The next time you go to a dentist, you could be helping a sheltered animal receive dinner.
The Dental Boutique in Westchase is donating food to the Humane Society of Tampa Bay every time they receive a new patient.
Dr. Andrew Vallo has had a soft spot for animals in shelters ever since adopting his own dog from a shelter in Ohio.
“When we first adopted our dog Sampson he was very underweight and malnourished, he was missing patches of hair,” said Vallo.
Vallo made a pledge, once he opened his own practice, he would find a way to give back.
“When we went to that shelter obviously Sampson wasn’t the only dog and as much as my fiancé would have loved to take every dog in the shelter home obviously it wasn’t feasible,” said Vallo.
