2 months and 6 days left
until the event.
We are now in the pre-planning stages for
Dance for the Rescues 6.

Please share your thoughts and suggestions on how we can impove your experience, your fun, and how we can improve on raising awareness to support animals in need.  Please send us an e-mail using the contact information on this website. Thank you.
Stay tuned!

The balance of the website still reflects DFR5.  We will be updating the site as we go.

Do you have any photos or short video clips from the Dance for the Rescues Event that you would like to share?  If so, please share with all of us by uploading them to our Videos, Posters and Photos tab.

By the way, donations and pledges can still be made through the website that we will pass through to our local non-profits. Links to animal adoption pages are still valid, and any one of our non-profit groups, sponsors, vendors and others may still be contacted.

Thank you again for your interest in Dance for the Rescues.



Dance for the Rescues: A Zumba® Event for the Animals is a benefit for non-profit animal rescue organizations. Our primary beneficiaries are Animal Friends Rescue Project (AFRP) and Peace of Mind Dog Rescue (POMDR). This event will also feature and support other animal rescue groups committed to making a difference to animals in need.

The 6th Annual Dance for the Rescues event will be held at the Custom House Plaza – Monterey State Historic Park, in Monterey, CA on Sunday October 11, 2015 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

This event will once again showcase Zumba®, a high energy Latin infused dance combining salsa, meringue, cumbia, reggaeton and other dance styles. We will feature DJ Willi spinning the best in world/dance music and Host Kim Fujii. As we get closer you can check out our Guest Instructors! Page!

Rescue and support groups such as AFRP, POMDR, Greyhounds for Life, Operation Freedom Paws, Annie's Blankets, Birchbark Foundation and Pet Friends Rescue will be available to share information about their organizations and to introduce you to some of their adoptable animals. There will be food, arts & crafts, pet related products and fitness/health vendors.

This music/dance event will always be FREE and open to the public.
