New Canaan Dog Days 

May 31, 2014 01:06AM

New Canaan Dog Days, hosted by Village Critter Outfitters and Aetheria Relaxation Spa, will take place June 8 from 12-3pm in New Canaan. The event will benefit PAWS and STARelief.  The day will include a parade, dog contests, exhibits, agility and obstacle courses, pet and human fashion contests, rescues and shelters and a pet food and supply drive.

New Canaan Dog Days was established in 2009 as an annual family-friendly FUN-raiser to raise awareness and donations for local animal charities. Hosted and sponsored by Village Critter Outfitter, a New Canaan retailer devoted to holistic pet wellness and charitable animal causes, New Canaan Dog Days is a celebration of the unconditional love our four-legged family members contribute to the lives of their human companions. The event will feature exhibitors offering an array of information about the care of pets, fun contests and activities, a cooling station to keep pets hydrated and more.

PAWS is a nonprofit dedicated to finding good homes for adoptable dogs and cats and providing community resources and education throughout southern Fairfield County. STARelief is a group of volunteers dedicated to keeping pets and families together during hard financial times. Attendees are asked to bring a donation of pet food and/or supplies to benefit both organizations.
