PIER 6 DOG RUN MAKEOVER

The hard work of community minded dog owners made it possible to replace the pink stones in the park with spanking brand new, bleed-free ones.

HALLOWEEN 

Brooklyn dogs and their humans really know how to celebrate Halloween. Luckily, the hurricane didn’t put a damper on the borough’s annual festivities including the Great Pupkin in Fort Greene Park.

ALTRUISTIC DOG COMMUNITY

The Brooklyn dog community is made up of kind, quirky, and incredibly altruistic individuals and organizations.  From the work of rescue groups to the volunteer powered ASPCA Boarding Facility for Hurricane Sandy pets and Brooklyn Bark’s food pantry, we definitely feel the love.

  1. Oh snap, I hope I get to catch the Great Pupkin next year!

  2. Looks like good fun! We always go to the Promenade Halloween parade since it’s closer but we need to add this to our rounds next year.
