Pookies Dog Wash Event
Was a Fitting End to the
Four Legged Food Drive
Central Florida Animal Food Pantry is awash in donations. This young charitable organization, whose objective is to keep dogs with their families by providing needed pet food and other supplies, has been embraced by the pet industry in our area with great enthusiasm.
Free dog baths were also part of the deal for event participants, as well as a couple of cooling kiddie-pools for anyone to take a dip.

These beautiful baskets and more were won by lucky raffle ticket winners. They certainly did give away some great goodies.

There are more upcoming events at both Pookies and for Central Florida Animal Pantry. On October 10, CFAP will team up with Pookies and the Central Florida Pets Directory for the First Annual Petpalooza at Pookies in Avalon Park. Join the fun for the whole family with food, pet rescue groups, costume contests, music, children's activities and much more.
Tux for Tails, a sit down dinner and fund raiser for CFAP will be held December 5 at the Double Tree at Universal. Dinner, dancing, music and a silent auction will all add to this upscale event to benefit CFAP.
Currently, the Animal Pantry is seeking volunteers to hand out food for a couple of hours each day. If you are able to volunteer, even a small amount of time, please contact them through their website at the links I have provided. Your help will be greatly appreciated by Erica, Zach and their troupe. They are truly grateful for all of the help and support they have received.
