Mingle with some of the Lowcountry’s cutest and most eligible dogs at the first Mutt Mixer concert event supporting pet rescue from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 13 at AutoNation Subaru Hilton Head.
Guests will enjoy complimentary hors d’oeuvres, beverages, door prizes, and live music by the bluegrass band “Lowcountry Boil.” Fee-waived pet adoptions will be available at the event, made possible through a generous grant from The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).
“This event will touch the lives of homeless dogs waiting to find their perfect place in this world,” PAL President Amy Campanini said in a news release. “By bringing shelter dogs together with potential adopters in a fun and festive atmosphere, AutoNation Subaru Hilton Head is helping give these animals a second chance at life.”
The first 100 people to arrive at the Mutt Mixer with a pet supply or monetary donation for PAL’s Adoption Center in Okatie will receive a free event T shirt. The party is “BYOD” – Bring Your Dog. Guests are invited to bring their own dogs to the party, as AutoNation Subaru Hilton Head is a dog-friendly dealership.
“We are excited to invite the community to enjoy our inaugural ‘concert, cocktails, and pet rescue’ event,” AutoNation Subaru Hilton Head Customer Relations Manager & Delivery Specialist Bill Harper said. “Helping homeless animals find a wonderful, forever home is at the heart of our ‘Subaru Loves Pets’ mission. Getting to host a live concert event celebrating PAL’s 12th year of saving lives in our community is icing on the birthday cake!”
Attendees may RSVP to be eligible for door prizes at https://muttmixer2022.eventbrite.com. As another way to support PAL’s no kill animal rescue programs, AutoNation Subaru Hilton Head will donate $100 to PAL for every dog or cat adopted in October.
“We are so grateful to AutoNation Subaru Hilton Head for helping the underdogs,” Campanini said. “They sure know how to make a dog (and a cat’s) day.”
