Join Florida Heart Research Institute’s Bark for Your Heart for a happier, less stressful life! Did you know that research has shown the calming effects of pets and that the loyalty and love pets display can reduce stress, anxiety, depression and loneliness in their owners and increase their sense of well-being and self-esteem. Enjoy the benefits of a morning of fun festivities with your pet and other pet lovers! The fun begins at 8 a.m. as you gather with your four-legged friends to enjoy the array of food and vendor tables. Promptly at 9, the dog bone ribbon will be cut (or chewed) to begin a leisurely stroll through picturesque South Miami. Then take part in various pet and people contests to win prizes. Registration fee is $50 in advance or $65 day of event, for one family and dog, and this includes all the activities, the official t-shirt and dog bandana. Create your own page and compete to be the person who raises the most money!
