'Pancake Barkfeast' set for Jan. 27

• Jan 8, 2018 at 4:00 PM

CLEVELAND — The ninth annual “Pancake Barkfeast” fundraiser to support Secondhand Mutts has a new venue and new celebrity chefs to provide specialty omelettes.

The event will be held from 9 a.m. to noon, Jan. 27 in the Rade Dining Hall on the main campus of St. Ignatius High School. Hundreds of local guests will enjoy a traditional pancake breakfast served with all the fixin’s. Vegetarian and vegan options available as well, event is family friendly and funds raised help support dogs in need.

The Pancake Barkfeast began as a way to help fund the large cost of treating heartworm-positive dogs. Over the years, the event has grown and developed to support the Extra Mile Program, which helps Secondhand Mutts save and treat dogs in need even if they have medical conditions requiring extended care or treatment.

Five years ago, the group started to host local celebrity chefs from many great restaurants and organizations around Northeast Ohio. The guest chefs create an omelette and donate their time and talents, making the omelettes fresh for the guests (who choose one omelette to try) live during the event. This creates excitement around the cool creations.

The 2018 celebrity chef line up (subject to change) include Eowyn Adams from Sodexo, David Bumba from Yuzu, Robert Geul from Jammy Buggars, Matt Harlan from B Spot, Ricardo Sandoval from Fat Cats and Lava Lounge, and Susan Walters from CHA Spirits and PIzza Kitchen.


The Pancake Barkfeast also has some raffle baskets. Secondhand Mutt merchandise is available for purchase as well.

Secondhand Mutts is a local dog rescue based in Tremont that helps save hundreds of dogs in need each year.

Secondhand Mutts prides itself on providing dog socialization and also provides all medical treatment and preventive services to our dogs as part of their adoption. All Secondhand Mutts are current on vaccines, de-wormed, microchipped, spayed or neutered and current on monthly heartworm and flea prevention.

Secondhand Mutts helps dogs who do not have a choice in being homeless and helps them find loving forever homes.
