It was a glorious day to be in the park today at our National Puppy Day celebration. Over 50 pups showed up to get their photos taken with their human companions in one of our park hearts.
The park was cheerfully populated, respecting social distancing of course, by kids and seniors alike, neighbors, friends, and a large handful of public officials - all gathered to celebrate our local canines.
Jack from Pet Wants SOMA left the shop and his cats to divvy out treats for the pups and St. Hubert's Animal Shelter was on hand to provide take away information on keeping our pets safe and healthy. Jennifer Gregory from the shelter remarked on how nice it was to see a number of St. Hubert's orphans frolicking happily with their new families.
This event's success was the result of hard work by our Steering Committee Members, especially the Leads on this particular event, Jen Steig and Debi Rednik. We are also always grateful for our partnership with the village in coordinating this event and others.
We look forward to reprising our puppy park day next March. In the meantime, stay tuned for news on our April Event!
