Pet Events for October 22 - October 29, 2014

This week's Pet Events Newsletter is brought to you by
the International Association of Pet Fashion Professionals!

The "Pet Fashion Almanac 2015" is NOW AVAILABLE!

It's a handy annual tool and resource for people focusing on pets or pet-themed material in their business. It's meant to be kept close, referenced, dog-eared, and used! People use the information to plan & market- social media, events, conferences, trade shows, PR, direct mail, advertising, and optimal times to implement ideas.  
It has pet holidays by date, week, and month; media & organization lists; fashion weeks; trade shows, conferences and events in the pet industry.

There are also educational how-to articles to help readers maximize the information contained within. Plus, the astrology section provides perfect timing guidance.
Pet writers, bloggers, journalists, social media gurus, business owners, and,
 of course, pet fashionistas adore this valuable tool!

Adoption Corner!


Introducing Bruiser and Faye!


Bruiser is a loving boy who just wants a home to be comfortable in. This male Pit mix is roughly 10 years old. Bruiser knows his name, knows the sit and come commands, and is just an all-around sweetheart. Bruiser is a calm man. He would do best in a calmer home, but would be fine with children, select dogs, and cats. 




Faye is a sweetheart who is between three and four years old. She's thrilled to just be out of the cage and around people. She's a happy girl who is very loving and appreciative. Faye is working with our volunteers to learn her basic commands.

Faye & Bruiser are both available for adoption at the 
Islip Animal Shelter and Adopt-a-Pet Center/Live Love Bark 
210 S. Denver Ave 
Bay ShoreNY 11706 

Call (631) 224-5660 or email for more info!

Or better yet, go there to meet them in person! :)
