Make a new furry friend while learning about local rabbit rescue. Rabbit Wranglers is an all volunteer-staffed network of foster homes that rescues abused, neglected and abandoned rabbits; assists shelters with their overflow population and high maintenance cases; provides rabbits, primarily those with medical and behavior issues, safe harbor and state-of-the-art care; and finds them loving and permanent indoor homes. The organization also provides a variety of services to rabbit owners including boarding, grooming and medical respite. Representatives and rabbits will be on hand! www.RabbitWranglers.org/
Along with these special guests, The Cotton Factory and TeeRex Syndicate will provide East End Brewery Beer, and the Franktuary will bring gourmet hot dogs for purchase.
The Pittsburgh Tote Bag Project is always in need of new or gently used totes. Donations of tote bags, canned foods, hygiene products or pet goodies will be accepted. Anyone who donates will be entered to win a free tee from the shop. tote4pgh.blogspot.com/
