espite pouring rain all day Saturday, February 28, organizers of Gulfport’s 11th annual Get Rescued dubbed the event a great success. Get Rescued brought together several dozen small pet-rescue groups, Gulfport merchants and members of the public to raise money and supplies for domestic animals in need of new homes.
“They did very well,” said Lynda Shehan, one of the main organizers. “The event was beautiful, just as it always is.”
