Dog Event! @ McKay Used Books
Jan 12 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm

We are super excited to host a Super Dog Event on Saturday January 12, 2018!

From 12-4, we are hosting author Dawn Michele McCarty. Dawn grew up in Florida and Texas and would often bring home stray animals. She has lived in Manassas since 2005 and her first book Being Different Rocks!, is based on Mickie-D, a dog she adopted from a rescue.

From 1-4, Dawn will be joined by Mutt Love Rescue! They will be joining us with some furry friends to raise funds and provide information, and answer questions about their organization. Mutt Love Rescue, is a no-kill, all-volunteer group with the mission of spending virtually every nickel raised directly on the medical care and temporary housing of the dogs we take in pending each of his or her placement in loving, responsible homes. We rely heavily on foster homes to care for our dogs until permanent homes can be found. Unfortunately, however, there aren’t enough foster homes available for all the dogs we take in. With your help, we can do so much more and save so many more lives.
