Share a Smile

This month, there are so many different ways you can make a difference. You can adopt a pet, watch a movie, play in a golf tournament, attend a fancy gala, or walk for a cause!

Sept. 14

Calling all pet lovers! You’ll get a chance to adopt a pet at Purrfect Pawlooza from 4-6pm at Polo Park in Miami Beach. Admission is free. Purrfect Pawlooza was created by three girl scouts in order to educate people and inspire them to adopt a pet. Even if you are not looking for a pet to adopt, there will be other events to watch such as an animal fashion show, a pet reading corner, arts and crafts, and an obstacle course. Be sure to bring a picnic lunch. See you there!
