‘Mardi Paws’ at Del Mar Powerhouse

Dexter’s Deli and Spunky held a “Mardi Paws” canine costume contest and  “Barkus” Parade on “Fat Sunday,” Feb. 23, at the Del Mar Powerhouse Community Center.

Spunky is an aptly named terrier mix who became the unofficial mascot for Del Mar Community Connections after he was rescued in 2010 by DMCC’s program director, Heather Glenn.  Spunky helps advertise DMCC’s Lost Pet Alert Program on Del Mar’s community cable TV channel, which helps get the word out quickly whenever one of Del Mar’s four-legged (or two-winged) friends goes wandering.

Last summer Spunky suffered a herniated disc and his human companion had to face the unthinkable:  putting young Spunky down because cost of the surgery was prohibitive.  That’s when The FACE Foundation for Pets entered the picture and offered a grant to cover the majority of Spunky’s tab.  Now that Spunky has fully recovered from the surgery, he partnered with Dexter’s Deli to hold a fundraiser for FACE as his way to “pay it forward.”
