Help Fundraise $10,000 for Humane Society of Tampa Bay while creating custom artwork of your beloved pet(s) and being featured in a Fundraising Coffee Table Book
The Humane Society of Tampa Bay has had to cancel numerous fundraising events due to the pandemic. The goal of the Fundraising Coffee Table Book Tails of Gratitude - A Collection of Thank You Notes from People to Their Pets is to help the shelter recoup some of those funds, but to also give thanks to the pets in our lives.
Successful applicants will have a luxury photo shoot at our Pet Photo Studio in South Tampa designed just for them. Pet parents will get to choose their favorite photo to be featured in the book, along with the option to purchase printed photographic artwork for themselves.
