SPCA Orlando Veterinary Clinic
Animal shelters in Florida are inundated with homeless pets year-round. In Orlando, as many as 40, 000 homeless dogs and cats will enter the city’s two animal shelters this year alone.
The Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando and Hard Rock International have joined forces to draw attention to the plight of homeless pets in the Sunshine State by launching a collectible Shelter Pet Pin Series. Each segment of the brilliantly colored guitar shaped pin represents a dog or cat adopted from a Florida animal shelter. When the set of six is collected, the shelter pet pins fit together to form a beautiful mosaic of dogs and cats.
A unique pin is available at each participating locations; Hard Rock Cafe Orlando, Hard Rock Cafe Key West, Hard Rock Cafe Miami, Hard Rock Cafe Tampa and Hard Rock Cafe Hollywood, FL. Proceeds from each pin sold in Orlando directly benefit the pet adoption programs at the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando.
“The Shelter Pet Pin series is a fun and unique way for Hard Rock fans to show their support for pet projects in the community, ” says Fraily Rodriguez, Vice President of Community Outreach for the Pet Alliance. “Funds raised by the sale of these pins in Orlando directly benefit the more than 400 homeless dogs and cats in our care every day.”
“Hard Rock International has a long-established history of promoting social awareness and raising funds for global and local causes, ” said Keely Wade, Philanthropy & Marketing Manager for Hard Rock International. “We believe in supporting our community, and we’re all animal lovers here at Hard Rock, so we’re excited about expanding the partnership with animal shelters in each of the five Florida Hard Rock Cafe communities.”
Collect all six to complete the set. A different pin design is featured at each of the participating Hard Rock Cafes and online at .
