“Every summer I like to do something different for our pet professional networking events, last year we had a riverboat cruise out of Riverhead in which we had a blast and our guests learned about the native wildlife along the way. This year we will be enjoying the gorgeous countryside at a local vineyard, sampling wines, networking, noshing on hors d’oeuvres and learning on a private tour of the horse rescue and seeing all the incredible work they do there,” said Nancy E. Hassel, founder and President of American Pet Professionals. “We are also giving back by donating a portion of the proceeds to the rescue so they can continue doing the work they do.”
Guests can look forward to the following at the event: wine tastings & hors d’oeuvres; live music; private networking area; tour of the Horse Rescue (visit and learn about the 30 gorgeous horses on the property) exclusively by owner of Sharon Levine; a goody bag for each pet professional attendee and more!
This is a networking event, so guests are asked to bring up-to-date business cards, get ready to meet new pet professionals and learn how they can help each other, have a great time celebrating the summer, the pet industry and learning more about wine and horses!
