Tuesday, Feb. 26: Dine Out for Homeless Pets

Do you like 12 Bones, Tupelo Honey, Usual Suspects, Old Europe, Doc Chey's, Sunnyside Cafe, Jack of the Wood, Urban Burrito or Zambra?

These are just a few of the WNC bars and eateries donating part of Tuesday's proceeds to Dine to Be Kind, a fundraiser that lets WNC people pig out to help homeless pets.

Over 50 restaurants in Asheville, Weaverville and Black Mountain invite customers to support spay/neuter programs in WNC through dining out at a participating restaurant during Dine to Be Kind. A percentage of Tuesday's profits goes to the spay/neuter programs of the Animal Compassion Network, WNC's largest no-kill rescue organization.

Takeout counts too during Dine to Be Kind, as does breakfast and lunch at certain spots.

Here's the list of participating restaurants.

Skippy, I wish I knew. I can say that some venues will have representatives from ACN who can accept donations.

I've heard the donation percentage is 10%, and alcohol is excluded (so be sure to run up the tab with food and not drinks).
