Event Hosts & Sponsors
The inaugural My Furry Valentine Super Adoption event was created and funded by our main event sponsors. They’re all returning to help make MFV 2014 even bigger and better. The main event will be hosted at the flexi USA distribution facility in West Chester, Ohio. Every adopted pet will go home with a free goody bag and a free alcott collar and leash!
Alcott is on a mission to turn ordinary dog walking into an extraordinary adventure! Eventually, the Alcott brand will include an entire line of travel related pet gear but for now you can read all about him in “Alcott Afoot”… a lovely, inspiring story about what happens when you turn the ordinary into the extraordinary, like when a walk becomes an adventure. That’s exactly what Alcott lives for, and oh what an adventure he had traveling the globe with his best friend Elsa. Along the way he learned some important things about himself, and about life.
Alcott will be attending My Furry Valentine so be sure to stop by and take a picture with him!
phoDOGrapher is a Cincinnati-based pet photography studio specializing in candid portraits of pets and their people. Carolyn Evans of phoDOGrapher has had the pleasure of photographing Cincinnati’s furry friends for more than a decade. That’s 53 in dog years! When Carolyn isn’t behind the lens, she devotes much of her time to helping homeless animals. She is an advocate for every animal and their welfare. Carolyn utilizes the power of photography to capture the spirit of animals to help tell their story. She is an ardent supporter of the No-Kill movement and an active member of HeARTs Speak, a united group of artists that aim to break down the myth that animals from rescues and shelters are inferior.
Carolyn is the creator of the My Furry Valentine Super Adoption in Cincinnati and is the primary event coordinator. Every adopted animal will be scheduled for a My Furry Valentine mini-session and go home with a coupon for a discounted photography session with phoDOGrapher!

Step inside the HocusFocus Photobooth, press the button, smile, laugh, kiss, bark like a dog, make silly faces – what happens behind the curtain, stays behind the curtain! Unless of course, you choose to show off the souvenir photo you’ll take home with you from My Furry Valentine. Your complimentary photo strip, reminiscent of those old time photo booths of the good old days you might recall from amusements parks and carnivals, will help you remember your day at Cincinnati’s Super Adoption.
