Established in 2012 on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, Giving Tuesday was created with a singular, simple goal: to encourage businesses, organizations and individuals to do good. Since then it’s grown into a global movement, inspiring people to give back to causes and communities close to their hearts.
On Tuesday, December 3, 2019, PPK will have all hands-on-deck, hosting an animal adoption event from 12 p.m. – 2 p.m. at their downtown office location, 1102 N. Florida Ave. Tampa, FL 33602. The event will take place in the building’s attached private parking lot.
The Humane Society of Tampa Bay, Florida Boxer Rescue and Paw Print Hearts will be on-site, each with 3 adoptable dogs hoping to find a home this Giving Tuesday.
The animal-loving advertising agency will be grilling $1 hot dogs and veggie dogs, raffling off prizes from their partners such as Clearwater Marine Aquarium, as well as asking guests to bring donations in the form of food, toys, beds and blankets. All proceeds and donations will go to the participating rescues to help them through the busy holiday season.
“To say we’re ‘pet-friendly’ would be an understatement,” says PPK President, Tom Kenney. “At any given day you could find up to 10 dogs at the office. Animals are a member of the family to many of us, so we believe in treating them that way. We’re really excited to help these animals find a home and have some fun while doing it.”

ABOUT FLORIDA BOXER RESCUE
Incorporated in 2000, Florida Boxer Rescue Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization whose sole purpose is to find permanent and loving homes for neglected and abandoned Boxers who are in shelters and also to assist owners who must find new homes for their beloved Boxer dogs. We are totally staffed by dedicated volunteers and all Boxers in our program are in foster homes where they can receive love, attention, and any medical assistance needed.
ABOUT PAW PRINT HEARTS
Paw Print Hearts Animal Rescue of Tampa, Florida was established in June 2014 after a group of volunteers spent time at a local county animal shelter and discovered the volume of dogs being abandoned at shelters in Hillsborough County and surrounding counties. Our volunteers learned that healthy dogs are euthanized in these high-kill animal shelters due to overpopulation. Paw Print Hearts Animal Rescue works toward getting dogs placed in local foster homes. We raise funds for boarding and vetting the dogs we save. We hold local adoption events. As of 2018, we saved more than 1,000 dogs and that number increases daily thanks to generous donations, the kindness of foster families, and dedicated volunteers.
