Special-needs dogs will be the beneficiary of LoveyLoaves Rescue's Ties and Tails event, which will be held from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 11, at Rosen Shingle Creek, 9939 Universal Blvd., Orlando.

Tickets can be found here. 

LoveyLoaves Rescue is a small breed special-needs dog rescue devoted to saving and rehabilitating dogs that have been dealt different circumstances in life, according to its website. The nonprofit helps to find safety for dogs, including those who are amputees, blind, deaf, medically complex, carted dogs, those suffering from disease, illness, injury or disorder, and more. 

Cheri Wells, owner of LoveyLoaves, said she and her husband, Ward, began the organization after their own dog required a rear leg amputation. 

"After our experience, we realized the first dogs to be surrendered or euthanized were those with medical issues, deformities and disabilities," Cheri Wells said. "These are the outcasts, the dogs that people write off before they are even seen."

Ties and Tails is set to be the largest annual fundraiser that the nonprofit has organized. The event will include a formal night of dinner catered by Rosen Shingle Creek, with dancing, a live deejay, raffles, magic, a silent art auction and more. 

All proceeds raised at the event will benefit LoveyLoves and its dogs. 

Jodi Hamilton, who has fostered dogs from the organization, said LoveyLoaves is a perfect fit for her and her wife. 

"My wife and I have dedicated our lives to provide as much love and support to dogs as we can," Hamilton said. "We want nothing more than to provide a good quality life full of love and happiness for these pups. They deserve that and so much more.”

"These dogs have no voice and it is our job to ensure they are cared for for the rest of their lives," Cheri Wells said. 

Those who wish to get involved beyond the benefit can help raise awareness by fostering, donating and connecting with the organization on social media.
