We stride because they need us, and that’s why we need you. Animal Coalition of Tampa
Tampa, FL (PRWEB) September 26, 2013
To help the Animal Coalition of Tampa reach and surpass its goal for this year’s Stride for Strays, please consider walking with us on October 20, or donating to one of our existing team members. This is the 5th year Brown & Brown employees are participating in the event and have secured a sponsorship from Brown & Brown Inc. B&B employees, family and friends are invited to join us or support our team Cheetahs for Paws.
This event is the main reason ACT can continue to provide high quality, affordable medical care for bay area owners and pets. The ACT depends on of all the walkers that participate in Stride every year. With the help of volunteers and donors ACT was able to build a new 10,000 square foot facility--helping even more families who could otherwise not afford quality care for their pet.
It's a full day of pet fun planned for the whole family. Here's what is in store:
- Top walker & team prizes & drawing to win a vacation for individuals raising $1,000+!
- Live Music from The Lint Rollers, Quivering Rhythm Hounds & Jonny G Lyon!
- Dock Diving & the Doggie Fun Zone!
- Halloween Costume Contest with Veronica Citron!
- K-9 Demos & the Tampa Bay Times Adoptable Pet Parade!
- Doggie Spa & Nail Trim, Plus People & Pet Massages!
- 50/50 Raffle, Animal Characters & more!

About the Animal Coalition of Tampa (ACT)
ACT grew out of the realization that 43,000 animals a year were entering the county animal services shelters. In March 2006, with the opening of (ACT’s) low cost clinic, only 16% of the animals were leaving alive. Now, due to over 40,000 low cost spays and neuters, the numbers have begun to turnaround. ACT is focused on both owned and feral cat spay/neuter programs. It is working in conjunction with other animal welfare organizations in Hillsborough County to end the euthanasia of 26,000 companion animals a year.
