GREAT BAY – The St. Maarten Animal Rescue Team (Smart) organizes a fundraiser at Buccaneer Beach Bar on Kim Sha Beach this Saturday, starting at five in the afternoon. Buccaneer will donate proceeds from hot dog and Greyhound drink sales

Smart urged animal lovers in a press release issued yesterday to bring their dogs to the party and to let them enjoy homemade dog biscuits while mingling with other canines. “If you think your dog is obedient, enter him in the Best Sit and Stay contest. If your dog has a special trick we have a contest for that too,” “Smart stated.

Businesses in the area have donated items for a raffle and a silent auction. There will be bids on hotel stays, spa treatments, restaurant gift certificates, and more. Painter Roland Richardson donated one of his creations to the cause.

All proceeds from the fundraiser go to Smart to fulfill its mission. The organization said in a press release that it is “the only Dutch-side no kill organization that focuses on strays. Smart sterilizes, provides medical care, finds homes and provides food to volunteers who feed strays in St. Maarten. Smart believes that sterilization is key to stopping an abundance of unwanted homeless animals.”
