Local Business No Longer Welcome at Loews's Surf Dog Competition in Imperial Beach

Dear Locals, Customers and Friends,

We regret to inform you that IB Pet will not have a booth at the Loew's Coronado Bay Surf Dog Competition this year for the first time since 2009! The event is now being sponsored by Petco Unleashed and Loews has denied our request to attend.  Though we hope this partnership with Petco brings more money to the ASPCA we are very disappointed that we will not be a vendor this year.  Surf Dog is the only big "pet" event in Imperial Beach and we look forward to it each year.  Surf Dog day is always a busy day for us at IB Pet.  Without our attendance at the event visitors won't know to come see us.  We have supported Loews for years as they are a pet friendly hotel/resort just up the road from us and this news is very disheartening to us, our staff and our local customers!

We'd like to take this opportunity to do some good and to help promote supporting local businesses. We are having IB Pet SUPPORT LOCAL t-shirts made for the Surf Dog event on June 22nd.  The shirts are $20 each and $5 of each shirt sold will be donated to our local non-profit pet rescue groups; PAWS and CARES in Coronado.  Shirts will be ready for pick up at IB Pet June 17th but you may pay for your shirt now at IB Pet.

We hope to see everyone in BLUE at Surf Dog this year!
Take care!
