Other evening highlights will include dancing and acoustic love songs

with Papadakis,’ Maria Papadakis will serve as master of ceremonies
and hostess of the doggie red carpet.

For those without a date, the PSPCA will match guests with eligible
‘bachelor and bachelorette’ dogs looking for a home.  They will also
present a Kitty Korner for those that prefer to flirt with feline
adoptables. Finally, an animal behaviorist will provide consultations
at a special “Dog House.”

Puppy Love Valentines Party returns in 2013 after taking a “cat nap”
in 2012 when the event outgrew the former space. Since its inception
in 2006, the event has attracted 1,000+ attendees and raised nearly
$30,000 in ticket sales and in-kind donations.  Susan Schlisman, owner
of Smokin’ Betty’s and Devil’s Alley, created the event to raise funds
for local animal shelters.  Schlisman is a lifelong animal lover and
advocate, and past PSPCA volunteer, who will attend this year with her
Yorkie Sayde.

Recommended attire for Puppy Love is dog park finest, ie. mart casual.
Tickets are on sale now for $40 at
