August 26, 2009 (FPRC) -- Economic uncertainty doesn't just affect people. In the past few weeks, rescue groups in the Dallas Fort Worth area have rescued over 600 hundred animals. According to published reports, some of those rescues have cost $75,000. In response to the increased inflow of animals and slowing donations that have affected many shelters and rescue groups, Kim Snider has organized Polo for Paws, benefiting Best Friends Animal Sanctuary on October 24, 2009 at the Dallas Polo Club.
Kim Snider, Founder and CEO of Snider Advisors, said, “When we experience economic uncertainty, unfortunately, charitable giving becomes a discretionary expense and is often one of the first cuts a family makes. Polo for Paws is a great way to give to the shelters in need while spending a fun-filled afternoon with family and friends.”
Polo for Paws, a benefit for Best Friends Animal Society, is being held Saturday, October 24, 2009 at the Dallas Polo Club. Gates will open at noon. Polo school will begin at 12:30pm where you can try your hand at riding a horse and swinging a mallet . The feature match will begin at 2:00pm. Half time will include flying frisbee dogs and TC Cappel's Dancing Dogs. Additional activities are scheduled throughout the day.

Best Friends has a simple philosophy: kindness to animals builds a better world for all of us. The sanctuary, in Kanab, Utah, is home to about 2000 dogs, cats, horses, birds and other animals - both wild and domestic - who come from shelters and rescue groups around the country and the world for special care they can only receive at Best Friends. Best Friends acts as a sort of "Red Cross for animals", dispatching teams of volunteers worldwide wherever there is an over-whelming situation. Teams have been sent to help in hoarding situations, closed down puppy mills, natural disasters, and war. Best Friends also fought for the lives of Michael Vick's dogs. The court agreed, sending many of them to Best Friends where some have been rehabilitated and adopted. Others of Vick's dogs, who will not fully recover from the trauma, will have a forever home at Best Friends and have been named The Vicktory Dogs. You may have seen some of them on National Geographc's hit show, "Dogtown."
