Buddy Care Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides financial assistance to dog owners that can’t afford critical medical care for canine companions in need, invites dog lovers everywhere to celebrate the magic of Christmas through a pair of unique holiday fundraisers.
On Sunday, December 16 at 5:00 p.m. CST, Nashville-based country artist Brittany Spriggs will perform a live Christmas-themed web concert on Stageit.com.

This exciting event displays lavishly decorated Christmas trees, each tied to a local charity. The Buddy Care tree is up for auction through 8:00 p.m. CST on Christmas Eve.
