Boca Raton, FL (May 27, 2014) – Tri-County Animal Rescue, the region’s largest 100% no-kill 501(c) 3 animal rescue nonprofit, is teaming up with California Pizza Kitchen(CPK) at Town Center at Boca Raton to co-host six weekly “Tri-County Thursdays” at the eatery beginning June 5th to raise much-needed funds to support the mission of TCAR that operates 100% on donations. TCAR supporters and patrons of CPK need only to print out and bring in a “Tri-County Thursdays” flyer (available from the TCAR website at, show the flyer on their mobile device, or mention to their server that they wish to participate in the CPK program to donate 20% of purchases to the rescue center, including dine-in, take-out, catering and all beverages.
In addition to raising money for TCAR, each of the weekly “Tri-County Thursdays” at CPK will also showcase “ready to adopt” dogs next to the entrance of the newly renovated restaurant located near Nordstom at 6000 Glades Road, Boca Raton. Two “sets of pets” will be looking to find their “furever homes”, during the first shift from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and a second from 5:00 p.m to 8:00 p.m.
According to TCAR Executive Director Suzi Goldsmith, this weekly fundraising and adopt-stop enables TCAR to continue its life-saving work of restoring wholeness on a daily basis to puppies, kittens, dogs and cats in need while providing a safe home, comfort, nutritious food, lots of tender loving care and veterinary treatment until they can be adopted. “We encourage all pet lovers to come out, mingle and dine or take-out large orders on Thursdays for office lunches, family dinners, and birthday parties,” she added.
“CPK is excited for the opportunity to help these loving animals find the ‘furever’ homes they are desperately hoping for,” said Michael Hanzas, CPK general manager at Town Center at Boca Raton. “Tri-County is passionate, compassionate and committed to its cause, and we feel good about supporting its efforts — as an important part of our give-back to the community — knowing that the funds raised at CPK will go directly toward saving lives.”
Saving lives in Palm Beach, Broward, Dade and Martin counties and beyond, TCAR is a protective haven to thousands of abandoned, abused or neglected dogs and cats from other facilities in South Florida, Treasure Coast and as far as Sarasota, Alabama, Tennessee, Oklahoma and Louisiana. A top-rated animal rescue center, Tri County has rescued more than 42,000 animals since its inception, offering homeless pets a welcoming forever home, either on campus or through carefully vetted adoptions that total more than 3,000 per year.
