Pam Gray, former Binghamtonian and caterer extraordinaire (namely Pam Gray Catering and Zazou) was spending the winter in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. While strolling along the streets she came upon a neglected, matted dog who appeared to be blind. Pam lured the pup to a friend's shop using some barbequed chicken she bought from a street vendor.
Upon arriving at her friend's shop, together they assessed the condition of the sweet dog and decided to call a cab and get her to the vet right away. Once at the vet, he noticed that it appeared she had recently had puppies. The vet recommended Pam bring the pup back to where she originally found her so that the dog could lead Pam to the puppies. She took the doggie back to the area she had found her in an effort to unite her with her puppies. Each day she want back but to no avail...no puppies could be found. Pam took her to get groomed and the groomer shaved off layers and layers of matting. She then made an appointment to have her little angel spayed. She was completely in love with her lucky find...she decided to name her "Lolita" and bring her back to the U.S. with her.
Join us for a special evening of delicious, light Mexican fare and music as we raise money for over 200,000 stray dogs in Juarez Mexico through their sister organization in New Mexico called Lap Dog Rescue. Many people have fled Juarez as a result of the prolonged drug use there and have left behind these strays.
The goal is to spay and neuter the really hard hit areas without veterinarian services and to do direct rescues of smaller dogs.
You’ll get to meet Lolita in person and we'll also have some yummy craft margaritas available at the cash bar. Our goal is to send some love back to Mexico! Tickets are now on sale at http://www.lostdogcafe.net/product/lolita/ They are $20 per person. Your ticket sale will be your donation to the charity. For more info see www.lapdogrescue.org
