Realtors Help Animals Find ‘Forever Homes’

Better Homes And Gardens Real Estate Green Team aims to find people their perfect home. Recently they started a project to help pets find “more sustainable homes”, so they organized Furever Homes for Pets, a fundraiser for the Warwick Valley Humane Society. The goal was to help animals be seen and find families, while raising funds and collecting supplies for the shelter.

When the day came, adults and children shared balloons, photos, makeup and goody bags for their pets. Maddie Schloika and her pup, Sven, from Warwick Wags, were the featured performers showing off Sven’s tricks. The Warwick Valley Humane Society animals have received a lot of attention and some have received requests for adoption. Many people who came for the fundraiser also donated blankets, food and other necessities. In addition to these donations, Furever Homes for Pets was able to raise a total of $1,530 for the Warwick Valley Humane Society.

Look precisely

Pets posed for portraits in front of a fake home made by Valentine Home Builders. The “house” was decorated with trademark pumpkins and other fall decorations. The portraits were taken by Cesar Done of Home Tour Vision, who donated his time and expertise.

Over 40 adorable pets were photographed and entered the pet portrait contest. People vote on a Facebook page, @bhgregreenteam, which pet they felt was the cutest. Winners would receive a gift basket for their furry or feathered friend. These gift baskets were donated by Northern Bear Pet Food & Supplies, Coat Tails Pet Grooming, Track 7 Postal Center and Ellen’s K9 Dog Grooming. A week later, the winners were announced.

First place and the recipient of a pet basket from Northern Bear Pet and Supplies and a dog grooming gift certificate from Ellen’s K9 Grooming was Monty. Second place winner Sully won a pet grooming gift certificate from Coat Tails Pet Grooming. Third place winner, a good feline friend, Freddie, won a 9×9 canvas portrait print courtesy of Track 7 Postal Center!

BHGRE Green Team thanks its sponsors for helping to make this event possible. They also thank their team members and high school volunteers, Ryan McCormick, Melina Garby, Carrington Mask and Keegan Armistead.
