HSTB's HOWLiday Block PAWty Fundraiser

Brianna, our favorite holiday dog.

Happy Holidays! I hope every one of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with loved ones (both the two and four legged variety).
With Thanksgiving behind us it’s time to start thinking about Brianna’s heartworm treatments fundraiser again. As you probably know by now, everyone’s favorite foster dog is scheduled to begin her treatments in mid-December at the Humane Society of Tampa Bay.

I'd say I feel silly in this getup, but I feel silly most of the time.

Our October fundraiser at Wag Pet Boutique on Davis Island was a huge success (thank you again, Wag!). Our Mini-Behavior Consults brought in enough money to cover all of Brianna’s existing medical expenses to date, plus enough to have a little extra left over for whatever additional veterinary costs will inevitably arise and we have a good start on the fund for her heartworm treatments as well. To those of you who have donated to the Brianna Fund thus far, we cannot thank you enough!

Santa's reindeer have got nothing on me! I am one cool holiday dog. 
In fact, the Mini-Behavior Consults were such a success (we actually had people waiting for consults at the end of the day so that I had to finish meeting with people outside on the sidewalk after Wag closed) that I approached the Humane Society of Tampa Bay about doing a second fundraiser there. But the Humane Society had a better idea… they offered to let us have our own booth at their annual HOWLiday Block PAWty to be held on Thursday, December 20th in Hyde Park Village from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm. So mark your calendars!

Come get a Mini-Behavior Consult at Brianna's Fundraiser at the Humane Society of Tampa Bay's annual HOWLiday Block PAWty on Thursday, December 20th from 6:00-9:00 pm at
1602 Snow Avenue in Hyde Park Village, Tampa (look for our booth somewhere between the Williams Sonoma and the Pottery Barn Kids). Doggone Good Goodies will be at our booth too, with some of their organic, all-natural and grain-free dog treats.

For those of you who cannot attend the HOWLiday Block PAWty but would like to contribute to the Brianna Fund,  you can make a donation by credit card by contacting Krystle Jimenez, Medical Operations Assistant at the Humane Society of Tampa Bay at (813) 252-2027. Or you can mail a check to the Humane Society of Tampa Bay Attn: Krystle Jimenez, 3809 N. Armenia Ave., Tampa, FL 33607. Please make checks payable to the Humane Society of Tampa Bay. Be sure to note payment is to be applied to the Brianna Fund C/O Leah Booker.

Won't you come to my fundraiser... pretty please?
Because donations for this fund are made directly to the Humane Society of Tampa Bay they are 100% tax deductible.
Any donations we receive above and beyond the balance owed for Brianna’s existing heartworm treatments will be set aside for other dogs in need of heartworm treatments.

Thank you so much for your generosity this holiday season and we look forward to seeing you on December 20th 

Happy Holidays, from our pack to yours!

P.S. Huge thanks to Ashlie Burke for the beautiful holiday photos of Brianna!
