BENEFITING: Tony La Russa's Animal Rescue Foundation
I love animals! Don't you? There are so many animals that need our help to find a good, loving home. Help me raise money for the Animal Rescue Foundation!!
A Little History of ARF:
It all started when a stray cat wandered onto the baseball field at an Oakland A's/NY Yankees game (La Russa was then the manager of the A's). He brought the cat into the dugout to safety for the rest of the game. He then took it the a local shelter, learning that it would be euthanized, as there weren't any no-kill shelters in the SF east bay. He and his wife, Elaine, named the cat Evie, and found it a good home. ARF eventually became the first no kill shelter the East Bay. --Credit: arf.net
