As I mentioned in an earlier post, fundraising season’s returned, and the next couple of weeks are busy ones as three NJ animal charities launch or present much-anticipated annual events that repay your generosity with a good time or a unique work of art.

First up is Sylvia, a Canine Comedy, which will be staged at the George Street Playhouse on April 17 at 2 p.m. Sylvia attempts to answer the question: What is your dog really thinking? by following the adventures of recent empty-nesters Kate and Greg and the street-smart mutt (the titular Sylvia) who becomes a major bone of contention between them. Rachel Dratch, SNL alumna, will play Sylvia. Tickets are $40 each and $10 from each sale will be donated to All Star Pet Rescue. TO purchase tickets, visit and use the coupon code ALLSTAR or call Michelle at 732.846,2895 x. 134 and mention this code.

Fellow shelter Jersey Shore Animal Center will be hosting the first annual Beach to Bay 5K on Saturday, April 24. The run will begin and end at Brick Beach 3 on Route 35 North in Brick. Registration is $25 per runner and the race begins at 8:30 a.m. Prizes will be awarded to the top three runners in each category. Registration forms can be picked up at the shelter at 185 Brick Blvd., Brick. For more information, call Pat W. or Jaime at 732.920.1600.

And finally, ReRun, an organization that rescues, retrains, and finds homes for thoroughbred racehorses, is launching its annual Moneigh auction April 25. Thirty paintings created by famous equine artists (yes, that’s right—the horses actually create the paintings!) will be auctioned off through May 2. To view the paintings or make a purchase, visit ReRun’s e-bay store at Own a truly original abstract piece of art, and support ReRun’s efforts to give these beautiful, talented animals a better life.
