It’s almost here! The 28th annual Puttin’ on the Dog fundraiser in Roger Sherman Baldwin Park is just two weeks away.

The fun-filled day will showcase multiple dog competitions with celebrity judges, live music, vendors and food for kids and adults. The fun and games will take place at Roger Sherman Baldwin Park in Greenwich.

Little Pub patioThe folks at Little Pub in Cos Cob, dog lovers themselves, have offered to kick-off Adopt-A-Dog’s annual festival and major fundraiser for the year on Tuesday, Sept 15 by donating 10% of the entire day’s proceeds to Adopt-A-Dog.

The restaurant opens for lunch at 11:30am. Dinner is served until 10:00pm.

There may even be a few adoptable dogs to meet outside on the patio, though nowadays it’s easy find the perfect rescue dog at Adopt-A-Dog, and you can fill out your application in advance online.

Everyone loves the food at Little Pub.

Menu favorites include Scarpelli’s Fundido, made with sausage from the longtime secret family recipe at Scarpelli’s on Bible Street, the poutine made with crispy french fries, cheddar jack, chopped bacon, roasted chicken gravy, and, of course the Little Pub burger.

In fact, there are a dozen Little Pub burger variations, including the Steakhouse, which is a burger with thick bacon, caramelized onions, cheddar and steakhouse mayo.

Did you know, Little Pub recently won best burger from Moffly Media’s Best of Greenwich contest.

Clear the Shelters

Recently the shelter changed its adoption procedure, adding an online application, offering the possibility of same-day adoptions, and altering the adoption fee policy so that the fees are optional. The adoption rate has soared, which is fantastic. At the #CleartheShelter event in August, there were 21 adoptions. Executive director Kristen Rice at one point shouted, ‘We’re running out of dogs!’ She was kidding, but the empty kennels were quite a sight. Credit: Leslie Yager

Little Pub is located in Cos Cob at 531 East Putnam Ave.

Adopt a Dog is located at 23 Cox Ave, in Armonk (head up Riversville Rd and just over the town line). Tel. (914) 273.1674
