Thank you, Rincon!

We would like to give a big shoutout to our animal-loving friends at Rincon Brewery in Ventura for helping us raise money as part of the #BettyWhiteChallenge! Rincon hosted a fundraiser event from January 14th through 17th in which attendees were encouraged to purchase a $7 beer to honor the beloved actress. All proceeds from their Ventura location were then donated to the HSVC. Thank you, Rincon, for being a friend to animals in need and making Betty White proud!
