Be a part of the 2nd Annual “Dog Days” at the Galleria at Fort Lauderdale during August

Dog Days

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fl — The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale, recognized as one of South Florida's premier shopping destinations for its sophisticated level of merchandising and ambiance, is seeking pet-focused vendors to be a part of its 2nd annual “Dog Days” series to take place during August.

The Galleria’s Dog Days will kick-off on Wednesday, August 10 with the Forever Homes adoption event from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. This will be a great opportunity for vendors to showcase unique services to mall shoppers, while making connections with other pet-focused businesses and organizations. Pets will be available for adoption via several local pet adoption agencies.

Participating businesses will be supplied with a covered table and two chairs, and may choose to give out samples, coupons and brochures, or offer token gifts and sell merchandise. Additional activities or signage may require prior approval by mall management.

In return for this free opportunity, vendors are asked to donate an item or service valued at $25 or more for our “Fashion Hounds” event on Wednesday, August 17. This event for ultra-stylish pet-lovers will showcase trendy dogs and their owners on the runway, competing for great prizes.

“We are excited for the return of our Dog Days initiative, encouraging shoppers to adopt pets who need a home or to celebrate with their four-legged friends,” said Melissa Milroy, senior marketing manager at The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale. “Last year’s event was a great success, so we look forward to expanding it this year with additional participants and attendees.”

To reserve a space, vendors may contact Brittany Holtz from Goodman Public Relations at (954) 446-0812 or
