Lee County Domestic Animal Services, along with various county agencies, area shelters and rescues, will decorate kennels and catteries for the “Flip This Kennel” event to highlight shelter pets in the county’s adoption center.
Visitors to the shelter, 5600 Banner Drive, Fort Myers, can vote for their favorite flip from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, April 1.
People also can vote on the Animal Services Facebook page, Facebook.com/LeeCountyDomesticAnimalServices/ by liking the picture of a favorite kennel or cattery all day Saturday and Sunday, April 1 and 2. Winners will be posted on the Facebook page Monday, April 3.
This is the ninth annual “Flip This Kennel” event and this year’s theme is “Sports.” Expect to see creative spins on Puppy Bowl, quidditch, Red Sox versus Twins and more. Prizes will be awarded for first, second, third place and honorable mention in both in-house and Facebook votes.
