Feb. 13, 2014 – PALM DESERT, Calif. – Emerald Desert RV Resort, a Sunland RV Resorts property, and guests shared the love Wednesday, February 12 at the 2014 Puppy Love Happy Hour Fundraiser.

In just one evening the resort-sponsored event helped raise $335 for the Pet Rescue Center of Coachella, Calif. The Pet Rescue Center is a non-profit, no-kill facility that has “[cared] for abandoned or lost animals” since 1998.

“Emerald Desert, like all of Sunland’s properties, is an incredibly pet-friendly resort. In addition to taking care of our guests’ pets, it is also very important to us to help local animals in need,” remarked Lesley Marr, General Manager of Emerald Desert RV Resort. “Thanks to the generosity of our guests, we were able to raise over $300 and contribute to a great local organization.”

Emerald Desert RV Resort holds regular pet-friendly events including the very popular 4th Annual Emerald Desert Pet Parade on March 7. The 255-site RV resort houses a fenced dog run for dogs to enjoy.

Pets are also welcome at all seven of Emerald Desert’s sister properties, including Escondido RV Resort in North San Diego County. Escondido RV features Sunland’s largest park at one-third of an acre. The fenced dog park also features a fire hydrant water fixture, training toys and shade trees for owners to enjoy.
