(1-30-11)With the poor economy – adoption interest has dramatically reduced.  The number of surrenders has become almost staggering.  We need to more “advertising” than ever, and rescue events are a great way to do that.  It’s getting to be time for the Spring rescue events.  We did one yesterday in Winter Park at Pookie’s Bow Wow Bakery.  It was our first time for that event, and what a great event that turned out to be. 

We plan to do that one again in the future.  For February – so far we’ve got 4 events planned.  Our regular Petco events on the 2nd Saturday (Feb 12) in Titusville and 3rd Saturday (Feb 19) in Orange City.  We can always use more hands for those events.  We have a new event that we would like to attend – it’s Saturday Feb 27 at the Mr. Petman Supercenter in South Daytona from 10 – 4.  Then, the next day, Sunday Feb 27, we will have a booth at Mardi Gras Paws in the Park at Riverfront Village in Cocoa.  This is always a good event. 

Then in March, besides the regular Petco events, we have our biggest event of the year – it’s the Seminole County Adoptathon on March 19.  I believe the hours are normally 10 – 3 for this event.  Please let us know if you can help with any of these events.

We also are trying to get together some people to do a monthly Petco event in the Vero Beach area.  Any volunteers?
