The Boca Grande Dog Show, recently hosted by the Boca Grande Woman’s Club, raised a whopping $13,000 for us here at Suncoast Humane Society. The biennial event was held at the Boca Grande Community Center.
Dog show judges awarded prizes in multiple categories, including a new coveted “Rescue” class. Contestants shared heartwarming stories on how each dog was rescued and is now in its permanent, loving home. Adoptable dogs from Suncoast Humane Society as well as trained pet therapy teams were also seen strolling through the grounds.
Our Executive Director, Phil Snyder, states: “This was truly a fun and exciting event that warranted a huge turnout of dog owners and animal lovers. We wish to thank the Boca Grande Woman’s Club for its generosity and support of our programs, services, and the homeless pets entrusted to our care.”
