Local dog rescue, Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue, is hosting a fundraising sidewalk sale this Saturday, July 19th from 11am to 4pm outside of the Shoe Market at N. 6th St and Bedford Ave. Badass Couture will feature a curated selection of vintage and gently-used clothing, Badass merchandise, and of course adorable and adoptable doggies. All proceeds go towards the rescue, who rescue dogs from high-kill shelters in the southern U.S. and get them adopted into loving, New York homes.
Our friends at Empire of the Dog, who have helped my little mutt D become a more refined and less-barky lady, have pulled together super important Summer Safety Tips so you can rest assured your premium pooch will be as cool as he looks during the warmer months.
Summer is here! And while you’re putting condiments on your hot dog, your REAL hot dog may be in harms way. Be aware of the danger that high heat and outdoor environments can have on your dog.
Follow this checklist to ensure summer safety for you and your dog: Continue reading

Win a Paul Richard Custom Drip Pet Portrait – The Neighborhood Vet Fundraiser at Pine Box Rock Shop Tomorrow (5/17)
You know why we all get along as Greenpointers? Because when we put our human problems aside – we all LOVE animals – no matter how tight their jeans are or how much they pay for a latte. If they hail from Kansas or Ohio or were born and raised “native” Greenpointers – we can’t help but accept and tolerate them for all their quirks and differences.
This Saturday at 8pm, Pine Box Rock Shop (12 Grattan St) is hosting a fundraiser for The Neighborhood Vet – Dr. Natara L. Loose, who is soon to open a veterinary clinic in Bushwick. There will be lots of puppy love, great music and a silent art auction with works by infamous Greenpoint artists (& animal lovers) Francis Christie (tfuk) & Paul Richard, plus many many more items.
One particular item I am going to bid on is a 2′ x 3′ Custom Drip Pet Portrait by Paul Richard of my Chiwiener “D”! See you there!
If your dog (ahem or you) are looking for some fun and positive socializing, then head over to McGolrick Park Dog Run this Saturday from 11:30am-12:30pm for Doggie Playgroup! All breeds and ages are welcome, but there is a size/weight limit – under 20lb. Oh and don’t bring any bitches in heat. All dogs must be spayed/neutered, up to date on shots and not aggressive.

Today from 1-4pm, ASPCA is hosting this event for pets in need of homes at the House of Vans (25 Franklin St).
Spring is officially here and what could be better than a puppy/kitten party to celebrate your re-birth into the outdoor world. Even if you can’t adopt it’ll be worth it just to hang out with (I’ll say it again) PUPPIES AND KITTENS.
There will also be food from Yeah Dawg and Calexico, drinks, a photo booth, and face painting. And if you are looking to adopt, ASPCA will be there to answer all your questions.
Alls everyone talks about these days in Greenpoint (aside from the $10 lattes) are the rent hikes that leave residents and businesses with no other option than to move out or close-up shop.
“It’s everybody’s story,” Rob Maher of Unleash said after making the decision to close his Franklin St boarding and daycare facility after serving the community for 5 years. When his lease option came up for renewal, the new price his landlord offered was “not an option to renew,” he said.
Now he must find homes for 6 rescue dogs. Continue reading
Dog Habitat, a local rescue group, just gave us the heads up that they have a cat and dog in need in need of good homes, either via adoptees or fosters.
