BarkWorld full of Woofs and Meows

Christine reports on BarkWorld

Little did I know four years ago when I moved from south downtown Miami to north of the Miami River, that I would be feeding stray cats, trapping them, and educating neighbors to get them involved and increase awareness. Then with each passing day as I walked the neighborhood looking for other stray cats, I discovered abandoned dogs in downtown Miami. The situation was getting worse, not better. The more I delved into the world of homeless pets, the more I felt compelled to make a difference.  Hence, Pawsitively Humane, Inc was born as a local effort to get to the root of the problem.

So instead of vacations, I now attend conferences to combine learning, networking, and a little fun.  Last week I attended my second conference for the year.  I am excited to report about my experience at BarkWorld, a national social media pet conference.

Here I had the opportunity as a feral cat expert and blogger for Riverfront Cats and founder of Pawsitively Humane, Inc to meet a number of pet related companies that are joining forces with bloggers to help pets nationwide with a number of  pet-related issues.

Hmm I wonder if my t-shirt had any influence?
 Some of the major companies and small exhibitors I had the chance to meet and have solid discussions with include PetCareRx, Petco, Pet360,, (pet insurance),, Life & Dog Magazine, Iams Pet food, Through a Dog's Ears, and Bayer Health Care (for animals).

There's so much to share about the work and partnerships between these companies, the bloggers and communities that  I decided to share highlights in upcoming  posts.  So stay tuned!  Along the way we'll host a giveaway contest.
