Welcome to Events For Pets
Events For Pets Inc is a 501c3 all volunteer nonprofit organization founded in 2010 as an animal advocacy charity whose primary mission was to raise money to help individuals and animal rescues pay for unexpected or emergency veterinary expenses. The original founders retired in 2019 and rather than disband the nonprofit, a new group of volunteers offered to continue the organization's lifesaving mission. The charity was moved to Tampa, Florida and rebranded as Events For Pets.
WHAT WE DO
Events For Pets helps at-risk pets remain with their families and animal rescues to achieve their goals by organizing fundraising, educational, & adoption events. In 2020, Events For Pets acquired KittyCon Tampa Bay and then tested post-Covid waters with MeowWeen Tampa 2021. Our long term objective is to return to our original mission by establishing a charitable fund to assist rescues and families with emergency or unexpected veterinary expenses and pet supplies.
