Yappy Hour to benefit dog shot in the leg

The Australian Cattle Dog Rescue Association hosts Yappy Hour from 5 to 7 p.m. June 26 at Mueller’s General Store and Restaurant in Easton.

The event will feature a doggie costume contest, raffles, a doggie talent contest and door prizes. Dogs are welcome.

The cost is $5 and proceeds will support a dog named Winston as he heals from heartworm treatment and surgery to repair both his femur and knee from gun shots.

Dr. Guy DeNardo of Quakertown Animal Hospital saved Winston’s leg, putting a plate and screws from Winston’s hip to his knee, said Eileen Apple.

Winston, who was rescued from Georgia, is leash walking for a few more weeks, but will soon be able to swim in order for him to gain strength in his leg, Apple added.

Mueller’s General Store and Restaurant is at 3205 South Delaware Drive.

For information, contact Apple at apple.eileen@yahoo.com.
