“Sandi’s Holiday Tail” Will Help Cats & Dogs find Homes for the Holidays!

West Palm Beach, FL (December 1, 2017) Sandi, the world’s ONLY 600-ton sand tree, is back with quite the holiday “tail” to tell! A beloved South Florida holiday tradition, her fans eagerly anticipated her 35 feet of sculpted perfection and the fun-filled kingdom of Sandi Land. Sandi’s dazzling 2017 debut at the November 30 Clematis by Night Tree Lighting, featured a new component this year and Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League couldn’t be happier!

During the holiday tree lighting, Sandi revealed a big, new personality, and the next chapter in her story, “Sandi’s Holiday Tail.” Since returning to her West Palm Beach home, Sandi has fallen in love, and added to her family with a Rescue Dog from Peggy Adams named Duke!  This 12-foot-high, 50-ton sand sculpture was revealed on Thursday night to the delight of the thousands in attendance.  Duke will sit next to Sandi keeping a watchful eye on her all month long; proudly wearing his Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League ADOPT ME vest.

All of Sandi Land is pet themed this year with cats, dogs, puppies, and  kittens throughout the entire Downtown Waterfront through December.   Rich Anderson, Executive Director/CEO of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, said, “We are thrilled we were chosen to partner with the City of West Palm Beach on this annual holiday tradition.  We love the message the City and Sandi are promoting – Adopt Don’t Shop for Pets – and it fits perfectly with the League’s Mission.”  Anderson continued with, “We hope this added exposure will help many area shelter pets find their forever family during the holidays.”

Sandi’s 2017 adventure includes an all-out effort to assist in the adoption of her furry friends in Palm Beach County. In partnership with several local rescue organizations, Sandi will give holiday cheer to pets too. Word on the street is that cats and dogs will be “ho, ho, home” for the holidays!
