DETAILS: “For the Love of Dogs” is a fundraiser for Animals for Adoption. The will feature dog-agility games, food, music, prizes and adoption opportunities. Animals for Adoption is a not-for-profit that has rescued and placed hundreds of dogs. Dog-training games and demonstrations will be led by trainers Polly Kaplan and Karen Knoll. Attendees can pay whatever they can to attend the event. Funds are being raised to pay for the emergency purchase of a new well, after the old one broke down earlier this year, requiring an unexpected outlay of $8,000. Funds will also be directed to Animal for Adoption’s program with Green Chimneys, where shelter dogs interact with special needs children.
