FOLBA out meeting the community at Pet Supplies Plus 1 Year Anniversary

On Saturday May 1st Friends of Long Beach Animals was out at the Los Altos Pet Supplies Plus helping the pet store celebrate their 1 year anniversary.

Along with Long Beach Animal Care Services, FOLBA was meeting members of the community and sharing information about their mission.   Some video recording from the Pawz TV crew was also happening and a video of the event is expected to be released soon.

One of the highlights of the event was their new puppy mascot, yet un-named.   FOLBA is having a contest to help name the critter and and voting options will be posted soon on social media.

Special thanks to Pet Supplies Plus for hosting and the community for stopping by and giving generous donations to Friends of Long Beach Animals.
