Rock Out for Rocket Dog

Pali Boucher founded San Francisco's Rocket Dog Rescue in 2001, and over the years, the group has helped about 3,000 dogs find new homes--most of the dogs were "just in time" rescues facing euthanasia.

As is unfortunately so often the case, Rocket Dog isn't a "deep pockets" group; much of the work is done by volunteers and most of their funding goes toward medical care and other expenses for the rescued pooches. So when--just a few days before Christmas--Boucher lost her home (as well as three foster dogs) in a fire, things looked pretty grim.

Image_2 When the news got out that Rocket Dog needed help, its fans stepped up. Join them on Friday, February 1, at Slim's in San Francisco for a benefit featuring Red Meat, Parker Brothers, Marga Gomez, and Johnny Steele, not to mention Josh Klipp, Freeplay Dance Troupe, Caroline Lund and emcee Liam Mayclem. And be sure to stay for the glittering disco finale! 

Tickets are available online, or you can also stop by Slim's box office (Monday through Friday, 10:30 to 6) or tickets.com outlets (1.800.225.2277).
