■ Pictures of you with your pet by a professional photographer. Tarrah Wellington Photography will be taking photographs to share on social media.

“It is an absolute honor to have the opportunity to collaborate with the Cultural Center of Ponte Vedra Beach on a community-driven project that will benefit our youth’s exposure to arts and culture,” said Dr. Carla Rodrigues, of Pawsitive Healing-Veterinary Rehabilitation.

CCPVB President and Executive Director Donna Guzzo said, “Partnering with Pawsitive Healing Clinic has been phenomenal to have visibility in the San Marco area of Duval County as we prepare to expand more services to the Jacksonville area. We have the clientele that can benefit from Dr. Rodriguez’s expertise as their pets get older or need alternative options. We are expecting folks from Duval and St. Johns to attend the event. It will be a family-pet-fun atmosphere to connect, engage and experience. Our mission is to bring the arts to our community. This is exactly what we are doing. Success is imminent!”
