What is Bowl-4-Animal Rescue

Bowl-4-Animal Rescue (B4AR) is a 3-month pledge-drive that culminates in a huge bowling/auction/raffle event to support homeless animals in need in our community. The perennially sold-out B4AR attracts nearly 300 animal lovers of all ages—from children to seniors. While we do attract professional bowlers, homeless animals don’t care if you’re a good bowler, a bad bowler, or no bowler at all—they’re just “bowled over” by your generosity! Plus, you do don’t even have to bowl to participate in the pledge drive and make a real difference.

When: August 11, 2018 7:00pm-10:30pm
Where: Country Lanes – 30250 W. 9 Mile Rd, Farmington Hills, MI 48336

Why do we host B4AR?

We host this event because WE ARE PASSIONATE about helping animals in need and strive to be a VOICE for them. The homeless animal problem in Michigan continues to be an epidemic; we want to continue to do everything we can to alleviate the problem to help the many animals who need us.

We think about them everyday and want to RAISE MONEY AND AWARENESS to help them. We want to spread the word to ADOPT, not shop, as there are so many souls already out there who need to be rescued, even in PUREBRED shelters.

Rescued is our favorite breed

YOU CAN HELP! With our wonderful community of friends, TOGETHER WE CAN DO SO MUCH MORE and that is what this is all about.Homeless animals don’t care if you are a good bowler, a bad bowler, or no bowler at all!

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE in the lives of homeless animals.
