To raise awareness of the importance of pet adoption, Studio 6 Fitness and White Rock Dog Rescue Dallas have teamed together to host a pet adoption day on Saturday, June 1, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Studio 6 Fitness’ Lakewood location (Arboretum Village, 7317 Gaston Ave., Suite 150, Dallas, TX 75214). The studio is also collecting donations of dry, baked dog treats for the group through the end of June.
White Rock Dog Rescue was founded by Lilia and Clay Hollis in 1993 when they moved to the area. They discovered how many neighborhood dogs were abandoned, and it led them to help one dog, and then another. Soon, they had multiple dogs who had become family, and now they’ve joined with many animal lovers to help them in their efforts.
Lilia Hollis said, “We want to help those dogs who have been abandoned to find their forever homes. We have a wonderful network of people who help us in our rescue efforts, and we place about 120 dogs per year in new homes. We invite you to come meet some of our furry friends.”
In addition to pet adoptions, Studio 6 is hosting a free community class called “Plank for Paws” to raise awareness of dogs needing homes. People can sign up online at https://studio6fitness.com, limited availability.
Those adopting a pet will receive a free t-shirt. T-shirts will also be available for purchase for $40, and half of the proceeds will go to White Rock Dog Rescue.
Elizabeth Lindberg, founder and trainer of Studio 6 Fitness, said, “We want to support the people and organizations where our clients live and work, and White Rock Dog Rescue is doing phenomenal work to help pets. As a dog lover, I hope to encourage even more people to meet these furry friends and take one home.”
