Jackie, Representative of Angels Among Us Pet Rescue said, “We are so grateful for events like this, where we’re able to promote our amazing adoptable dogs and raise money to save other pets from neglect, abuse, and high-kill shelters. The Funds raised from Bump, Set, Spiked will go directly to saving the lives of dogs and cats in need.” According to Marketing Director of Live! at The Battery Ben Brengle, “This is this first of many events to come not only on the Battery Plaza, but inside the Live! district itself.
