Puttin' on the Dog

  • Roger Sherman Baldwin Park Arch St Greenwich, CT, 06830 United States (map)

Our Puttin' on the Dog Adoptions Festival is an annual event that highlights the important work that Adopt-A-Dog does. 2015 will yet again provide an opportunity to show off the amazing dogs and cats that are available for adoption, raise awareness of the shelter, and extend humane education.

Puttin' on the Dog hopes to attract around 6,000 local community members from both Connecticut and New York. It gives dogs and cats the opportunity to find wonderful, caring homes. The event is a fantastic family day and Adopt-A-Dog's single biggest fundraiser. During the event, a silent auction and raffle are held in order to raise money for rescue initiatives. This money raised at the event goes towards the overall care of the dogs and cats at the shelter. 

"We're really looking forward to all of the activities! We will have many dogs and cats available for adoption. The public can register their own dog to enter various competitions, which are for-fun dog shows held throughout the day with categories including best kisser, best lap dog, aged to perfection, best costume and more. There will be live music by Billy & The Showman, vendors selling pet-related items, great food, a children's play area, and much, much more!" Kristen Rice, Adopt-A-Dog's Executive Director stated. "We want this to be fun for everyone involved, but with the clear message that its about the animals finding forever homes."

Community members are encouraged to bring their pets along. The Puttin' on the Dog Adoptions Festival is a fantastic way to spend the day and support a great cause!

Be sure to stop by the Pet Pantry Pavilion, hosted by our presenting sponsor, Pet Pantry Warehouse. This pavilion will provide pet product demonstrations, training tips and advice, nutrition and educational information, generous free samples and attractive merchandise for your pooch.
