Join us for the 9th Annual New Canaan Dog Days of Summer on Sunday, May 6, 2018, from 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm. It's Pet Pantry's fourth consecutive year hosting the "ultimate FUN-raiser for pet lovers and the whole family" at the New Canaan location. Admission is FREE and all event proceeds will support local pet rescue organizations, Adopt-a-Dog and Strays and Others. Last year the event raised $10,000 in proceeds that was split between both beneficiary organizations.
The event continues to evolve annually and will feature the addition of “The Doggie Fun Zone” this year. The fastest dog to run the obstacle course will receive a one year’s supply of Open Farm dog food (openfarmpet.com). A wildlife exhibition presented by The New Canaan Nature Center as well as a K9 Demonstration by the New Canaan Police Department are also new additions this year. On top of these new features, Pet Pantry is bringing back fun elements from prior years. This year's highlights will include the signature "Pet Pantry Bone Bar" filled with top of the line dog treats, chews, and cookies; on-site "adoptions" where well trained balloon dogs walk politely on a faux leash and can be adopted for a $15 donation; and the New Canaan Dog Days Scavenger Hunt, where families work together to figure out clues and complete the hunt. Anyone that solves all of the clues can select a reward from a prize-filled table packed with pet toys and supplies.
Attendees will also enjoy a full afternoon of activities, entertaining classes, contests, exhibitors giveaways, Q&A with professional trainers available for behavioral questions, a meet-and-greet with onsite veterinarians, family and pet portraits with Venture Photography, caricature drawings, art activities for kids including a build your own Birdhouse sponsored by Weed & Duryea and a DJ to keep it festive. Food and beverages will be available for purchase. Event Parking available at the New Canaan Metro-North Railroad Station, 198 Elm Street.

About The Good Dog Foundation
The Good Dog Foundation (Good Dog) was founded as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization in 1998. Good Dog’s mission is to ease human suffering and promote recovery from trauma and stress using animal-assisted therapy services that are recognized as among the most innovative and reliable in the United States. This is accomplished through the use of professionally-trained and supervised volunteer teams who work to aid the healing process in humans and enhance clients’ quality of life.
Join us for Childrens storytime at Pet Pantry New Canaan. In collaboration with the New Canaan Public Library and the New Canaan Nature Center, children will have the opportunity to learn about exotic animals and sit and have reading time with Miss Marie.
Please note, children must be accompanied by a guardian.
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.
