Viewfinder: A Family Pet Expo in East Granby – The Granbys, CT Patch

Here are some photos taken by Susan Glassman of A Family Pet Expo, an event held at East Granby Farms Saturday for Anna Glassman’s Girl Scout Gold Award Project.

The event, an unmitigated success, featured some 13 different, mostly animal-related vendors, including two pet adoption shelters.

Demonstrations, including a police dog from the Farmington Police Department, were also held, as well as dog agility tests, contests and games.

Several applications put submitted to Mary’s Kitty Korner (MKK does not do same-day adoptions) for cats, and some of the adoptable dogs have been asked for.

There were many donations as well; Brooke DePamphilis – pictured front and center – heard about the event and asked that her friends bring donations for Mary’s Kitty Korner for her birthday in lieu of presents.

“I was very impressed that a 17 year old put together this wonderful event,” said Deanne Raymond of Deanne Raymond’s Pet Parade. “Dogs and people are out here today, happy and having a great time. This has been a wonderful way to end the fall.”
