File this one under Total Success: our second annual Dog Care Awareness Day was a hit! We provided free Scenthound Express services to 156 dogs, and offered tips and wisdom about preventive care and regular maintenance to their humans. (That's almost $4,000 worth of free services!) Tons of people from all over Palm Beach County showed up and enjoyed all that Downtown at the Gardens has to offer, plus training demonstrations, tips on home dog care, prize giveaways, and absolutely perfect weather. Mindy from Lucky Dog Sports Club offered training demonstrations, Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League had dogs available for adoption, and Friends of Jupiter Beach was there showing their support for all our south Florida pups.
People said they really appreciated the information we provided about the whys and hows of preventive maintenance. It was so much fun to meet everyone and their smiling pups. The human kids seemed to love the face painting and games, and the grown-ups liked the prize giveaways!
A special thanks to Downtown at the Gardens for their support and help, as well as generous donations from many of their tenants: Grimaldi's, Blend Bistro, Blessed Boutique, Ceci, Lola Chiq, Golf Tec, Mimi's Daughter, Taylor Fitness, and TooJay's. What a feel-good, community-building event -- and all for dogs' sake.
Wag on. (Click on the photo below for more great pics!)
