A Winnipeg dog rescue is hoping to draw some support to help with medical treatments for its furry friends.

Organizers at the non-profit Boston Terrier & Pug Rescue of Southern Manitoba are currently selling 50/50 tickets to help the dogs they rescue, and all funds raised from the draw will go towards vet bills and medications.

Tickets cost $2 each and are available at Southglen Veterinary Hospital, located at V-730 St. Anne’s Rd., or individuals can visit www.bostonpugrescuemb.com for other ticket seller locations. A total of 2,500 tickets have been printed.

The draw will take place at the hospital on Sun., Aug. 25 at 3 p.m., which will follow the sale of various other items including cookbooks and car magnets.

The event will begin at 11 a.m. and the showcase will be a number of adoptable dogs that will be available for a meet-and-greet, organizers say.
