RAIN - Rescuing Animals In Need
RAIN is a non-profit, all-volunteer, 501c3 organization. Their number one goal is rescuing cats and dogs in need. All rescued animals are tested, spayed & neutered and once they have received all their required vaccines they are eligible for adoption, for a fee. You can meet some of RAIN’s volunteers in the concourse area and they can provide you with additional information about their organization and their adoptable animals that need homes. They will also have some of their adoptable animals on site!
SPAN - Senior’s Pet Assistance Network
The Seniors' Pets Assistance Network (SPAN) serves the needs of seniors and their pets in the Dallas area. SPAN is an all-volunteer organization focused on the well-being of our elderly and their furry companions. SPAN will be auctioning off several autographed jerseys from MLS stars Brek Shea, Dax McCarty, as well as former Lions Lewis Neal, Yordany Alvarez, and Lawrence Olum.
SPAN is a project of Jamie Watson’s mother, and is very important to Jamie as well.
“I would like to ask a personal favor from the City supporters on Sunday,” said Watson. “Stop by and visit and please donate whatever you can to the SPAN and RAIN charities benefitting a lot of senior citizens and animals that need our help! This means a lot to me because my mother is heavily involved in this program and it’s amazing to see our City family positively affecting so many other families, mine included. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Let’s spread the word this week to make Sunday a huge success!”
