FINALLY, a new holiday that makes a lot of sense. East Hampton Town Board‘s stock has just gone up a bit in my book.
Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons will hold Pet Celebration Day on Saturday, May 11 from 10am to noon at the ARF Adoption Center at 90 Daniels Hole Road in Wainscott. The public is invited to bring their dogs (on leashes) and their cats (in carriers) to rub noses with old and new friends, try out the agility course, nosh on treats, and enter contests.
To help ARF celebrate 39 years of caring for animals, the East Hampton Town Board has named May 11, 2013 “ARF day in East Hampton”. Town Councilman Dominick J. Stanzione will be on hand to present the “ARF Day” proclamation.
Sandy Rapp will sing and play her guitar while guests drink coffee donated by Hampton Coffee Company and eat warm Dreesen’s Famous Donuts, made on-site. For the four-legged guest there will be a Freshpet carving station for dogs and cats with free samples of this real food made from fresh ingredients.
ARF is where I got my dog Sally. It’s like dog heaven down there.
