Canine Pet Rescue Hosts 5th Annual Bikes, Barks & Bar-B-Q

5th annual bikes barks and bar-b-qmRELEVANCE is pleased to announce that we have partnered with animal rescue organization Canine Pet Rescue (CPR) on a pro bono basis to assist with marketing.  The group’s largest fundraising event is its annual charity motorcycle ride Bikes, Barks and Bar-B-Q that is coming up on Saturday, May 16. Look for press releases, media relations and social media updates from the mRELEVANCE team to promote this event!

Biker registration begins at 8 a.m. and the ride starts at 9 a.m. from the Gwinnett County Detention Center located at 2900 University Parkway in Lawrenceville, GA. The ride ends around noon at Big Sky Farm/Canine Pet Rescue located at 2625 Jones Phillips Road, Dacula, GA.  After brief opening remarks, the BBQ activities will begin and last until 2:30 p.m.

Proceeds from the event will benefit Canine Pet Rescue to support ongoing operations including veterinary care for dogs in the rescue. Carla Brown, President and Chief Dog In Charge of Canine Pet Rescue states, “The majority of the money spent by Canine Pet Rescue goes to veterinary bills. The dogs we rescue have typically been out on their own for awhile and have health issues that are costly that need attention.”

There are lots of fun activities at Bikes, Barks and Bar-B-Q including music, dog demonstrations, a raffle, delicious BBQ, a silent auction and pet photography. Families and well-mannered, leashed and vaccinated pets are welcome!

To register for the event, visit Canine Pet Rescue online. Registration is $25 for motorcycle riders and $10 for passengers, which includes a BBQ lunch and t-shirt. Virtual riders pay $15 and also receive a t-shirt. BBQ meals are $10 for adults and $5 for children.

The event is held in memory of the late Trey Phillips, a local attorney, who was a CPR volunteer and participated in the BBB ride.  Trey was a decorated Army veteran who was killed in 2012 on Hwy 316 while riding his motorcycle.

As a 501c3 non-profit organization, Canine Pet Rescue survives and thrives on donations. It focuses on saving German Shepherds from high-kill shelters in the South but also takes in other breeds as well. Dogs that enter the Canine Pet Rescue facilities are crate trained, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, micro chipped and treated with flea and heart worm preventative care. Once given basic care and treatment, the dogs are put through an extensive temperament evaluation and offered for adoption.
