AARF, Animal Aid & Rescue benefit at Muttley Crew Cuts


Muttley Crew Cuts dog grooming across the street from Metropolitan market held its Muttster Mash 2011 fundraiser for AARF, Animal Aid & Rescue Foundation tonight. While a head count was difficult with all the scrambling and chasing, it seemed as though hundreds of dogs attended, but there were probably closer to 30. And those doggies donning costumes were pretty dog-gone spooky, if you consider a golden retriever with her tongue hanging out scary.

Solomon, an AARP dog, is about a year and a half, a pit bull missing one of his rear legs, is in training to be adopted out to someone with post traumatic stress disorder.
