Rally to Rescue and Purina Team with Pet Supplies Plus to Help Find Homes for Homeless Pets

PINELLAS PARK, Fla. – Tampa Bay area residents looking to find a new, furry best friend may want to mark Saturday, January 21, 2012, on their calendars – that’s when Pet Supplies Plus will sponsor a Rally to Rescue event at the store, from 10 AM to 2 PM. Over 30 rescue groups with adoptable cats and dogs who need loving, “furrever” homes will be on site. Sponsored by Purina Pro Plan pet food, Rally to Rescue supports smaller pet rescue organizations and raises national awareness for rescue groups of all sizes.
There will be several events at the store between 10 AM and 2 PM that will make the day a fun, enjoyable experience for the whole family, while helping to find new homes for adoptable pets and raising awareness of rescue organizations.
Representatives from the following organizations will be in attendance:

• Purina
• The Pinellas Park Police Department and K-9 Unit
• Artist/Designer Don Boniface
• Laura Allen Studio / Pet Photographer
• Leash on Life Walking Club
• Cub Scout Den

Additionally, Pet Supplies Plus will be offering $5.00 self serve dog washes (1/2 off) during the event and Purina will have product specials and promotions. There will also be a Moonwalk for the kids and food and beverages will be available.

Since the program began in 2005, Rally to Rescue has helped to find new homes for over 327,000 cats and dogs nationwide. This event marks the second year the Pinellas Park Pet Supplies Plus has hosted a Rally to Rescue event.

“We love that Rally to Rescue helps smaller rescue organizations that are sometimes overlooked by donors but still need assistance like the larger groups,” said Dave Oser, owner of the Pinellas Park Pet Supplies Plus store. “Additionally, it cares for homeless pets by providing them with care and nutrition before they find forever homes. We are all animal lovers at Pet Supplies Plus and want to see every cat and dog have a loving home, and Rally to Rescue does their best to ensure homeless pets find great families.”
