Mulligan, every golfer knows the term.. it's the word used when a player gets a second chance and when a dog gets adopted from a shelter, that dog gets a second chance at life.
Last month in Greenwich, Adoptadog held a great event called Puttin' on the Dog, several dogs got a mulligan and now have new forever homes and loving families.
As a groomer I often meet dogs that were rescued from a shelter. Sometimes the owner tells me right away, sometimes I learn about the adoption only after discussing the dog and the grooming experience we had just completed and sometimes it's when I hear the new pet's name is Mulligan; that always brings a smile to my face.
On Oct. 6 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., PAWS (pet animal welfare society) is hosting another opportunity to enjoy a great family day that centers around our pets. Paws in the Park is being held at Taylor Farm Park in Norwalk.
There will be raffles, prizes, free gifts, music, games and adoptable pets on hand. Join us for lots of fun and check out the dogs and cats looking for a family to love.
The staff of The Hairy Barker will be on hand to answer your questions and help you with your pet. For more information about PAWS and this event go to the PAWS website. Stop by our table and say hello and pick up a free gift.
