Puttin’ On The Dog
Thank you for another pawsitively awesome Puttin’ on the Dog & Cats Too! We were able to raise close to $100,000 this year! All funds raised will go toward Adopt-A-Dog’s mission to save, socialize and secure loving homes for unwanted or abandoned dogs.
This past Sunday, September 18th, was our 29th annual Puttin’ on the Dog & Cats Too Festival! This annual festival doubles as a fundraiser for Adopt-A-Dog and an adoption event for multiple shelters in the surrounding area. The event would not have gone as smoothly as it did if it wasn’t for the devoted Puttin’ on the Dog & Cats Too committee, our amazing volunteers and of course the hard working staff of Adopt-A-Dog.
At 10am the gates opened and the crowds started pouring in, one cute dog after the next. With over 35 vendors, our competition class rings, dog parades and demonstrations from the Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation, K9 Units from the surrounding area and Port Chester obedience there was never a dull moment.
By closing time at 4:30, thousands of dogs and dog parents had walked through Roger Sherman Baldwin Park, enjoying everything Puttin’ on the Dog & Cats Too had to offer. The weather held out and it turned out to be a great day. And even better news; all 6 of our dogs that attended the event have received adoption applications! We can’t wait to see what next year brings!
We want to thank all of our event sponsors; Pet Pantry Warehouse, Serendipity, H/3 Foundation, VCA Animal Hospitals, Prai Beauty, Carriage House Motor Cars, Tischman Pets Photography, Reckson, Blue Buffalo, Joey B’s, Town of Greenwich Parks and Recreation, Anderson Electric & Santaguida Sanitation. We could not do this year after year without all of your support.
Thank you everyone for coming out to support a good cause and celebrating pets and the people who love them!
