Animal Welfare Fundraisers Going On Today

Yappy Hour Benefiting SPCA Tampa Bay

The SPCA of Tampa Bay is hosting their first Yappy Hour this evening leading up to Pet Walk 2017.

The event will be at 400 Beach Seafood and Tap House located at 400 Beach Dr., St. Petersburg and will take place from 5-7 p.m.

Free to the public there will also be free food and giveaways. While enjoying the event be sure to sign up for Pet Walk 2017.

Pet Walk is an annual walk to raise money for rescuing and rehabbing pets in the Tampa community. Each year the walk features costume contests, agility courses, a doggie water park, and more fun for pets and their owners. Last year’s Pet Walk raised over $170,000 to support animals in need.

Fundraiser For Pinellas County Animal Welfare Trust Fund

After having fun at Yappy Hour head over to Snappers Grill & Comedy Club to enjoy a fundraiser for the Pinellas County Animal Welfare Trust Fund.

From 6:30-9 pm there will be delicious food and activities for every attendee to enjoy. Money raised from this event will go into the Animal Welfare Trust Fund, which is used for supplies, spay/neuter, shots, heartworm tests, and much more.

Some of the organizations involved include Humane Society of Pinellas, Pet Pal Animal Shelter, Operation: SNIP, Inc., Rescue Pink Meow Now and SPCA Tampa Bay.

100 percent of the proceeds will go to the fund, except the $1 service fee. Tickets are $15.
