Embark ended the month of August in style with an open air benefit concert, ‘A Hand to Help a Paw’. The event was put together by a group of dedicated volunteers who put their hearts and souls into everything from approaching sponsors to selling tickets and making decorations. A lineup of talented local artistes, all dog lovers themselves, entertained the crowd wearing special edition ‘I supported a dog with special needs’ concert tshirts. A tail-wagging auction added to the proceeds bringing the funds raised to a grand total of Rs 360,000. All proceeds will be used to cover boarding and food costs of Embark’s special needs dogs who have been unable to find homes; medical costs will be borne by Embark.
