Hey! Next weekend (April 28th) there is a Pet Fair (sponsored by rescue groups) in Cincinnati called "It's A Pet AfFair". We are looking for local sugar glider rescue groups to participate! It is a one day event, (Saturday) and is ALWAYS in the last day of April. We are also looking for any sugar glider rescue groups who may want to and out info at the Wiener Dog Races in August- I completely understand if sugar gliders themselves will not be present at the races (it is littered with doxies and very active).
If any rescues are interested PLEASE contact either me through E-mail : ToughCheeseSmallPaws@gmail.com or contact Debby Manning at Newfie@fuse.net.
I know this is completely last minute, and I do apologize, but these events run every year on the same weekends and have for several years.
I was just approached about any glider rescues in the area who would like to join- it is a day out in the park in the public's eye at an event held by SAAP (Stray Animal Adoption Program) who is a non-profit group who fosters out and adopts out not only strays but rescue animals.
This would be the PERFECT time to educate a large population of people at once about PROPER sugar glider care, about their needs, about some myths of sugar glider husbandry and about how wonderful these animals are. Last year there were thousands of people who came to the event and it had extensive media coverage.
So please, if any of you are part of a sugar glider rescue or if you know someone who is please pass this on to them. We have a horse rescue group lined up, several dog and cat rescue groups lined up, reptile rescues lined up, an animal communicator, several of the Cincinnati Cyclones are there, and I know last year we had a police dog demo (I am not sure if they will be back again this year or not.)
Okay, now asking aside-
April 28th there is a Pet fair in Cincinnati! (check out the link above). It will be a blast with activities to do for kids of all ages (0-99) and along side with the pet show is the Classic car show going on in conjunction with the pet fair- so if you want to bring your fur friend do come down and enjoy a day in the park with pets, music, prizes, good food, and classic cars (and hockey). There is also a great meet up of the mascots- which should prove to be fun!
It's free to get in and if you know a friend or a relative who is looking for a companion friend, there are plenty of dogs and cats available for adoption there who are in need of a loving home. :D
