PAWS of Greenwich, a new nonprofit and collective of Greenwich area volunteers, is partnering with the Town of Greenwich to promote responsible dog ownership.

On Saturday, December 2 from 10:00 am til 1:00pm at Greenwich Point there will be a “PAWS-itive Patrol” event that coincides with the launch of “dog season” at Greenwich Point.

The event will promote responsible dog ownership by educating pet owners about town laws and regulations, dog licensing, leash laws, and picking up dog waste.

Volunteers will be located near main concession stand. They will share information on town regulations, and distribute regulations for dogs at the beach in winter, dog license cards and dog waste bags.

“We appreciate the efforts of Paws of Greenwich and thank them for their partnership with the Town to provide this education program,” said Joseph Siciliano, Greenwich Director of Parks and Recreation in a release. “It is important for people to know and follow the rules for the safety and enjoyment for all,”

PAWS of Greenwich was launched in March 2017 by Greenwich resident Jessica Del Guercio and her puppy.  The organization is working to revitalize Grass Island
Dog Park and hopes to raise funds for a new dog park in town.
