Pibbles Paws Safe Haven is planning its biggest event of the year — the Pit-A-Ful Valentine’s Day dance. The event will be held Feb. 10 at Klecknersville Rangers Volunteer Fire Company, 2718 Mountain View Drive, Moore Township. This will be the second year for the event.

The rescue has planned a full day of fun and events for the community to help raise awareness and funds for the homeless dogs it takes in from local shelters, police departments and owner surrenders.

There will be a tricky tray 11 a.m.-6 p.m., which is open to the public and for families. Tickets are required for the adult-only dinner and dance following. Dinner begins 6 p.m. and features a “Lady and the Tramp”-inspired meal of spaghetti and meatballs with rolls, a salad bar and a dessert bar. There will also be drink tickets sold for unlimited drinks including beer, wine, iced tea, water and soda.

The dancing portion of the night begins 7 p.m. and runs until 11 p.m. There will be a professional photographer from LS Photography to take pictures of the event.

Tickets may be purchased in advance but will also be available at the door, based on availability.

Cost of a ticket includes dinner, dancing and a door-prize ticket. Drink tickets are available at an additional cost. Tickets can be purchased by calling 484-735-1431 or via Pay Pal by sending payment as “Friends & Family,” so no fees are deducted to PibblesPaws@aol.com. Please include the number of singles or couples tickets and if drink tickets are being purchased.

According to Stacey Kellner, vice president of Pibbles Paws Safe Haven, the rescue’s goal is to place homeless dogs with families.

“I started the rescue in hopes that we could keep as many homeless dogs as possible from dying alone in a shelter,” Kellner said.

Pibbles Paws hosts a meet-and-greet event every second and fourth Saturday of the month at Phillips Pet Supply Outlet, 7642 Bath Pike, Bath. Kellner said the rescue is always in need of foster homes and volunteers.

While the group’s website is being rebuilt, the public can stay updated on Pibbles Paws news by visiting Facebook at facebook.com/PPSHDogRescue/.

The nonprofit rescue kennel is located at 545 Creek Road, Bath.
