Adopt-A-Dog's Major Fundraiser, Puttin' On The Dog, Sunday, Sept. 23rd, 10:00am - 5:00pm, Roger Sherman Baldwin Park in Greenwich.


The annual “Puttin’ On The Dog” fundraising festival for Adopt-A-Dog is  Sunday, Sept. 23, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Roger Sherman Baldwin Park in Greenwich.

This is Adopt-A-Dog's primary fundraiser.  As those who have attended previously know, this is a truly special event.  Although the focus of the day is on the dog show, with classes such as:

“Best Dressed”
“Best Lap Dog”
“Best Tail Wagger”...

...there are many other attractions including dogs and cats for adoption, various food vendors, craft and sales booths, clowns and entertainers, a silent auction and grab bag booth, etc. 

It is a tremendous day for those who love children and dogs.  Our event is usually the largest in Greenwich, with around 6,000 attending.

This year the event will feature entertainment by Laughing Pizza. If you've never seen them, check them out here.
