Foster Army Animal Rescue to Throw Birthday Pawty, February 16, for Special 3-Legged Dog Whose Wish Is a Forever Home

Public Invited to Meet Daisy at Free Event, Noon to 2 P.M., at Foster Army Animal Rescue Thrift Store and Adoption Center, Riverside

RIVERSIDE, CA, February 11, 2019 – Foster Army Animal Rescue (FAAR) is throwing a birthday pawty for Daisy, a special three-legged American Staffordshire Terrier mixrescued two years ago by FAAR, and invites the public to help her celebrate as she turns four-years old.  The free party, with cake, refreshments and party games, is Saturday, February 16, from noon to 2 p.m. on the back patio of Foster Army Animal Rescue Thrift Store and Adoption Center, 3711 Central Ave., Riverside.  

The party is for humans only.  Please leave dogs or other pets at home.

Daisy’s number one birthday wish is to have a forever home and loving family.  She was only weeks old when she was turned into Riverside County Dept. of Animals Services – Jurupa Valley shelter with a front leg so badly damaged it had to be amputated.  

However, this has not stopped Daisy from being a dog.  She enjoys the same activities other dogs do.  Since she does get tired on long walks which also could strain her shoulder and spine, she comes equipped with her very own custom wheelchair.

If party guests would like to donate to FAAR to help care for her fellow rescued dogs, cats, bunnies and other small animals, Daisy suggests the following: glucosamine, calming treats, OdoBan disinfectant, bleach, paper towels, hand sanitizer, Calm-a-Mile NEAT essential oil, and animalEO essential oils, as well as monetary donations for veterinary care.

Foster Army Animal Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation that rescues from animal control facilities treatable companion animals at risk of euthanasia. In the three years since its inception, FAAR has saved 560 pets.  These animals include the ill and injured, kittens and puppies under eight weeks of age, seniors, and others often overlooked by adopters.  They are placed in foster homes and provided with all medical and behavioral care they need and are vaccinated, microchipped, and spayed/neutered before being available for adoption.  For more information, visit or call 951-222-2104.
