Pet Store Owners Put Money Where Their Hearts Are.
Instead of asking why thousands of cats and dogs are euthanized every year, two St. Petersburg, Florida pet industry veterans and entrepreneurs take matters into their own hands.
All of this comes as no surprise to many Florida rescue groups who are preparing to converge on the Bay Area with their adoptables this Saturday, May 7 at the open invitation of Pet Food Warehouse. “The Kupfers and their staff have always been very welcoming to rescue groups and their volunteers,”
The first ever PetFood Warehouse Pet Rescue Event will be held at the store from 11am until 3pm. In addition to presenting the multiple rescue groups, there will be live entertainment, demonstrations and giveaways throughout the day.
“Right now, more than ever, the rescue groups and shelters are over-abundant with dogs and cats who need to be adopted. The volunteers and foster homes are working diligently to find permanent homes for these companion animals. Providing them with a free venue in which to showcase the many adoptables available is the least we could do for them,” said Susie Kupfer.
What: 1st Annual Pet Rescue Event
Why: Free To The Public
When: Saturday, May 7, 11am — 3pm
Where: PetFood Warehouse, Town Plaza Shopping Center, 6155 18th Street North, St. Petersburg, FL.
