Friends of Strays Animal Shelter St Petersburg FL

The friends of Strays Animal Shelter St Petersburg FL, had their annual luncheon on Sat March 17th 2012 in support of all the animals they are able to help and what a job they do.  The event was held at the Hilton Downtown St Petersburg and drew quite a crowd including Raymond the Tampa Bay Rays mascot.

We were greeted by smiling faces and a gathering of the cutest kitty cats ever currently resident at the shelter, most of which found forever families only too glad to take them home for some extra cuddles.

This annual event was so well organized, we had a tree course lunch a raffle and a silent auction with the most amazing prizes donated by local businesses even I came home with a bundle of goodies, including a painting by a local painter, some dog training for my grown up puppies and some acupuncture for my husband (needles not my thing) not to mention my gift certificate for a hair salon in Clearwater that I won in the raffle.  During lunch we were treated to a fashion show by White House Black Market and a local singer called Brielle Melody with a beautiful voice.

All in all we had a great afternoon I can’t tell you the amount of fun we had with the auction but I can tell you that my husband thinks it would have cost him less if he had just let me take home another kitty cat.

Two years ago I adopted two kittens from these guys so I thank them every day for taking care of my girls when they needed someone to give a helping hand.

I will definitely post this next year when, maybe a few of you might want to join us for some fun and support this great cause.

These kitties are just too cute. I think it was great that you attended the event and participated int he silent auction. You chose a very good cause. Friends of Strays does a fantastic job for all these poor pets.

Barbara, I wish the entire office had time but right now we are completely consumed with our new Westwinds condo complex in Treasure Island. We have an open house every day and we are getting great response. 

That said we were glad that at least one of us could make it. Heather Milbourn cares deeply about animals and she is really getting involved with all these organizations that help pets.

Heather, what a sweet blog post, it fits your caring and sincere personality that you would want to help animals. Although I didn't even know you went to this event, I am not at all surprised that you did. Good job that you made it a point to go and support the Friends of Strays!
