The event, complete with Bark Tenders, Pawty Pawleece, quizzes, give-aways and all around fun will also honor members of the BlogPaws Community and volunteers with awards and special blog badges, we’ll have great quiz prizes, and lots of time for socializing with your pet loving pals with music and an open (virtual) cocktail and hors d’oeuvres bar.

The #BlogPawty staff will be donating their pawty earnings to Stray Rescue of St. Louis, a shelter in Missouri, that typically cares for 200 dogs and 100 cats at any given time. The shelter’s volunteers recently camped out on the floor for three nights when temperatures dropped to unbearable levels so stray animals could be brought in after hours. That is a group that is definitely making a difference in the lives of animals!

“Meet” our #BlogPawty Staff

Come hungry (and thirsty) because we will be serving up our signature #BlogPawty (Virtual) Cocktails and Hors d’Oeuvres! #BlogPawty BaconPicture1 Bites with Apricot, Cheese or Sardines nom nom! When you need a drink, try one of our Bacon Sours.

What else is on the menu? Quizzes and Prizes

There will be prizes for cats, dogs, smaller pets and even for the humans!

You won’t want to miss the chance to win a one-night hotel stay at the Westin Lake Las Vegas that we will be giving away to three  different winners. The stays are valid for use on May 7, 8, 9 or 10, 2014 during the BlogPaws 2014 conference – and yes, they’re transferable, if you’re unable to attend (but we hope you can attend!)

Be sure to follow @BlogPawsChange and @BlogPawsKristin on Twitter, and make sure they follow you back, so you can DM (direct message) them the answers to the quiz questions, to be eligible for each prize.

Many quiz questions will link to the BlogPaws Community, where only BlogPaws Community Members will be able to see the answers. Membership can take 24 – 48 hours to approve, so if you want to join, don’t wait! Join the BlogPaws Community here, now!
