Tri-County Animal Rescue is a no-kill nonprofit animal shelter working to prevent the killing of over 170,000 unwanted pets in Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach Counties each year. Sklar Furnishings has been involved with this group for several years—many of our staff have rescue dogs and many of our business associates and friends are committed to animal care as are we personally.
Since inception in July of 2001 (they took over an existing animal shelter) Tri-County Animal Rescue have been responsible for thousands of adoptions. As well they meet the needs of the animals with the best possible vet care and nutrition and due to their large volunteer base the dogs and cats receive lots of love and affection until they are adopted.
They manage to do this by ongoing fundraisers and Sklar Furnishings was thrilled to have the first Animal Bed Design contest this year. As you can see from the pictures it was a fun event that had everyone from Design students to jewelry designers to local architects getting involved. The beds were on display at the store—there were awards for all different categories and finally the beds were auctioned off as a final way to raise more money. We plan to make this a yearly event and remain committed to helping this most worthy organization continue to succeed.
