Creatures of all sizes and breeds will stir at the famed Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables on Dec. 17 from 6:30-10:30 p.m. in a benefit for the Pets’ Trust and the Pets’ Voice, the initiative to stop the killing of animals housed in county facilities.

The event will take place in the Country Club Ballroom, which will open its doors to guests and their pets, the only time during the year that the hotel allows animals in the ballroom. There will be plenty of pet friendly vendors to help you treat your favorite fourlegged friend to the good things life. There also will be numerous vendors selling items that will be perfect for all the people on your Christmas list — fine jewelry for your wife, the latest fashions for your sister and specialty items for your hubby – all in a festive setting designed to make that last-minute holiday shopping an enjoyable experience.

What about the best present of all? The gift of unconditional love. What better way to celebrate the holidays than giving your best friend a companion that would love to have a forever home and not be alone for the holidays? There will be all types of amazing dogs and cats present that are looking for that special home. All pets have been spayed/neutered and are up to date on their shots.

The holiday venue will have The Children’s Voice Chorus entertaining the crowd with traditional Christmas Carols. The complimentary food will be catered by local five star restaurants. There will be all kinds of scrumptious fare for everyone, including delicious desserts by You Oughta’ Taste My Mama’s Cakes and Arfpetizers by Laly of the Doggie Bag Café. There will be a cash bar available.

Even a canine fashion show is scheduled, with Elite models from G Girl productions showcasing holiday designs by Shih- Nanigans and Designs by Diane, all to entertain you and your favorite pooch. Come and be a part of a life saving event that will benefit our animals and bring back your Christmas Spirit!
