Why should you represent Best Friends as a Fix at Four Exhibit Booth Attendant at the Amazing Pet Expo in Tampa Bay, FL on Saturday, March 23rd?

Because 70,000 puppies and kittens are born each day and 50% of those litters are accidents. Many of these animals end up in shelters. People don’t realize that kittens can get pregnant as early as 4 months old and puppies 6 months old. It’s a simple spay/neuter message that can prevent accidental litters and help us bring a time of No More Homeless Pets, “Prevent more. Fix at Four.”

As an Exhibit Booth Attendant (position description attached), you will talk to the pet loving attendees about our Fix at Four (spay/neuter) campaign, provide collateral materials and raise Best Friends awareness.

You will also receive a very hip, cool Fix at Four t-shirt as a token of our appreciation!

We need you and 4-5 other volunteers to help at the following times:
·         1-2 volunteers on Friday afternoon (sometime between 12-6pm) for booth set-up
·         2 volunteers on Saturday (event day) for the 9:30am-2:30pm shift
·         2 volunteers on Saturday (event day) for the 2:00pm-7:00pm shift
·         You can volunteer for both set up and event day shift(s)
·         Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age
