On January 28th, the City of Plantation Parks and Recreation Department held their 11th annual Dog Expo, called Doggie Palooza. The event was designed to provide dog owners with information regarding products and services offered by companies in the community. The entry fees collected from Doggie Palooza benefited Paws for Smiles, Inc. Paws for Smiles, Inc., is a non-profit organization staffed by volunteers and dedicated to bringing smiles to nursing homes, hospices, hospitals and schools in South Florida through registered pet therapy dogs.
PetMeds was proud to help support Doggie-Palooza by donating pet products such as pet steps and ramps, pet car seats and a gift certificate, which were used as prizes in the games and contests at the event. The event was a huge success with 64 vendors, and lots of funds were collected to donate to Paws for Smiles, Inc.
