A total of 482 animal lovers attended the 22nd annual Pets & Piña Coladas event at Keys Kritters Pet Shop on Dec. 14-15. Animals of all shapes and sizes – from small dogs to large dogs, from hairless cats to hedgehogs, and more – lined up with their owners to get pictures taken with Santa. All participants left with a refreshing piña colada (humans only) and a doggy gift bag full of treats like Greenies, Stella & Chewy’s Meal Mixers, compostable waste bags, food samples and treats. Started in 1997, Pets & Piña Coladas began as a way to bring together fellow pet owners and raise money for organizations along the Upper Keys, based on donations of $1 per photo taken. Since its inaugural year, proceeds have been donated to organizations like the Upper Keys Humane Society, Caring for Cats, and MarrVelous Pet Rescue, among others. Proceeds from this year’s event went to the Coral Shores High School Marine Lab, which Keys Kritters owner Robby Majeska set up for Coral Shores 10 years ago.
