Eling's Park will be having a unique fundraising event for "Floyd's Fund", on March 3 from 4:00 - 6:00 to raise money for an 'animal abuse awareness and prevention area' in the park. The area was created in honor of Floyd, a 7 pound chihuahua who was abused and murdered by his owner last year in Santa Barbara. Bring your kids and dogs to take part in this special afternoon. Tiles will be sold and your dog's paw print can be part of a mosaic created by local tile artist, Sheryl Wheeler. This mosaic represents our community's support for animal rights! The paw print tiles will cost $250 and will be used to support the educational area ,and for scholarships for our local dog rescues. Non profits teaching children about kindness to animals and anti-bullying education will have priority. World renowned sculptor and artist, Bud Buttoms, has created a statue of Floyd that will be unveiled at the event and placed in a small garden in rememberence of Floyd and as a reminder that animal abuse is an on-going problem in our communites. Our message: Look. Listen. Report Abuse.
Interested dog owners can simply attend, or reserve a tile by downloading an application from the Elings Park website. If you can not make it to the event you can reserve a time to make a tile at the Elings Park office, -which will continue on an ongoing basis until we run out of room!
In conjunction with Floyd's fundraiser it will be a "day of action" . Gretchen Lieff from "Daveys Voice" and Diana Basehart from The Basehart Foundation will speak as well as other animal rights activists.
Local animal rescues will be holding a silent march for all to join in honor of all abused animals.
Join us for a very special afternoon and let's all make a difference together!
