Our sweet little adoptees are vaccinated, microcipped, groomed to the max and have been practicing their tail wagging and puppy-dog eyes skill all week. And tomorrow is THE big day..It’s Mutt Madness time with the Suncoast Animal League this Saturday in Highlander Park, Dunedin. It’s a full day with so much to see and do you really do need to sit and stay! Every day this week I’ll be introducing you to some of the pets up for adoption this weekend. The adoption tent is incredibly busy from the moment the day starts so it’s best to get there early. We kick things off at 11:30 am and wrap it up at 5 pm.
You’ll love being a part of the Pet-Owner Lookalike Contest, Dancing with the Paws, hearing our Fido Idol contestants, and it wouldn’t be Mutt Madness without a surprise or two….but you’ll have to be there to see what we’re up to! I’m sure we can also fit another bike or two in for The Ride For The Animals – sign up right now. Another big part of the fun are all the rescue groups that will be with us. We cover all the bases when it comes to pet rescues! Take a look at last year’s event and just think how much more fun and wonderful adoption stories we’ll have to tell this year. We’ve celebrated the lives of the Potato Pups, shed a few tears to the story of the Fab Five which of course had a wonderful ending, and applauded the intrepid Spicie! And of course, there was Puppy Bowl! How cool was it to see the Suncoast Animal League’s two pups Kelly Barkson and Henry featured and know that the work of the Suncoast Animal League and Executive Director Rick Chaboudy received national recognition. Add to that the rescues of pets left homeless after Hurricane Maria devasated the island of Puerto Rico and it’s been an incredible year. Would you like a sneak peek as just a few of the friendly, hopeful faces waiting to meet you tomorrow? Just scroll through the slideshow and I’ll see you tomorrow under the Oaks. Come sit and stay a while.
