Do you love dogs? Do you live in the New York area? Well, than you need to meet our good friends at Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue!
On Sunday, Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue hosted one heck of a festival, and we here at PetPlus are grateful to have been invited. This festival had everything you (and your dog!) could possibly want.
The fair was chock full of crafts and gourmet snacks – both for people and pups alike – as well as events like:
- A pit bull kissing booth from Mr. Bones and Co.
- An agility course to test your dog’s mettle with Sarah Westcott and the Doggie Academy
- A trainer (Katie McCue) doling out handy pet care tips
- A personalized dog dish with your pooch’s paw print courtesy of Baked in Brooklyn
- A free caricature for every dog in attendance by comic book artist Andy Pratt
- A raffle full of great prizes like a Gucci scarf or two tickets to see Kelly and Michael
And with booths from vendors all across NYC, there was something for everybody. Shake Shack was there handing out special doggy ice cream treats called “pooch-inis,” that the dogs were going bananas over.
For the people on the other end of the leash, Sunday Gravy was dishing out some delicious sandwiches just like momma used to make. And the Two Moon Art House & Cafe brought their delicious cookies, just in case the people were getting jealous seeing their pooches get all the goodies. Not to mention the $4 beers provided by Smuttynose Brewery ($3 of which went right back to the shelter).
There were also some fantastic musical guests pumping out the jams and getting people ready for a day of doggy fun. Everything from the folky tunes of Willy Gantrim and Yard Sale to the high energy beats of the Marafanyi Drum Dance and Song, there was something for everybody.
If you missed the fun festivities, there is always next year. And to help you get over having missed one of the most fun Sundays in recent memory, you can use the offer code “Badass” to get a free month of PetPlus – no strings attached.
