Furry Friends To Host Ranch Round Up Fundraising Event In Palm City

Saddle up for a rootin’-tootin’ day of family fun and furry friends. 

Furry Friends Adoption, Clinic & Ranch, the Humane Society of Jupiter/Tequesta, will be hosting the “Ranch Round Up” event on June 9, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Furry Friends Ranch in Palm City. 

Admission is free and the event gives guests a chance to learn about the not-for-profit’s mission to shelter and save animals. 

Food vendors will serve up country-style barbecue and refreshing drinks, including beer, wine and country punch, at the “watering hole.” 

Well-behaved dogs on leashes accompanied by two-legged family members are permitted, and there will be adoptable cats and dogs at the event.

The live music lineup features The Andrew Morris Band and the Tom Jackson Band. Family friendly activities will take place throughout the day, including hay rides, a petting zoo, line dancing and a "Dog-Fun Zone.” 

At 12:30 p.m., Daisy, an American shelter mix, and Oskar, an English bulldog will take ‘bows’ in a royal (doggie) wedding. 

Pat Deshong, president and CEO, planned the event to shed light on the organization and its mission. The 27-acre ranch is the first stop for the animals that come into its care and where they are welcomed, examined and receive medical treatment. 

For the past 30 years, Furry Friends has cared, sheltered and found homes for the animals it rescues and houses.
