Do Dogs Really Play Poker?!?!?

October 22, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Cary, NC – Mention animals and Art and often the first thing that comes to people’s minds is the whimsical painting of several breeds playing cards around a green felt table. The Cary Gallery of Artists hopes to broaden people’s perceptions and at the same time benefit the stray, abandoned, and homeless animals of the Triangle.

On Friday, October 26, 2007 the Gallery will be hosting a silent auction with all proceeds benefiting Second Chance Pet Adoptions and the Independent Animal Rescue. The auction is been held from 6:00 – 9:00 PM. Along with the chance to bid on original works by local artists there will be hors d’oeuvres and refreshments.

The Cary Gallery of Artists, a non-profit organization, opened in 2005 as a venue for local artists to display their works and talents. They currently display works for over two dozen local artists in mediums that specialize in Oil, Acrylic, Pastels, Watercolors, Stained glass, Fused Glass, Jewelry, and Pottery.

Second Chance Pet Adoptions was founded in 1987 and became a bona fide 501 (c) (3) non-profit rescue organization in 1989. Second Chance's mission is to rescue abandoned and stray cats and dogs, provide excellent care for each pet and match each pet with the best home for its needs, in order to ensure a long lifetime of safety, love and companionship. Second Chance also encourages responsible pet ownership through education, advocacy, programs and services. Adoptathons are held every weekend both offsite and at the current facility. The facility is open to the public every Saturday and Sunday from 12 to 3.
