some dogs,” shop owners Sarah Eastick and her fiancé Craig Smith have animal rescue dogs through GALs, and after Puppy Love’s success last year when more than a dozen people were inked, the team decided to hold the 2013 fundraiser.
Supporters who don’t want to commit to a tattoo can go to the Fire Vixen Tattoo Parlour for Puppy Love and enjoy a barbecue lunch, as well as a bake sale and gift basket raffle. Puppy Love II takes place between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturday.
While the parlour normally only serve scheduled clients, Fire Vixen will be taking walk-ins all day. However, appointments can be made ahead of time by calling 250-342-8844. In an effort to eliminate the need for shelters and euthanasia, GALs believe in a rational solution to the problem of pet overpopulation through spay and neuter procedures.
