Last weekend, at the Northern Indiana Pet Expo, NOOTERS Club® partnered with H.O.P.E. for Animals spay and neuter clinic of Fort Wayne, IN. Our goal: Encourage more people to get their pets spayed and neutered.
H.O.P.E for Animals offered special incentives on pre-paid spay and neuter services while NOOTERS Club® gave free t-shirts to the first 10 pet owners taking advantage of the offer. NOOTERS Club® also donated $2 from each tank top, t-shirt and nightshirt sold to H.O.P.E. for Animals.
Community Outreach & Volunteer Coordinator for H.O.P.E. for Animals, Tyna Reiter, worked with NOOTERS Club® on the promotion. Tyna and her team were phenomenal and made everything so easy.
We have never been asked so many times if we needed help – setting up and putting everything away at the end. Thank you, Tyna and everyone at the H.O.P.E. for Animals booth!
We hope to work with H.O.P.E. again in the future!
In the meantime, we are always looking for spay neuter clinics interested in partnering with NOOTERS Club®. If your group is interested in events to raise money or awareness for pet spay and neuter, please contact Lindaw@nootersclub.org.
This was our first time at the Northern Indiana Pet Expo, presented by the Allen County SPCA.
What stands out most about our visit? How NICE everyone is in Fort Wayne! Not sure if it’s the healthy country air or beautiful blue skies.
But we have never felt so welcome – at the Expo – and in Fort Wayne in general.
- In traffic – people actually let you go first!
- At the lovely Allen County War Memorial Coliseum – where the parking lot attendants are happy to see you!
- At the fabulous CASA restaurant across Parnell Street from the Coliseum – best food and service ever! (To anyone going to Fort Wayne – I highly recommend!)
- At shopping centers – where strangers actually say hello!
- At the local Tuesday Morning where we went for gifts to take home – they called Michigan stores for us!
- And, of course, at the Northern Indiana Pet Expo — where fellow pet lovers stopped at our booth to just say hello or to go home with some of our whimsical NOOTERS Club® apparel!
What is so special about the people of Fort Wayne? Jessica Henry of the Allen County SPCA said it’s good old fashioned “Hoosier Hospitality.”
All I know is that I went home with a smile on my face and feeling like I had just spent a weekend surrounded by good friends.
I simply can’t wait to go back!

June 18-19, 2016, NOOTERS Club® will be at the Northern Indiana Pet Expo in Fort Wayne. This is our first time participating in this expo, so we are very excited! The Expo is organized by the local Allen County SPCA so all the proceeds from the Expo go to help the animals. So we are super excited!
In fact, we are so excited about our trip to Fort Wayne, that we will give everyone bringing a copy of this blog with them to the Expo, a FREE DOG OR CAT NOOTERS Club® WINDOW DECAL WITH ANY PURCHASE. BE SURE THAT YOU PRESENT YOUR BLOG COPY BEFORE YOU MAKE YOUR PURCHASE.
