Release the hounds: An Easter egg hunt for dogs

Dogs love eggs, but they're lousy at Easter Egg hunts. Go figure. Good thing the Easter Bunny's coming to the Humane Society of Tampa Bay to help 'em out (and to take cute photos with 'em). They'll also have an easter egg hunt for the humans (mostly the little ones, of course!) and crafts for kids. And, hey, while you're there, why not adopt a dog or cat... or a rabbit? Not the Easter Bunny, though. That's just wrong.

Visit the bunny petting pen (and please, please, please don't buy a pet store rabbit or duck or chick for Easter, thank you!) eat some cotton candy, play some games — basically, celebrate animals and Easter — then grab some lunch from the grill. 

Dogs hunt at 11:30 a.m., noon, noon-thirty, 1 p.m. and 2 p.m.; the three top treat-finding dogs get prizes (hopefully more treats, amirite, pups?) Kids will hunt for goodies between 11 a.m. and noon — and do crafts — at the Cat Lanai and Rabbit Resort.
