Cruisn' for Cats & Canines

Cruisn' for Cats & Canines

Ladies and gentlemen, mark your calendars for an event that combines exotic autos, domestic beers, domesticated animals, and rockin' beats. Cruisn' for Cats & Canines is S&S Motorsports 10th Anniversary Open House. They're closing down Jason Lee Place (off Clark Road) for a car show and rock concert, with all proceeds benefiting the Humane Society of Sarasota County.

Come out on Saturday, November 9, 2019, from 10am–3pm. This event is FREE to the public! There will be exotic autos, hot rods, food trucks, and libations. HSSC will be there with adoptable cats and dogs, and all adoption fees will be covered that day thanks to the generosity of the James & Ellen White Family Foundation. At 12:30pm, the Greg Billings Band will take the stage for an exclusive concert. Whether you're a motorhead, a music buff, an animal lover (or all of the above), this is an event you do not want to miss! 

Sponsorships Available Too! 

If your business wants to show its support and reach thousands, then a sponsorship is a great option. Sponsorships start at just $200, and all proceeds benefit HSSC! Click the button below to download the sign-up form (PDF).

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY

By registering for this course, you agree to the following:

The Humane Society of Sarasota County, Inc. (HSSC) wants you to be satisfied with your participation in our Pet Therapy Training Courses. For successful participation and enjoyment, we ask that you understand and agree to the following course requirements:

  1. The fee for this course is non-refundable. Unless otherwise stated, this course runs for four consecutive weeks and there are no make-up classes.
  2. Out of fairness to all participants, classes will begin promptly at the stated time.
  3. Each owner is responsible for providing proper training equipment and suitable treats.
  4. Please remember to wear closed-toe shoes to class.
  5. Remember that every interaction you have with your dog is a training opportunity. Either your dog is training you, or you are training your dog...it's your decision!
  6. If you or your dog is a disruption to the class, the trainer reserves the right to excuse the dog and handler.

I understand that there are inherent risks associated with the presence of dogs in training. I assume full responsibility for myself, my dog, any other handlers of my dog, and any observers that attend my class with me. I agree that I have given full disclosure of any history of aggressive behavior by my dog, and understand that failure to do so will result in being excused from the class and no refund will be given. I agree to hold harmless HSSC, its staff, volunteers, and Board of Directors for any harm that may happen to me or my pet during the course of training. I understand that trainers may intervene in dog-to-dog interactions and separate dogs as needed. I grant full permission to HSSC to use any photographs or video recordings of this event for any purposes.
