2014 Cats vs. Dogs Raises 44K Pounds of Pet Food!

Our wonderful friends at BlueGrace Logistics came through in a BIG way for pets in need. For their annual Cats vs. Dogs competition, where female employees (cats) and male employees (dogs) compete to see who can collect the most pet food for our animals, they collected MORE THAN 44K POUNDS OF FOOD! A few of our animals visited the headquarters on Friday, February 28, 2014 to see the food get loaded and to give an official THANK YOU!

Though the cats won this competition, yet again, our animals are the real winners and we are so grateful. Thank you, Blue Grace!

2014 Gasparilla Children’s Parade

The Krewe of Argos, named after Argos The Great Dog from Homer’s “Odyssey”, was in full force on Saturday, January 18. Two- and four-legged pirates alike stormed Bayshore Blvd to throw treasured beads to the children of Tampa Bay. We even had a Feline First Mate there to represent the cats! It was a wonderful time for all and a great opportunity to advocate for our homeless pets!
