All Dog Rescuers Go to Heaven – Muttsquerade Ball 2010

By: Jessa (Goodworth) Hochman

For the past year and a half – Rock The House has starting implementing an initiative called, “Rock The House Gives Back.” We know that in Cleveland and around the world, one of the best ways to raise funds is to host extraordinary events. When we received a call from Dogs Unlimited Rescue Organization, we had to jump on board.


On Sunday, September 19th 2010, Dogs Unlimited Rescue hosted its 1st annual Muttsquerade Ball at Moxie, The Restaurant. The MC for the night was Cleveland’s own, Stefani Schaefer, Anchor and Host of Fox 8 News in the Morning. Michael Stanley and Jennifer Lee filled the event with entertainment and music.

The event featured an outstanding raffle selection – three trips from Naples, to Traverse City to Key West were given away! On top of these prizes, guests were also invited to bid on silent auction items. According to event chair – Gina Lutes – The event ended up raising approximately $40,000! To know how these funds will be used, read the organization’s mission statement below:

Dogs Unlimited Rescue, Inc. is an all volunteer non-profit organization that is dedicated to educating the public and saving abused and neglected animals from an uncertain fate. Our organization rescues animals from high kill shelters, abuse or neglect cases, owner surrenders, and the breeding parents in puppy mills that would otherwise be inhumanely disposed of. We improve their lives by providing quality care and placement into permanent loving homes. We will continue to educate, rescue, and rehabilitate and encourage the adoption of pets from shelters and rescue groups.

Lead MC for the night, Tim Frankish, says:

Amazing food, amazing drinks and amazing company. Over 200 supporters come out to the 2nd annual Muttsquerade event held at Moxie. Special musical guest Michael Stanley performed as people enjoyed several food and drink stations. Stefani Schaefer was the special guest host and also serves as a member of the Dogs Unlimited Rescue Organization,. Lot’s of auction items and donations were given to help dogs that need either medical attention, homes or just every day supplies.
