Lake County Animal Services to hold pet adoption carnival at Hurricane Dockside Grill

RELEASE DATE: March 28, 2014

TAVARES — Lake County Animal Services and Hurricane Dockside Grill have teamed up with shelter animals’ best interests at heart to host  the “WOOF” pet adoption carnival from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. Saturday, April 12 at the restaurant located at 3351 W. Burleigh Blvd., Tavares.

Animal Services will have pets available for on-the-spot adoptions, and as an extra incentive, Hurricane Dockside is offering $25 gift certificates to people who bring home a pet from the carnival.

“We are thankful for the support of community partners and friends like Hurricane Dockside Grill,” said Brian Sheahan, director of Lake County’s Department of Community Safety & Compliance. “Together, we hope to accomplish one of Animal Services’ top priorities – to get shelter pets adopted into loving forever homes.”
The outdoor, family-friendly event will be held on Hurricane’s patio and will feature live music, a balloon animal artist and face painter for children.

“Hurricane Dockside is the largest of the pet-friendly restaurants in Tavares,” said Derrick Haggerty, general manager of Hurricane Dockside Grill. “It just made sense for Hurricane to co-host an event like the adoption carnival. Our goal is to get as many of the animals adopted as possible.”
