Garage sale to benefit Pups in Peril

Published 1:19 pm Friday, June 9, 2017

Pups in Peril, a nonprofit dog rescue group, will hold a garage sale where 100 percent of proceeds go back into their program.

Angela Dodson, with Pups in Peril, said the event will be from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday behind Professional Bail Bonds, 5053 U.S. 60.

Definitely no early bird shoppers allowed and patrons as asked not to bother the bail bonds business, as they have nothing to do with the garage sale itself. The area where the sale will occur is across from the prison area.

People have been donating towards the garage sale for two months so there are a lot of items available.

“We have really nice furniture, baby furniture, and office and home furniture. There’s a lot of clothing, jewelry and more,” Dodson said.

Pups In Peril, is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to saving dogs of all ages and breeds by rescuing, rehabilitating and placing them in loving forever homes. Pups In Peril is a no kill, volunteer rescue organization, serving the Golden Triangle Area of Southeast Texas. It is our mission to rescue dogs left homeless and in danger for whatever reason, according to the group’s Facebook page.

“One hundred percent of proceeds will go to Pups in Peril,” she said. “This will help with vet bills. We spay and neuter, and for microchip, emergency care, heartworm treatment. Anything they need.”

There are currently 90 dogs in the foster program at this time and the group will pay for the dog’s food while in the foster home if needed.

“We never euthanize a dog,” she said. “We have had dogs in our program for over two years. We hold on to them until they find a home.”

The volunteers with Pups in Peril stay in contact with local animal shelters and often pull the dogs from there.

Proceeds will also go to help with upgrading the group’s rescue barn that currently houses about 30 dogs right now.

“It is a full blown operation there,” she said. “Volunteers spend time cleaning the kennels, feeding the dogs, walking them.”

Volunteers and foster homes are also needed to assist with the group.
