MEET 'N GREET THE CANDIDATES
Join us along with ABC Action News and Friends of Strays for a Meet 'n Greet with our furry, friendly candidates. All are welcome to join the fun. We will have coffee, refreshments and snacks for the candidates and their owners. If you haven't voted yet this will be the purrr-fect time to choose a candidate that shares in your goals and expectations of the next chief pet executive officer of Gulfport! We will also be posting the latest polls.
More about Pet Mayor: Gulfport Historical Society is teamed up with Friends of Strays, Pinellas County’s oldest no-kill shelter, to extend a tradition that recognizes the extraordinary purr-tential of our wonderful pets: the Gulfport Pet Mayor election.
Voting opened on January 27. Fans are supporting their candidates by voting (as often as they like) online, at the Gulfport History Museum, and at select locations across town – each vote costs $1. Anyone can vote - you don’t have to be a Gulfport resident!
We’ll announce the winners at Gulfport’s Get Rescued on Feb. 25. All proceeds benefit the Gulfport Historical Society, which runs the Gulfport History Museum and the Gulfport Arts Center, and Friends of Strays, a wonderful no-kill shelter that works to ensure animal companionship is accessible to all through adoption, advocacy, and services.
Coming Soon - be sure to stop in!!!
