Day of the Dog Comes to Tallahassee

Tallahassee Nurseries has “let the dogs out” with the announcement of their "Day of the Dog" event.

The event will be held on Saturday, Sept. 12 from 11 a.m.-3 p.m., in hopes of spreading awareness to Tallahassee residents about local animal rescue groups, as well as getting dogs adopted.

Local animal rescue groups that will be involved in Day of the Dog include: Cauzican Care, Gadsden County Humane Society, Last Hope Rescue, Tallahassee Pets Alive, Boxer Rescue and Companion Animal Rescue Endeavor (C.A.R.E.).

Dr. Amy Crutchfield, a veterinarian at Northwood Animal Hospital and member of C.A.R.E explains the pet rescue’s goal for the Day of the Dog event.

"We are bringing all of ours dogs and we hope that everyone coming to the event will leave with one! If not leaving with a dog, maybe leaving with a better understanding," said Dr. Crutchfield.

Crutchfield concluded her statement saying that they are hoping to get the animals out of the shelters, placing them in a home and giving them a second chance.

Day of the Dog will include floral scenery, vendors, live music, art, free snowballs, and of course, adoptable dogs. The event will be held at Tallahassee Nurseries at 2911 Thomasville Rd Tallahassee, Fla., 32303 from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
