(CNS Local Life): Dog-rescue charity One Dog at a Time (ODAAT) held a boat trip fundraiser last weekend to help support its efforts. Held Sunday, 21 October, 50 passengers and crew sailed on a luxury catamaran out to Stingray City, then the Coral Gardens, enjoying the snorkelling as well as the food served on deck.

The cruise ended with a stop at Starfish Point, before passengers watched the sunset on the trip back, stated ODAAT in a press release.

The event raised $1,400, all of which will be used to help with rescues, medical bills and day-to-day care of the dogs, ODAAT said.

Lorene Ryan Stewart, who was one of the passengers on the cruise, said of the event: “It was a great, family day out and I would thoroughly recommend it. It’s one of my favourite One Dog trips. It needs to be held four times a year.”

ODAAT rescues dogs from the pound as well as helps abandoned and stray canines, pays for all vaccinations, spays or neuters dogs, and places them in foster homes until the right permanent home can be found.

The charity is now in the process of taking 15 rescue dogs up to New York to their forever homes.
