Animal lovers are invited to raise a glass to a Sarasota, Florida no-kill shelter/sanctuary’s ongoing efforts to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome Rovers in need during Charity Bar Night– an evening filled with dogged devotion for Satchel’s Last Resort.
Stepping into the real life role of animal advocate for the second time this month, Judy Landers Niedenfuer–who fans of classic TV series will recognize from her stints on Vega$, BJ and the Bear and Madame’s Place– will join her daughters Kristy Landers Niedenfuer and Lindsey Landers Niedenfuer Leins from the pop/rock band Official Hot Mess (whose songs have provided the soundtrack for such shows as My Super Sweet 16, The Hills and Jersey Shore)– to act as guest bartenders at the fundraiser. The celebrity family recently helped to raise approximately $5,000 for the paws cause during an August 3rd a Yappy Hour event.
A proud pet parent to five dogs, the Sarasota Herald-Tribune reports that Judy Landers played a vital role in the rescue of two of our four-legged friends who were facing their fates in a kill shelter. Reaching out to Satchel’s Last Resort, who took both dogs in, one of the fortunate Fidos was adopted by the star, while Landers– a young adult Shepherd mix named in honor of the celebrity who helped to save his life– is one of the dogs and cats at Satchel’s Last Resort who are hoping to land starring roles in the hearts and homes of a forever family.
Proceeds from the Charity Bar Night will benefit the animal shelter/sanctuary, which offers comfort and care for adoptable canines and cats as well as a forever home for companion animals deemed unadoptable.
When: August 28, 2013 from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Where: Polo Grill and Bar at 10670 Boardwalk Loop in Lakewood Ranch, Florida
