Just as Amalfi Estate agents find the right home for people in this community, they also want to find the best homes for rescue canines. Agents are sponsoring a Park Pawty from noon to 3 p.m. this Saturday, May 14, at Veterans Gardens at the Palisades Recreation Center.

Amalfi agents donate ten percent of each commission to one of six partner charities: The People Concern, American Cancer Society, Wags & Walks, Homeboy, Make-a-Wish and Heal the Bay. Not only do Amalfi agents donate money, but they also donate their time, too.

Wags & Walks, and friends, will be featured at the Rec Center, 851 Alma Real Drive. Families are invited to enjoy the food from the In-n-Out truck, face painting, bocce and to meet puppies looking for homes. An RSVP is preferred to make sure there are enough supplies/food: click here.

Local well-behaved pooches, on leashes, are also invited to come out with the owners and enjoy the afternoon. Anyone can play bocce – no sign up will be required. There are plans for volunteers to help people for those who do not know how to play.

In November, the Almalfi team helped sponsor a fundraiser for Wags & Walks, a canine rescue. It was founded in 2011 by Brog, the daughter of a veterinarian, who was devastated by the number of sweet and healthy dogs being euthanized due to overcrowding in LA shelters.

When Brog started the organization, her main goal was to break the stigma that rescue dogs are damaged goods. She wanted to help decrease the number of dogs euthanized in local shelters by showing the community that you can find wonderful dogs of all breeds and sizes through rescue. Visit: wagsandwalks.org.

“We are just fortunate to have the opportunity to be able to give back,” said Amalfi Estates founder Anthony Marguleas, noting that last year’s team of nine agents, through 181 families, donated close to $500,000 from their commissions. (visit: amalfiestates.com.)
