Rock For Rescues, a street festival that combines the love of music and love of animals, will take place the afternoon of April 28th on Broadwell Road in Milton, Georgia. With food and beverage concessions on site, attendees will be entertained by local bands A Slow Boat to China (pictured), Pony League, the Chip McGuire Band and Linnie & Amy Joy. Running from noon ‘til 6 p.m., the event is free but tax-deductible donations to non-profit animal rescue organizations including Furkids Animal Rescue and Shelters, Pets for Vets, Canine CellMates, Pilots N Paws and Special Equestrians of Georgia will be accepted and encouraged.
Rock to the Rescue, a pet rescue awareness organization founded in 2001 by Tommy Shaw (Styx) and Kevin Cronin (REO Speedwagon), is a presenting sponsor of the Rock for Rescue event, as is local quarterly Atlanta Pet Life magazine. Coinciding with RFR, Shaw is featured on the cover of the spring issue of Atlanta Pet Life along with his dog Peanut, with a feature story on the history of Rock to the Rescue inside.
