Upcoming (Animal) Events

A few great events and opportunities going on around Tampa Bay, especially for animal lovers.

On Sunday there's a book discussion on E.B. White's Charlotte's Web.
Where: John F. Germany Public Library @
900 N Ashley Drive

When: Sunday, July 25 @ 3 p.m.
(Parking for much of downtown is free on the weekends/daily after 6 p.m. north of Kennedy!)

If the pig story is a little too weepy for you, August's book discussion is Kurt Vonnegut's collection of short stories, Welcome to the Monkey House.

(It's also on the last Sunday of the month at 3 p.m.) Both library events are free and open to the public.

Another event going on tomorrow is Birdstock, a benefit for the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary. Musicians in the ever-growing line up include Johnny Zoom Cheerleading Squad, Sandy Atkinson, Julie Black, Ronny Elliott, Natty Moss Bond, Wendy and the Soul Shakers, The Charming Devils, Dog Peter Pat, and Rebekah Pulley. (Full schedule provided at the Birdstock link above.) Definitely the place to be if you love local music or want to delve into it.

Where: The Beach Theatre (and surroundings); 300 block of Corey Avenue in St. Pete Beach.
When: 2 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Cost: $10 for a wristband to get into the day's events

Last but not least, I've heard some terrible news regarding the treatment of man's best friend in Florida. This weekend the folks at Dunedin Doggie Rescue have been busy transporting 30 pups down to our area, saved from a pitbull ring in the northern part of the state.

If you are interested in becoming a DDR volunteer or foster parent to a rescued dog (or would like to adopt one or two!) please contact Dunedin Doggie Rescue as soon as possible.

P.S. There's also a one-year-old lab pup in my family that needs a new home. He has a great a family, but two working parents and no yard leave him in need of a different situation.

Email me if you're interested, or need more info on any of this.

Be safe out there!
