This Saturday 2910 on the Square and Wings of Love, Kuwait are combining my favorite things! Puppies and shopping. 2910 on the Square, my go-to shop for all gifts and art Baltimore, is hosting a meet and greet with fosters and adoptable dogs from 11 a.m.- 2 p.m. You will be able to learn all about Wings of Love and their mission, meet some adorable dogs and perhaps do a little shopping.
Established in 1999, 2910 on the Square is a unique and exciting store, with two floors of wonderful gift ideas, many one-of-a-kind, handmade crafts and art objects. Baby gifts, clothing, jewelry and gifts for adults with a sense of style and humor. They have gifts that are frivolous and fun, and even more serious stuff, something for everyone and for every room of your home; gifts for all occasions.
2910 on the Square loves dogs. In fact, Winston along with his human companion (Stephanie), stock plenty of dog accessories and gifts.
Wings of Love, Kuwait is a volunteer-run dog rescue organization that was founded in 2015, and is based in Baltimore, Maryland. Their mission is to help find loving foster and adoptive homes in the United States for dogs that have been abandoned and abused in Kuwait, and that have little hope for survival. A group of dedicated women independently rescue dogs in Kuwait and try to find safe, temporary shelters for them. Some dogs are found tied to trees in sweltering desert temperatures with no food or water. Others are rescued after being left to be sold at the market after the novelty of owning a designer dog has worn off. One dog was found trapped in a tiny birdcage.
Collaborating closely with the team in Kuwait, Wings of Love work to find foster and adoptive homes for the dogs. The dogs are flown to the United States either in cargo, which can be very costly, or they travel with Patricia and other volunteers on board the plane. Before making their journey to the U.S., each dog receives its necessary vaccinations and is microchipped. To date, Wings of Love, Kuwait have facilitated adoptions of more than 290 dogs!
