The fun event took place June 11 from noon to 5 p.m. in Downtown Fort Pierce. Together, Humane Society of St. Lucie County villagers and friends – both two-legged and four-legged – walked from one stop to another, where they received one free Motorworks beer at each participating establishment along the way.

There were competitions at each establishment. Participants were awarded a lei and in the end, Christine Iannotti had gathered the most leis. She won a gift certificate to Revive Therapy in Port St. Lucie.

Between the ticket sales and raffle ticket sales for the Yeti of Cheer, the Pup Crawl raised more than $3,000 for the homeless animals residing at the Humane Society of St. Lucie County.

The participating bars were Cobb’s Landing, Pickled Restaurant and Bar, Taco Dive, Pierced Ciderworks and 2nd Street Bistro. The event was made possible thanks to Motorworks Brewing. Organizers offered words of thanks and said they were so grateful for their community partners.

Sheila Moncada, brand manager at Motorworks Brewing, agreed.

“Great event,” she said. “(We) really appreciate the support of the other pubs and restaurants that participated. A big thank you to Cobb’s Landing for letting us host the event. Can’t wait to do it again in October!”

The Humane Society of St. Lucie County is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing compassionate care and safe shelter for homeless animals and education to the community on responsible pet ownership.
