What is Bowl-4-Animal Rescue

Bowl-4-Animal Rescue (B4AR) is a 3-month pledge-drive that culminates in a huge bowling/auction/raffle event to support homeless animals in need in our community. The perennially sold-out B4AR attracts nearly 300 animal lovers of all ages—from children to seniors. While we do attract professional bowlers, homeless animals don’t care if you’re a good bowler, a bad bowler, or no bowler at all—they’re just “bowled over” by your generosity! Plus, you do don’t even have to bowl to participate in the pledge drive and make a real difference.
