Pet owners as well as those seeking a pet can enjoy a day with the dogs at Camp Bow Wow Tampa South Shore’s first Find Love on a Leash dog adoption event and rescue group fundraiser.
The event is scheduled for Saturday, April 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Camp Bow Wow, 12218 Balm-Riverview Rd., Riverview.
Camp Bow Wow franchise owner Doris Darga said her goal is to get some of the thousands of dogs awaiting homes in Hillsborough County adopted.
“We’ll have a number of rescue groups on hand to raise funds, find foster families for homeless dogs and to adopt dogs to forever homes,” said Darga.
Local veterinarians, pet photographers, groomers, pet vendors, trainers, and other businesses will be joining in on the fun and donating raffle prizes to support the rescue organizations.
In addition, music will be provided by Sundown and food and iced treats will be available from the Burger Culture food truck and Kona Ice.
A pet costume contest will take place at noon. Residents are invited to dress their dogs in their cutest or silliest costumes and compete for prizes. There also will be pet photos, low-cost microchips and a puppy kissing booth.
