The event that started it all! In the fall of 2017, the Thomas family planned to pack their trailer up with pet supplies and drive down to Florida to help those in need with First Coast No More Homeless Pets and Best Friends Animal Society. Stephanie and Alix put together a supply-drive and fundraising event in Chicago to benefit the cats and dogs left homeless and in need after Hurricane Irma.
We turned to the Chicagoland community for donations to help the animals in need. We hosted a dog-friendly happy hour on the rooftop of Joe’s on Weed St. In return for donations, guests received a complimentary Ketel One cocktail.
We were able to gather dog/cat crates, dog/cat food and bowls, cat litter and pans, poop bags, toys, treats, bed and much more!
