Valentine’s is a day in which we all think of loved ones and special dinners. This year, the Coco Animal Rescue and Education group (CARE) is sponsoring an additional way to show you care, in this case for the animals of our community. “Have A Heart; Give to CARE” is the theme of the second annual Valentine’s Day luncheon to be held at Coconutz Bar and Restaurant Feb. 14 from 1 to 4 p.m. The event will feature an extensive hot and cold buffet, drinks at reduced cost, prize drawings and an auction.
Tickets, priced at $15, are limited and are available at Coconutz or by calling Alice at 2670-1646 or Sandra at 2670-1823. Any tickets remaining will be sold at the door.
For more than two years, CARE has offered a variety of services for animals in Playas del Coco, the best known of which is a monthly, all-volunteer, low-cost spay and neuter clinic. Working with several veterinarians, local volunteers assist in staffing the clinic and regularly help injured animals found on our streets and beaches. The organization has made great strides in educating pet owners in pet care and nutrition, and has found a number of good homes for abandoned pets.
In addition to attending this fundraiser, consider making a donation to CARE, perhaps in the name of your own pet. Cash donations are always welcome, and pet food donations are especially appreciated.
While at Coconutz, meet new owner Dan Kusoski, whose many expansion plans include the already completed new bathrooms and expansion of the back bar in the weeks ahead.
