My Furry Valentine

My Furry Valentine will be held at The Shops at Wiregrass in Wesley Chapel on February 11, 2012 from 10 AM to 3 PM when different local animal rescues will come together for a huge pet adoption event with hundreds of adoptable animals.  There will be a wide variety of puppy & adult dog breeds from little Chihuahuas to Great Pyrenees and Heinz 57, as well as kittens and cats! 

While adoption is the main focus there also will be a Pet Photo contest, with 3 different categories:
  1. Show Me the Love, Best Photo featuring you and your pet
  2. Bring on the Love, Most Loveable Photo featuring your pet
  3. Give Me the Love, Best Valentine’s Day Card featuring your pet.
Each photo may only be entered in one category and photos and cards can be done in advance, but can only be entered at the event from 10 to 2 the day of the event. There are 3 winners per category:  1st Place: $100 Gift Card, 2nd Place: $50 Gift Card, 3rd: Place: $25 Gift Card, for the Shops at Wiregrass. Winners will be announced at 3 PM. 

Doggie Fun Zone will be there for everyone's entertainment with a doggie obstacle course that I know my dog would love.  See promo video below:

While there is a fee to enter, the Shops at Wiregrass will be giving a gift card to the top 3 fastest runs of the day, as well as for the slowest.

There will be many different pet related vendors there and the event also has fun for the kids including a bounce house, cotton candy, and face painting.  Additionally, roses will be on sale with proceeds benefitting a local animal rescue.

If you are a pet lover, this looks like an event that you shouldn't miss!
