October Pet Fair

I will be selling my dog books and others at this event!

On Saturday, October 28, 2017, the Thonotosassa United Methodist Women will be hosting a Pet Fair to benefit the Florida United Methodist Children’s Home. The Pet Fair will be held from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm at the Thonotosassa United Methodist Church Hall on 11905 Fort King Highway, Thonotosassa, Florida. This family event will entertain and educate pet lovers, and pets are welcome to join in the fun! 

There will be a Blessing of the Animals in the morning, followed by Game Classes for pets including a Costume Class. Prizes will be given to all participants and Door Prizes will be handed out to all who sign up.

Next will be free demos and seminars provided by local dog trainers, pet groomer, veterinarian and K9 Police Dogs. Vendors and food provided by the church will be available for sale.

The mission of the Florida United Methodist Children’s Home (FUMCH) is to empower children and families to experience God’s love as revealed in the ministry of Jesus Christ. It was established in 1908 to provide a home for orphans and other children that had nowhere else to live. Today it serves as a diverse ministry with two campuses – one in Tampa - that include residential, therapeutic group, foster and emergency shelter care. The Home also provides independent living assistance and a community child care center. The Equine Therapy program is held at the Madison Youth Ranch and began in 2014. It offers children a country setting in which they can roam, play, and heal. One of the outstanding programs at the Youth Ranch is the Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) program with the assistance of Pinky and Sugar, the resident horses.

“The Tampa office serves 135 children in the Foster Care program,” says Cedric Davis, Director of Foster Care Services in Tampa. “These are children in crisis, including those who are victims of abuse, neglect or abandonment. A child’s length of stay depends on his or her needs, but no matter how long a child is in our care, we give them love, hope and a safe place to call home.”
