AHeinz57 Pet Rescue and Transport in De Soto will be holding its annual “Putts Fore Mutts” charitable golf outing on Saturday, May 17, at Terrace Hills Golf Course in Altoona, located by Prairie Meadows.
Participants will enjoy 18 holes of golf with cart and green fees included and lunch provided. They also will be able to meet and greet adoptable dogs, and participate in hole contests, raffle drawings, and a silent auction.
Proceeds from the outing will benefit homeless, injured, and abused dogs throughout the state of Iowa. The funds will also help AHeinz57 continue to transport death row dogs scheduled for euthanasia from traditional shelters to no-kill shelters across the Midwest.
“Every dollar raised goes toward saving lives and increasing awareness,” Amy Heinz, president and founder, said. “This day allows for golfers and members of the community to give back to those without a voice and have a great time doing it.”
Event chair Mark Gilchrist added, “This is our first annual, and we hope to bring together members of the community for a fun-filled day of celebration, awareness, and fundraising.”
