October 5, 2018

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 5, 2018--At Water and Power Community Credit Union’s annual Member Appreciation Day on Thursday, October 18, 2018, they will join forces with Delaney’s Dog Rescue and Adoption to find dogs forever homes. Free lunch and dessert, hosted by WPCCU, will be provided by The Habit Burger and Dreamy Creations trucks to new parents who adopt a rescue animal and all WPCCU Members. Food will be on a first-come-first-serve basis. The event will take place from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at its main office at 1053 West Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90012, and will include music, raffles, great food and free giveaways.

“The credit union has held a year-long campaign, giving away plush toy dogs to members when they funded a car loan with us,” says Celeste Zibelli, Vice President of Marketing and Financial Services, “it’s time now to help by getting involved with saving the lives of ‘real’ dogs. Last year, I lost my rescue Shih Tzu mix, Phoebe. I hope to find my next rescue dog on the 18 th as well.”

There will be plenty of free parking at this venue. WPCCU and Delaney’s Dog look forward to placing some great dogs into their forever homes.

About Delaney’s Dog

A non-profit, 501(c) (3), 100% volunteer run, all breed dog rescue organization serving the Los Angeles and surrounding SoCal communities. They are dedicated to the rescuing and re-homing of dogs in danger whether it be from the city and county shelters or from out on the streets.

They rescue, rehabilitate, care give and thoroughly screen adoption applicants for the proper placement of rescued dogs into their “right” forever home. And strongly believe there is a right person for every dog and a right dog for every person.

Animals in their care are spayed or neutered, micro-chipped and receive all appropriate veterinary care and treatment. All rescued animals are placed in nurturing, loving and screened foster homes while they await placement into their permanent homes. They assist dogs in danger without regard to age, breed or ease of placement. Their requirement for rescue is need, not breed. And requirement for placement is the “right” home NOT just any home.
