'Rock & Rawhide' helping animals get adopted from shelters

July 21, 2013 9:26:46 AM PDT
It turns out the more a dog wags its tail in a shelter, the better chance it has of getting adopted.

Sean-Patrick and Kylie Hillman, co-founders of Rock & Rawhide, want to see that happen more often.

Rock & Rawhide is an organization that helps lift the spirits of sad dogs and cats stuck in area shelters.

And they're getting ready to mark a major milestone with a big party.

The 'Celebrate, Wag A Tail' black, white and red fundraising gala, sponsored by Petco, is Tuesday night at 7.

It's being held at the iHeart Radio Theater in Manhattan.

Here is the information:
