Stella is a happy 45 pound Boxer pup with a sudsy tale. Years ago, her future people, a pair of beer-drinking ex-New Yorkers met and fell in love due, in part, to their mutual love of beer, especially Stella Artois. After the pair moved to Austin and settled in, they decided that a beautiful, bouncing fur-baby was just what they needed to round out their family. Austin Boxer Rescue was close at hand to help pair them with the lovely puppy Stella, aptly named in honor of the beer that brought them together. Since then, the family has fostered several more boxers, who have all found happy homes throughout Austin.
Pints for Pups raises awareness and funds for dog rescues including Stella’s alma mater Austin Boxer Rescue to unite more Austin beer lovers with lonely four-legged furballs through the support of local craft breweries and community members within the beer industry. As of 2014, Pints for Pups has raised over $20,000 in financial support and advocacy of animal rescues. At their most recent event at Independence Brewing Co., Pints for Pups raised nearly $5,000 in two short hours. This weekend, they will be hosting another event that can bring you face to face with your newest best friend and raise funds to keep pups happy and healthy while they continue their search for their forever home.
Lakeside Pizza and Grill is hosting the event in Steiner Ranch on July 12th from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM. Donations and funds will benefit Wags, Hope and Healing, Austin Boxer Rescue, Love-A-Bull, and Austin Pets Alive!. At the dog-friendly (leashed) event, there will be live music, craft beer, and adoptable dogs onsite. Past events have even featured doggy cake walks and puppy kissing booths. A $10 donation get you an event glass and 1-pour of select beers. Lakeside Pizza and Grill will also be donating a portion of the day’s proceeds to benefit the rescues.
