Best Of 2019

Aaron Burkett

And he’s still one of the busiest, too. Burkett’s been handling Ybor City and Heights area jobs of pretty much every size longer than most of us have been in steady relationships. The quality of the work, reasonable prices and trustworthiness are exactly why you’ll want to get on his calendar once you know that a job outside of your own ability needs to be handled.

Best Adoption Initiative

Friends Of Strays’ Doggy Days Out

Now this is a million-dollar idea. St. Petersburg’s Friends of Strays unlocked a genius concept by allowing locals to take adoptable pets out for the day, be to rack up some good karma or give the pup a test drive before giving them a forever home. Although waived adoption fees can be helpful to clear the shelters, getting dogs out from behind cages keeps animals in good spirits and raises awareness about the number of strays needing a home. Doggy Days Out is also quite dangerous for impulsive pet owners who just can’t say no — either way, it’s a win for Friends of Strays. friendsofstrays.org
