      Humane Society’s Pup Crawl A Sellout Success

         This year’s Miami Vice-themed Pup Crawl was a sellout, which is great news for the shelter
       animals at the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast. That’s because all proceeds benefit them.
       The event raised more than $7,400.
         Presented by Wagnolias and sponsored by Camp Bow Wow, the Ninth Annual Pup Crawl
       attracted 150 attendees and dozens of dogs. Participants were given the opportunity to access six
       venues in Stuart’s downtown district, where they received one free drink at each stop. Participating
       venues were the Lush Lounge, Spritz City Bistro, The Hangar, Sneaki Tiki, Duffy’s Sports Grill
       and Taco Shack Bar & Grill.
         The Miami Vice costume contest winners were Emily Jones and Cash for Best Human/Dog
       Duo, Stuart Sound Animal Hospital’s team for Best Human, and Gypsy for Best Dog. The
       winner of the 50/50 raffle was Meghan McRoberts of WPTV NewsChannel 5 and she donated
       her winnings back to the shelter to further support enrichment efforts for the shelter animals.

                                                                                  Stuart Sounds Animal Hospital’s team won the Best Human award.
