Dog Tales Launch Party
The launch party for Dog Tales Rescue and Sanctuary — a brand new dog rescue and horse shelter in King City — may have been the most star-studded animal affair the Greater Toronto Area has ever seen. On Oct. 19, 2014, the 50-acre farm opened up its doors to over 500 guests, including media members, celebrities, friends, family and other supporters, to celebrate the official opening of the shelter. Founded by Robert Scheinberg and his wife, actor Danielle Eden, Dog Tales gives previously abused or neglected dogs a place where they can learn to be dogs again. Incredible décor and passionate care from seasoned animal lovers and caretakers have made the shelter a unique one, and the launch party was no less extravagant. Designed by Caspar Haydar Design, the affair boasted entertainment by Grammy nominee Jewel and the Juno Award-winning Sam Roberts Band while attendees savoured oysters, champagne and paw-shaped sugar cookies. The guest list included tons of A-list names and personalities, from ET Canada’s Cheryl Hickey and The Social’s Melissa Grelo. Dog Tales Rescue is set to be open for public adoption in early 2015.
