Area students volunteer at the My Furry Valentine event.
In February the Wholesome Pet Market sponsored My Furry Valentine, which benefited Have A Heart Animal Rescue and Sugarbelle Foundation. Volunteer students from Brocks Gap Intermediate School, Bumpus Middle School and Hoover High School came out to wash dogs. More than 40 baths were given.
Funds raised for Have A Heart Animal Rescue provided micro-chipping for 23 dogs.
Brian Batista Photography was on hand to take photographs, and people voted all day on the pets in the My Furry Valentine Contest.
Belle, a pointer mix who was adopted from the Greater Birmingham Humane Society, won first place. She is loved by the Hines Family.
Niki, a 4 year old who was rescued from the streets by Memphis Pitbull Safehaven, won second place. Niki is loved by Debbie Smith.
