‘PUP Olympics & Pool PAWty’


Rescue Express, a 501c(3) nonprofit, presented its 1st annual PUP Olympics & Pool PAWty Aug. 18 at a Rancho Santa Fe residence. All proceeds will go toward its mission of providing more “freedom rides” to homeless animals from high-kill shelters to their forever homes. Rescue Express has already saved over 17,000 dogs and cats from euthanasia.

The event, which featured comedian Dewey Bratcher as emcee, also included a “Pup Olympics” and awards ceremony, a customized pool for pups, food, beverages, pet vendors, a raffle and silent auction, and more. Visit
