Paws in the park, downtown Orlando pet fundraiser Feb. 11th 2012

Downtown Orlando pet event, paws in the park

It’s not often I talk about a local Orlando event, normally I talk about the theme parks and tourist news. But I wanted to let you all know about what’s going on this weekend in downtown Orlando.

This Feb. 11th, 2012 in Downtown Orlando at Lake Eola will be the 18th annual Paws in the Park pet fundraiser event! Like the name says it will be for people to come out with their dogs, walk around Lake Eola and raise money for the local Orlando SPCA.

The Orlando SPCA, otherwise known as the pet humane society, helps many homeless pets of all kinds each year. It does a vast amount of services for pets that need a good home as well as helping pets of low income families.

This years Paws in the Park pet event will be from 9:00 AM to noon. There will be live music and entertainment, a kids zone, great food and drinks, many pet vendors, raffles and much more.

All proceeds benefit the Orlando SPCA and there will be many pet lovers out there raising money for this great cause. So come out to Orlando’s Lake Eola, have fun and help out homeless and needy pets! :)
