Multi-Dog Rescue Adoption Event at Coxe & Graziano Set for Saturday, July 11

Our friends at Coxe & Graziano Funeral Home have graciously offered their parking lot for a dog adoption event on Saturday, July 11.

Jennifer Graziano

Jennifer Graziano of Coxe & Graziano funeral home at 134 Hamilton Ave in Greenwich.

The Grazianos — Jennifer and her dad Vincent and brother, Vincent Jr — have done a superb job renovating the facility at 134 Hamilton Ave and mentioned that they are dog lovers!

Non-profit dog rescue groups participating in the event in the Coxe & Graziano parking lot, include Brian and Kristen from Adopt-A-Dog, Penny from Northwind Kennels, Tina Zinn Gonzalez from Passionworks Rescue, Lisa from Rising Rin Dove, Heather Scutti from STAR Relief and Tina Aronson Cat Assistance (Yes, they rescue dogs too!)

You might even be able to step inside the renovated funeral home for a look. They have done a beautiful job revamping the facility.


Harley from Northwind! Kennels is very sweet with everyone he meets. Come meet him at Coxe & Graziano on Saturday, July 11 between 11am and 2:00pm.

Christian Gray

Christian Grey is a gentle 1-1/2 year old Pit/Lab mix who is also a member of the Southern Tails Group up from Alabama.


Ducky was named after his unique webbed feet. He is a great little boy.

Our friend Tina Aronson  in Greenwich who has a great track record placing dogs dogs pulled from Bridgeport and Mt. Vernon municipal shelters, and is now rescuing dogs from the New York City ACC euthanasia list will be at the event.


This is Ducky, a 7 month old puppy available through Cat Assistance.

Tina will bring Ducky, who is a sweet, happy-go-lucky 7-month-old pit puppy she pulled from the NYC Animal  Control after he was dumped by his owner. She named him Ducky for his webbed feet, which make him unique and extra special! Tina tells us Ducky is very sweet and playful, but could some puppy training as he can be a tad bit mouthy (easy to fix).

Ducky plays well with other dogs and walks beautifully on the leash. He is a real cutie, weighing in at 40 lbs, and will grow to be a big boy. Ducky is  neutered and fully vetted. Come meet Ducky on July 11 between 11:00am and 2:00pm.

Contact for application for Ducky in advance.

Even if you’re not ready to adopt a new member of your family, this is a terrific group of folks dedicated to rescuing dogs (and cats) and you might make a connection for future, or talk about possibly fostering.  So please feel free to stop by.

Watch Greenwich Free Press this week for more information on the event and photos of some of the dogs you will have a chance to meet on July 11 at Coxe & Graziano at 134 Hamilton Ave on Saturday July 11, 11:00am til 2:00pm.


UPDATE: Remember Bonnie and Clyde? Both found great homes and Bonnie’s adoptive family report that she is doing well indeed. She has put on some weight and is responding to lots of love.
