2015 Top Dog Sponsors
My Furry Valentine would not be possible without the support of local business who are also committed to saving lives in Cincinnati.
PhoDOGrapher, our host and the founder of My Furry Valentine, 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. When not behind the lens, Carolyn devotes much of her time to helping homeless animals. She 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, the Board Secretary of HeARTs Speak, a united group of artists united to break down the myth that animals from rescues and shelters are inferior, and the Board President of My Furry Valentine.
Our Top Dog sponsor, Tri-County Mall, is a 1.3 million square foot, super-regional Mall, with a successful 53-year history of not only providing Cincinnati Shoppers with a convenient, beautiful place to shop, but also a wide range of community events. Tri-County Mall is conveniently located at 11700 Princeton Pike, off of I-275 at exit 42 South, not far from the I-75/275 interchange. The two-level center includes anchor stores such as Macy’s, Dillard’s, and Sears; regional favorites such as Ethan Allen and BJ’s Brewhouse, plus more than 110 specialty retailers. Now owned by SingHaiyi Group Ltd., Tri-County Mall is being re-established as *the* Tri-State Shopping Destination.
My Furry Valentine is overjoyed to again partner with our Top Dog Sponsor, Iams! When Iams was founded in 1946, Paul F. Iams sought out new ways to create premium, quality pet foods that would help give dogs and cats happy, healthy, and long lives. He spent time with breeders and nutritionists and learned the importance of protein and the role of fat in pet food diets. Iams was the first to consider dogs and cats primarily as carnivores, a perception which revolutionized the pet food industry. Paul Iams’ belief that advanced nutrition would help make a substantive difference in the health of pets has become the basis for innovation after innovation. Iams believes the only way to provide the best possible food and pet care products is to know dogs and cats better than anyone else in the industry. They believe that through innovative research and breakthroughs, and by following our unique nutritional philosophy we can enhance the lives of millions of pets around the world.
Cristofoli-Keeling, a majority-women owned marketing communications firm with a passion and dedication to our clients and our furry friends, returns to My Furry Valentine as Public Relations Partner for the third year!

After Carolyn’s tremendous success with the inaugural My Furry Valentine event in 2012, Cristofoli-Keeling began working to generate awareness and build attendance for the annual Mega-Adoption Event. Cristofoli-Keeling is a lean, flexible consortium of marketing specialists, wallowing them to assemble the team that’s just right for any project and brand.
