September 2017 

It's hard to believe that fall is just around the corner.  In addition to our annual picnic, we have several events in September and we could really use your help!  If you can volunteer a few hours at any of these events, please contact Fran at

First up is Bow Wow Bark In The Park in Bristol, CT.  Join us on September 2nd from 11 am until 3 pm for this day dedicated to educating the public about the misunderstood pitbull.  There will be several fun activities for pups and people!  Check out their Facebook page for more information.

On September 23rd is the K-9 Karnival at the Riverwalk in Shelton, CT.  Help us celebrate responsible dog ownership from 10 am until 4 pm.  There will be vendors, micro-chipping, police dog demonstrations, a costume contest and more!  We can definitely use volunteers for this event as it's a very long day.  Thank you!

Last but not least, our postponed Paint, Sip, Fun fundraiser will be held on September 24th in Lebanon, CT .  Please register in advance on the website.  Cost is $40 per person and we will be painting this really awesome rustic american flag.  Snacks will be provided, please BYOB.  Location details are on the website when you sign up.  Hope to see you there!  Sign up quickly as we must get a minimum of 12 people one week in advance of the event date.
