9:00 AM to 1:00 PM
Location: Spring Grove Cemetery & Arboretum
Once again the weather is not cooperating with our event schedule.
We have made the decision to cancel the Dog Day Event for Sunday, June 23rd. Responsible pet owners are still welcome to walk their dogs in the cemetery for this ONE day ONLY, however, the scheduled events will not take place.
Historic Spring Grove Cemetery and Arboretum is excited to present our 12th Annual Dog Day of Summer Event on Sunday, June 23, 2019. For 364 days of the year the cemetery does not permit dog owners to share the beauty of Spring Grove with their pets. However, on this ONE day only, responsible pet owners are invited to come and spend the entire day at the cemetery with their four legged buddies. Explore over 45 miles of paved roads throughout the 400+ developed acres of the park.
If you have lost a four legged loved one, please plan to attend our Remembrance Service honoring your pet(s). You are encouraged to bring photos of your pet(s) to use when decorating white luminary bags. The bags will be set around the Rose Garden/Gazebo area. The Remembrance Service will begin at NOON in the Rose Garden.
NEW - Fred's Mission and 2nd Hand Paws will be on site with dogs who need a forever home. We ask that you bring an item on their Wish List to participate in this event :
wire crates, leashes, collars, blankets, treats and toys of any kind, puppy pads, Greenies pill pockets chicken, True chews chicken, Chlorox bleach bottles, clorox cleaner + bleach, Travel crates, dog beds, Firehose toys, Kong toys, garbage bags, and most of all plastic bags from grocery.
Some of our many events between 9A - 1P include Gift Basket Raffle / Guess the Treats contest / organized Dogwood Trail Walk (at 10A) / Pet Photo Keepsakes / Animal Adoptions / and LUAU PICNIC WITH YOUR POOCH - We will have picnic tables and chairs set up for you to enjoy a hot off the grill concession or bring your own picnic lunch. Concessions will be available between 11A - 1P (for a nominal charge with proceeds to dog rescue organization).
This is a Free event for the entire family. ALL PETS are required to be registered at the information tent.
