Rock Wall Wine in Alameda have placed their Rock Hound Red and Rock Hound White on sale for a good cause.
The Rock Hound blends are the continuation of a lifelong mission by the Rosenblum family to help animals in need. A portion of the proceeds from each bottle sold is donated to the Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter (FAAS). The Rock Hound blends are dedicated to Shauna Rosenblum’s rescue dog, Sunny (the dog in the picture and on the label). When she adopted him ten years ago he had been abused and was severely malnourished, in addition to being nearly blind. Today he is the one of the sweetest most loving dogs you will ever meet. He enjoys being adored, sunbathing, snorting like a pig and snoring louder than a grown person! If he is feeling particularly saucy he will let out his signature “Warooooo!”
FAAS is a non-profit 501(c)(3) that provides shelter and care to more than 80 dogs, cats, rabbits and other small animals. FAAS is the only non-profit that dedicates 100% of funding to caring for Alameda’s animals. They accept those that are stray and abandoned, as well as owner surrendered animals. The mission of this awesome organization is to shelter and care for abandoned companion animals, find them new homes, and prevent animal cruelty through education and community programs. For more information about FAAS please visit: www.alamedaanimalshelter.org.
