Darbster Restaurant’s Pet Project

darbster 1

Many Southenders know Darbster for its delicious vegetarian offerings. What they may not know is that this bistro’s business is dedicated to a caring cause.

When Darbster owners, Ellen and Alan, opened their first restaurant in 2009 (named after their 17-year-old poodle who came to them from a puppy mill in the mid-west), they also formed the Darbster Foundation.  The goal was to assist in animal welfare and animal rights efforts through education, charitable contributions and direct sponsoring of animal care such spaying and neutering. 100% of all profits from Darbster Food go to their Darbster Foundation, which has no paid employees and operates entirely through volunteers.

The impact the Foundation has made is huge. In 2014, the Foundation provided funds for 1,135 spay neuter surgeries- 644 of these were performed at Peggy Adams and 491 at Palm Beach Animal Care and Control. Sadly, Palm Beach County still had to put down 8,522 cats and dogs last year. The good news is that this number is down approximately 15% from 2013.

The Foundation also participated in and funded the rescue of 24 labradors (14 adults, 8 puppies and 2 pregnant females) in Palm Beach County that were being bred and in poor health, and funded and transported over a dozen kittens and a dozen dogs to new homes in New Hampshire.

The Foundation hopes to do even more in 2015.

Want to help? Here are two easy ways…

1)  Dine at Darbster. Enjoy a delightful repast on the Bistro’s waterfront deck and know that your dining will help dogs and cats in need.

2) Consider making a donation. Every dollar helps.

  • $100 funds a dog spay/neuter ($20 gift card & a Darbster glass)
  • $85 funds a trip to New Hampshire, where adoption is basically assured ($15 gift card and a Darbster glass).
