Raise a glass to helping pooches

Bark if you’re over 21. Dogs and their well-behaved owners are invited to a fund-raising event for Everett Animal Rescue (ARF) and Scrub-A-Mutt from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday at The Irishmen in Everett.

There’s no cover charge for Poochfest, but there is a covered seating area in the alley at the Irish pub, 2923 Colby Ave., so that dogs on leashes and their human mates over 21 can enjoy this fund-raiser together.

The Irishmen has a full kitchen and there will be a selection of brews along with raffles, T-shirts and other paraphernalia.

ARF supports the Everett Animal Shelter, and besides Scrub-A-Mutt’s annual dogwash fund-raiser, the group is also involved in animal rescue efforts.

For more information, contact Amy Ferguson at 425-257-6273, or Jennifer Ward at 360-659-9626, or go to www.scrub-a-mutt.org.
