Brittany Rescue in Texas (BRIT) will host its fourth annual Great BRIT Pumpkin Patch this Saturday at the ACE Pet Resort.

The event takes place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and admission is free.

“It’s basically a fundraiser to go toward the care of the rescue animals [BRIT],” BRIT fundraising and event coordinator Lauren Pinto said.

BRIT is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing help to Brittanys dogs in need.

“Our primary purpose is to identify and rescue stray, abandoned, surrendered, or impounded Brittanys, and provide for their medical, physical, and emotional needs moving towards an end result of appropriate permanent placement,” the BRIT website said. “The secondary purpose of the organization to provide breed education and support in any way possible to help Brittanys in all types of placement so they can be cared for most effectively.”

According to Pinto, the goal of the event is to raise more than $4,000 to go toward supporting Brittanys.

“All the profits go to vet care, transportation [and] getting [Brittanys] in the right homes,” Pinto said. “[The BRIT] is volunteer based so it takes trying to do these fundraisers to get money to come in.”

Attendees are welcome to bring their dogs to the pumpkin patch, and there will be a variety of vendors including a BRIT photography booth, facepainting, holiday and college yard signs, and treats.

“We will have a few baked goods from Marsh Confections: Cookies by Kelly,” Pinto said.

While there will be a lot of Brittanys at the event, Pinto stresses the fundraiser is open to everyone.

“Anybody is welcome with any breed,” Pinto said.
