On Saturday, February 21, from 7:00 p.m. to midnight, the Baby Boomers Bash Dance will be held at the Athenian Ballroom, 500 S. Main Street in Elkhart. Parking is available in the covered garage in the rear.

The dance is sponsored by Second Chance Small Dog Rescue, a nonprofit group that provides foster homes for abused or abandoned small dogs. After providing temporary care and shelter for the unwanted dogs, the group seeks to have them adopted by persons willing to provide a good permanent home for a pet.

According to Sabrina Gall, the group’s events coordinator, the $10 admission fee will include the dance, a silent auction, food, and beverages. Attendees, who must be 21 years old, can purchase cocktails, if so desired.

The funds raised at the dance are used for the direct care of the foster dogs, providing food, the expense of spaying or neutering, physical check-ups, shots, and other health care needs. This enables the volunteers to care for the foster dogs without any financial burden.

Harriet Edwards of Bristol has successfully fostered and adopted several pets of her own through the group, including a small Chihuahua named “Skeeter”. Skeeter suffered several serious health issues when the group first discovered her trapped under a home. Skeeter has fully recovered thanks to her placement into the program and Harriet’s caring home.

Brenda Spence of Bristol is a long-time member of the dog rescue group, offering her house as a haven for unwanted small dogs. Brenda has postponed a trip to Florida so that she can take part in the fundraiser dance on February 21.

Second Chance holds an “adoption event” on the first Saturday of each month from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Pet Supplies Plus, 4024 Elkhart Road in Goshen, next to the Steak ‘n Shake Restaurant. Those interested in adopting a small dog can see the animals and ask questions of their sponsors.

Dogs available for adoption can also be seen on a website used by Second Chance Small Dog Rescue: www.petfinder.com/shelters/in232.html.
