Bring your dog down for a special dog day afternoon!
Hester Street Fair is excited to bring Dog Day back to the Lower East Side and Seward Park community. On Saturday, May 12th, we’re celebrating humankind’s best friend and anyone who loves, owns, feeds, grooms, plays, walks, and cares for the pups of this city.
For those without a pooch to call their own, Social Tees NYC will be hosting adoptions of rescue dogs looking for a home to call their own. We’ll also have the Farmer’s Dog team on hand with Michelin Star worthy doggy dinners for your little bud, School for The Dogs giving training demonstrations, Austin Blake Mays’ drawing pet portraits, and a great lineup of pet friendly vendors!
Social Tees Animal Rescue is a not-for-profit, strictly no-kill 501c3 organization in the East Village of NYC that takes abandoned animals from kill shelters and provides them with safe haven and veterinary care before placing them in proper forever homes. http://www.socialteesnyc.org/
DOG & CO.’ s curated selection of quality pet (and owner!) products focus on independent dog accessory designers and styles with both form & function in mind. The Columbus Circle based brick and mortar frequently hosts fundraising events for animal rescue and welfare groups and is a strong advocate for the pet adoption cause. https://www.shopdogandco.com/
School for the Dogs firmly believes that training your dog shouldn’t be a nagging chore. Using humane and effective methods, their certified trainers have been improving relationships betweens pups and their owners since 2011. www.schoolforthedogs.com

Their no mystery ingredient lineup of goods ranges from pup tarts to doggy doughnuts, and your dog won’t be able to forgive you if you come home without a dozen.
