NashvilleGab is a proud promotional sponsor of the first ever You Must Love Dogs Fest in Tampa, Florida. The event is only nine days away, and we are excited to attend, spend time with our four-legged friends, and hear some doggone great country music by Jo Dee Messina, Jessica Lynn, and Skyler Clark!
The You Must Love Dogs Fest is benefiting SPCA Florida; an organization which seeks to “eliminate animal suffering and to engage the entire community in the welfare and well-being of animals”. One of the animals the festival holds near and dear is a local pup by the name of Khalessi.
Khalessi was found in Orlando, Florida, severely abused and missing half her face. The adorable pit bull underwent facial reconstructive surgery during which she was provided a brand new nose. The online celebrity received support by dog lovers when Passion 4 Pits started a Facebook page to show Khalessi’s loving ways, despite her horrific injuries.
The surgery took five hours and required the removal of skin from Khalessi’s cheeks to build her snout, but the veterinarians made magic happen and constructed a like new nose and nasal passage for the sweet animal.
Khalessi is just one example of the animals that will be helped through the proceeds raised at the You Must Love Dogs Fest. Tickets are still on sale, and by attending the day-long family-friendly party, you will have a chance to hang out with us; see one of country music’s biggest superstars, Jo Dee Messina; get to know nationally televised country music rising star, Jessica Lynn; and meet local artist, Skyler Clark.
Where’s the downfall?!
We hope to see you all there! Tickets can still be purchased by visiting the festival’s official website.
