May 2017 Events

May has started off chilly and wet but we are looking forward to better weather days ahead!  In addition to our usual meet and greets in Clinton, Glastonbury, West Hartford and Lisbon, we have 2 special meet and greets this month.  One will be held at the Southbury Pet Valu on May 7th from 12pm until 2pm, and for the very first time, we will have a meet and greet at the New Britain Bees Stadium on Saturday May 13th from 5pm until 6:30pm.  Stop by with your hounds and hang out with us.  

On Sunday May 21st we will have a table at the Colchester Spring Bark for the Park from 10am until 1pm.  This event helps support the local dog park and will feature a lucky duck egg hunt, many vendors, may baskets and a blessing of the hounds  


Join us for our biggest fundraiser of the year at on June 24th from 6pm until 9pm at Arrigoni Winery in Portland CT.  Along with several wines to taste, there will be great food, raffles, a teacup auction not to mention lots of fun at the hooman only event.  Arrigoni has a gorgeous patio and covered pavilion in case of inclement weather.  Tickets will be $30 in advance and $35 at the door.  Stay tuned for more details.
