Monday, July 1st, 2013

VALPARAISO, IND., July 1, 2013—When Smalls Landscaping’s owners learned they had been named North America’s Landscapers of the Year by Total Landscape Care magazine, they agreed a celebration was in order. They decided to make it even more special by inviting some furry friends along in the form of an adoption event hosted by Lakeshore PAWS.

The event, titled Small’s Bloomin’ BBQ Bash, will be held on Saturday, July 13 (rain date is July 14) from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. at Small’s 12-acre property located at 310 North 325 East in Valparaiso. Attendees can visit with pets available for adoption from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. In addition, guests will enjoy delicious BBQ, Figure Eight beers, music, door prizes, golf cart tours of the grounds, and 10 percent savings on all plants, trees, urns and garden ornaments. In addition, Smalls will donate 10 percent of the day’s sales to Lakeshore PAWS.

“As pet lovers, we’re thrilled to provide a place to bring together prospective pet owners with pets who are in need of a home,” shared Nancy Marshall, who co-owns Smalls Landscaping with her sister, Becky Whitacre.
