Dogma Animal Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, volunteer based organization serving Sonoma, Napa, and Marin Counties. They are dedicated to saving homeless and abandoned dogs from overcrowded animal control facilities throughout the State of California.
Their purpose is to literally save lives by help animals on the brink of death – animals scheduled for euthanasia due to overcrowding, or abandoned or orphaned animals.

Brother Spellbinder plays well-crafted songs with old world ache and modern angst. Sometimes described as Cabaret Folk-rock, Cowboy Victoriana, Boho Chamber-Folk, they veer off the beaten track with plaintiff vocals, unusual arrangements, and a variety of textures. The daughter of Big Brother & The Holding Co.’s original drummer, Alzara grew up in a rock-n-roll scene and learned early that music could move mountains. She formed Brother Spellbinder with roots guitarist and local fisherman Jamie Wilson in 2012, an early graduate from San Francisco’s School of the Arts High School. The group also features Steve La Porta on drums and Gabriel Beistline on cello. Newest members Helena Tietze also on cello and vocals and Sean Griffin on electric and lead guitar.
