Mark the calendar for “Dog Day Afternoon 2014”
Save the date because JCP CARES is planning Dog Day Afternoon 2014 on Sunday, April 6th promising another fantastic afternoon of furry and family fun. The fundraiser will host dogs and their owners as they enjoy the popular canine obstacle course, dog washes, “pet-i-cures” (nail trims), pet adoptions, photographs and a special demonstration by the St. Johns County K9 unit. Luckee Dog Ice Cream, Florida Pet Chef Express and Invisible Fence of the First Coast will be on hand this year, as well as Julington Creek Animal Hospital, who will be providing low cost Micro Chipping at the event. Families will also enjoy bouncy-houses, hot dogs and snacks provided by the Bartram Trail Rotary, crafts and vendors just to name a few of the many activities.
The event will run from 12 – 4 pm at Plantation Park, 875 Davis Pond Blvd., Julington Creek Plantation. Tickets will be available on site for the various activities and food. This year Friends of St. Johns County Pet Center will be the recipient of proceeds generated from Dog Day Afternoon.

Several local businesses, such as Publix, Julington Creek Carpet Care, Brandon Pest Control and Hawaiian Shaved Ice, are joining the fun. “Teaming up with our community’s businesses for mutual support of this nonprofit while offering pet adoption is so valuable in our community. Being able to do it in such a fun way for people and their pooches is priceless!” says Kathy Bravo, President and Founder of JCP CARES.
JCP CARES, as a grassroots non-profit organization, has to date generated almost $500,000 in charitable giving, and logged more than 6,500 community service hours. If you would like to become
