APRIL 9, 2017, SUNDAY ... FIRST OPEN HOUSE FOR 2017ÂÂ
What an amazing and beautiful day for our first open house for 2017! A huge turnout brought wonderful people representing every state in New England and New York! The conversations were amazing and making new friends and seeing old friends is a wonderful gift after such a long winter…all the dogs were well behaved and looked great! Those looking to adopt should please keep in touch with us… periodic emails are a great way to do that… remember that making the right match takes time…we are a rescue … we don’t know what dogs may be coming in and we don’t know when… so patience is appreciated…our sincere thanks for all the cookies…dog and people type…the kind donations of toys, beds, and collars … your support is greatly appreciated. Thank you to Illiano’s Grill, Yantic, CT for the delicious pizza!!!

September 11, 2016 ...PET ROCK FEST 2016, Becker College, Leicester Campus, Leicester, MA.
PETROCKFEST… Lori and Christine had a long day…the turn out for the event was awesome though it started with some pretty bad weather…they survived the micro burst that occurred prior to the start of the event … many popups went flying through the air, ending up destroyed in a heap, and dogs from other rescues ran loose when x-pens were uplifted!ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ Lori and Christine, joined by volunteers Kathy Coon and Sharon Antonelli, were soaked as the rain came down sideways while they tried to hold the popup in place.ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ BUT, in spite of all of this everyone had fun.ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ Newf ambassadors Tallulah, Koda and Rafter enjoyed the downpour! After the sun came out, they were joined by Liz Newell and her rescue Newf Brodie.ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ They handed out a lot of literature … met many people and took in some donations! ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ A very touching and heartfelt part of the event was the opening ceremony where all were reminded NEVER to forget 9/11… fifteen years ago … everyone stopped as the national anthem was sung … facing the flag with hands over hearts. ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ What an amazing day and an amazing event!!! ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ Our thanks to our volunteers for the help, the input, and the great pics and video! ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ Thank you, PETROCKFEST for allowing us to be part of this stupendous day!
