Mark Your Calendar for Animal Awareness Day!

Save the date!

Branford Compassion Club will host its annual Animal Awareness Day, featuring the Blessing of the Animals, Sunday, October 6, 2019, rain or shine, on the Branford Green from 12 noon to – 4 p.m.

We had a great time last year and had much positive feedback. We realize the event could not have happened without the generosity and support of our sponsors, vendors and nonprofit and rescue groups who brought their talents and compassion for animals to the Green so we are extremely grateful to all of our supporters in the local community. We hope you will join us!  We will be looking for sponsors, vendors of all types, as well as rescue groups – if you know anyone who would like to become a sponsor, or would like to rent table/booth space, please have them contact me directly.

Spread the word about this celebration of the furry, feathered, scaly and finned members of our families – a Petoctoberfest of music, food, bake sale, special kids’ activities, surprises, education and awareness and just plain FUN for all.

Monetary donations and/or donations of unopened canned (pate) and dry cat food can be dropped off at the Branford Compassion Club Feline Rescue and Adoption Center, 2037 Foxon Road in North Branford, on Saturday, October 20 between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.
