Rock & Rescue at RiverWalk

Need yet another excuse to be near water this Memorial Day weekend? Well, get along, little doggies, to Rock & Rescue at RiverWalk Crossing in Jenks

The event, hosted by Oklahoma Alliance for Animals, a local nonprofit committed to reaching a day when no healthy, adoptable dog or cat is destroyed simply because it does not have a home, promises to be a doggone good time. Twitter is already hoppin' with updates from RiverWalk, and from the sound of things, everyone's rocking out to live music, snagging some mad noshes and ooo-ing and ah-ing and scooping up the pets available for adoption there. 

If you're in the market for a new dog, there's no better way to find one than through an adoption. Not only are you giving a homeless animal love, care and a place to call home (an act that I'm pretty sure earns you extra stars by your name in that little book the gatekeepers of gatekeepers lugs around), but you're also voting with your actions against some of the unsavory practices going on in the pet breeding industry. 

Rock & Rescue got started at 10 this morning and will finish up at 4 this afternoon, so there's plenty of time to get out there and experience some puppy love. Until you arrive, follow along on Twitter by following @billhandy, @dogdish@mattgalloway and @HomemakerHero.
