Dog days of summer feature adopt a dog event
The event is coordinated by the Parmelee Steering Committee, local volunteers and the Dog Days Adopt a Shelter Pet in Essex.
Fees vary, but the maximum is $325. Potential adopters will be screened. Families can be pre-approved at DogDays.org.
All dogs have been micro-chipped, spayed or neutered and evaluated by an on-site trainer. On-site medical evaluation will be provided by Drs. Michelle West and Julie Berman of Shoreline Animal Hospital in Clinton.
The event will begin with a blessing of the animals at 10:30 a.m. Aug. 27.
The animals at the event are a small portion of the more than 500 dogs available for adoption in the state.
