Doggie Birthday Party Will Benefit Animal Rescue Force

Gemma Koder is holding a birthday party for 10-year-old Napoleon, a Yorkie, on Sunday, March 1 from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. at the corner of Fern and Flagler Drive in West Palm Beach.

Koder is celebrating animals and their companionship with the party for Napoleon. The party will support Animal Rescue Force, a shelter program in West Palm Beach.

During Napoleon’s party, there will be special treats from caterer Chef Keisha, who will be serving steak tidbits, brown rice and veggies, chicken, shrimp and triscotti, which are all gluten-free, but if any four-legged friends have allergies, feel free to bring your own snacks.

The intent of Koder’s party is to celebrate Napoleon as well as help support the Animal Rescue Force shelter. In lieu of a gift, she requests that an item, preferably for cats, be donated to the shelter.

Some of the things the shelter needs include canned or dry food that is not opened or expired, litter boxes, trash bags, disinfectants, toys, paper towels, flea treatments, clean old towels and disposable gloves.
