2021 Triangle-Area Animal Rescue Events

2021 Triangle-Area Animal Rescue Events

I always love to check out events that support local rescues. While yes, that has become a little tough (and different) due to the pandemic, there are still so many opportunities to support local rescues through virtual or socially distanced events. Here’s a roundup of rescue events I’ve found around Raleigh, Durham, Clayton and beyond. (And don’t worry, I’ll keep this updated as more events are announced!).

(The photo to the right is from a puppy yoga event I went to in 2019…I can’t wait until we can do things like that again!)
