Bark Andre Furry, a 10-year-old Jack Russell Terrier, and fluffiest Vegas Golden Knights Fan, is the newest celebrity member for Win-Win Entertainment. This social media sensation, with his own fashion line of bandanas, hats and t-shirts, debuted his ‘Bark for a Cause’ initiative to volunteer his time, and also donate his miniature Bark stuffed animals, to kids in the Las Vegas community.
In March, Bark completed his coursework and received his certification as a therapy dog, with a goal to inspire physical and emotional healing through animal-assisted interactions, for children. To formalize his new role as a member with Win-Win Entertainment, Bark Andre Furry wagged his way through the corridor to greet the medical team and patients at the The Children’s Medical Center at Summerlin Hospital Medical Center.
“We are excited to welcome Bark Andre Furry into our Win-Win Entertainment family, as it is a perfect partnership with us and his ‘Bark for a Cause’ initiative to help children’s non-profits,” said Jeff Civillico, founder & chairman of Win-Win Entertainment. “It was a special afternoon with Bark at Summerlin Hospital, surprising the children and putting smiles on their faces. That’s what its all about.”
