Raising a Glass for Rescue

On July 17, supporters of the Washington Animal Rescue League (WARL) raised their glasses as Board Chair Roger Marmet hosted a wine tasting at his Ripple Restaurant & Wine Bar in Cleveland Park. Proceeds from the event featuring delicious vegetarian and vegan hors d’oeuvres with wines from dog friendly vineyards will support the League’s Disaster Rescue Fund. WARL President and CEO Gary Weitzman expressed his appreciation and urged everyone to visit the League. The recently acquired 42,000-square-foot property adjacent to the current shelter will more than double the existing facility. The League’s goal through a capital campaign is to open the National Center for Rehabilitation for Animals to coincide with its centennial in 2014 in pursuit of its commitment for the “rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of animals who have nowhere else to go.”
