Ingleside Village holds 'Shop for Paws' event | News
Some shoppers were able to get a few things for themselves and save a few lives in the process.
The Jack and Darcy shop teamed up with Critical Care for Animal Angels to help raise funds for the shelter.
People were able to browse the stores for a few things, and when they were done, browse for a four-legged companion.
For those that weren't in the market for a furry friend, their part was done by donating or simply buying something for themselves.
Shoppers that brought in dog food were able to get 10% off their purchases at the grand opening of Magnolia Lace.
The other shops gave 15% of their proceeds made to the shelter.
Most of the donations went to a dog named Gurgle that has a rare leg disease and will be getting surgery next week.
Coordinator Ruth Watts says it's OK to love shopping for yourself, but rescue dogs need a little love, too.
"I think it's really important for people to be aware that rescue dogs are sweet, too, and they need a lot of love. Every dog that we were able to play with today was so sweet and so appreciative and loving, and it just shows that you can get a good dog for a good price that's good for your family or great for you no matter what your situation is," says Watts.
