Res­cu­ing pooches one beer at a time

Marlborough Express - The Saturday Express, Marlborough - - WHAT’S ON - CARLY GOOCH

Cus­tomers will be able to see if their pooch re­ally is pint sized at the Bark & Brews event in Nel­son on June 23.

The Craft Beer De­pot is invit­ing pun­ters to take along their dogs for an after­noon of fun with one dol­lar from every beer sold go­ing to two Nel­son dog res­cue or­gan­i­sa­tions.

The bar’s court­yard at Wakatu Square carpark will come alive with a fair-like at­mos­phere, live mu­sic, puppy kiss­ing booth and some­thing for the whole fam­ily to en­joy – with or with­out a dog.

Craft Beer De­pot man­ag­ing direc­tor Bran­don Tur­nage said rais­ing money for The Nel­son ARK and Sec­ond Chance was some­thing close to his heart after fos­ter­ing a num­ber of dogs through the or­gan­i­sa­tions.

‘‘We’re dog lovers through and through.’’

The Nel­son ARK takes res­cue dogs, trains them up and gets them in shape for for­ever homes while turn­ing the lives around of dis­con­nected youth.

Sec­ond Chance finds for­ever homes for dogs that have been dumped, abused or ne­glected.
