Written by broebling on March 16, 2018
On Friday, March 16, Fur Kids Foundation’s inaugural Tail Talks takes place at Red Hills Veterinary Hospital, 2007 S. Douglas Highway, Unit E1. Tail Talks is an opportunity for families with pets to mingle with other people who love animals, and learn about businesses in this community who help pet lovers keep their pets healthy and happy!
Pet lovers who swing by Crazy Daisy Floral, 810 EZ Street, between 8 am-6 pm on Saturday, March 17 can make a 4 inch x 12 inch pet-themed sign for only $10 during the It’s Your Lucky Day fundraiser. Signs should only take 15 minutes to make and Fur Kids foundation will receive a ‘pot of gold’ as Crazy Daisy Floral is generously donating 10% of their sales that day back to us! Sayings on the signs include (photos can be viewed on the Foundation’s web site):
- You had me at meow / woof
- Crazy cat / dog lady
- All you need is love … and a cat / dog
- My kids have paws
- Rescued is my favorite breed
- Family (the “a” is a paw
