SEQUIM — Barks & Brews, a fundraiser for Pet Posse, is set for 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday at the Peninsula Taproom.
Pet Posse supporters can buy beer at the Peninsula Taproom at 210 W. Washington St., Suite 4, and make small donations for hamburgers and hot dogs on site. Tickets for door prizes will be available as well, with all proceeds from the event going to Pet Posse.
The mission of Pet Posse, a small volunteer organization that has operated in Clallam County since 2014, is to reunite lost pets with their families.
“This is a great organization,” said Randy Perry, a Sequim business owner and organizer of Barks & Brews.
“They’ve helped bring more than 2,500 animals home,” Perry added, “and they’re starting to do even more than that. They deserve our support.”
While the staff is all volunteers, running such a group costs a fair amount of money, members said.
Perry hopes to get “a couple hundred” attendees to support the organization.
Door prizes will include veterinary and grooming services from numerous local facilities, gift cards for area restaurants such as Oak Table Cafe, Kokopelli Grill, Coyote BBQ and Oasis Bar & Grill as well as gift baskets, Perry said.
Several businesses have made sponsorship donations as well, Perry said. They include Sweet Spot Sequim Inc., Rocha Family Auto Sales, Dan Shappie of Farmers Insurance, Bell Street Insurance (Allstate Insurance), RE/MAX Prime, A2Z Fencing, Black Reign Tattoo and Clear Water Bidets.
The full selection of Peninsula Taproom beverages will be available, and additional space outdoors in the parking lot will be blocked off for people to gather and talk.
Dogs will be welcome as long as they are well behaved and get along with other dogs, event organizers said.
Perry said several representatives of Pet Posse will be on hand, along with some of the animals they’ve helped rescue.
They’ll also bring their new pet ambulance that they’re now using for emergency animal transportation — a relatively new service Pet Posse is offering, along with their recent work to become a part of Clallam County’s emergency planning as an emergency animal shelter.
