Parade of Rescues coming to Pinellas Park

PINELLAS PARK – With more than 30 adoption groups scheduled to attend, the fifth annual Parade of Rescues will be presented Saturday, Jan. 18, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Pinellas Park Pet Supplies Plus, 7331 Park Blvd. N.

The event is designed to provide a strong chance for furry friends to find their forever homes. Tampa Bay residents will have a great opportunity to meet a wide variety of adoptable dogs and cats from rescue groups throughout the state.

The need for finding good homes for stray animals in the community has never been greater. In 2012, more than 10,000 animals were euthanized in four top shelters in the Tampa Bay area alone. Shelter euthanasia is the leading cause of death for both cats and dogs in the United States.

The first Parade of Rescues event was hosted by the Pinellas Park Pet Supplies Plus in January of 2009 in hopes of finding loving homes for sheltered and fostered animals. Every year the event has grown, attracting rescue groups from greater distances, and matching larger numbers of adoptable pets with responsible owners. This year, 33 adoption groups, a new record number, have agreed to attend.

Following is a list of animal rescue organizations scheduled to participate in the Pinellas Park Pet Supplies Plus Parade Of Rescues event:

• Dalmatian Rescue of Tampa Bay

• Pibble to the Rescue

• Kickapoo Rescue

• Golden Retriever Rescue Mid-Florida

• Pug Rescue of Florida

• Scottish Terrier Rescue of the Southeast

• We Care 4 Paws

• Florida SharPei Rescue

• Animal Luvers Dream Rescue

• Canine Estates

• Furever Yours Rescue (cats)

• Husky Haven

• Gulfstream Guardians Angels Rottweiler Rescue

The event also will feature food and beverage sales supporting Boy Scouts Troop 337, K-9 demonstrations from the Pinellas Park K-9 Unit and question-and-answer sessions with veterinarian Dr. Mike from Pinellas Home Pet Care.

“Considering that one quarter of animals entering shelters are purebred and most are under 18 months old, we truly believe that anyone can find the pet they want through adoption,” said Dave Oser in a press release. Oser is the owner of Pinellas Park Pet Supplies Plus. “We created this event five years ago in hopes of helping large numbers of homeless animals find caring families.”
