The town of Old Saybrook contacted Dog Days before the blizzard of 2015 to help set up an evacuation center for folks with domestic pets. Our 16 ft trailer, full of crates, kennels, blankets, bowls, and emergency fencing- was picked up and placed at the Old Saybrook High School. If there's a storm, and you need to evacuate, Old Saybrook has you covered! Thanks to the ASPCA, Petco, the Stacey Benvenuto and Friends, and ALL of our supporters and volunteers- we can cooperate and loan our assets, keeping our pets and people who love them safe in the storm!
Tonight will be a much quieter night at York Correctional Institute. 6 of their foster dogs left for an adoption event at Old Saybrook's Tractor Supply and found permanent loving families. Congratulations to all the new adoptees! And, not to worry women of York, there are plenty of other dogs waiting to go into foster- those slots fill up quickly!
These are a few of our beautiful puppies who were able to find their forever homes at the Salem 2014 event. Thanks to all the hardworking volunteers- including veterinarian Eric Hurwitt, groomers Kara and Nichole from Groomingtails, fosters Tina and Paul, Best of Everything Gourmet chefs, the Gardner Lake Fire Company (great chili!), the Burnett's for sharing the facility, the Thibealts for being amazing hosts, the Coast Guard Academy for sending cadets, the Days Inn in Old Saybrook for hosting our out of state rescue partners, and Lori Watson, Petco, Stacey Benvenuto and friends, and the ASPCA for their financial support! It sure does take a village!
