Betsy Kaminski, co-owner of high-end pet goods retailer Raleigh & Co., has teamed up with Suzy Armstrong, a Greenwich real estate agent at Coldwell Banker; state Rep. Fred Camillo, who is an animal activist; Nicole Gallagher, owner of a Stratford-based pet grooming salon and founder of nonprofit Murphy’s Paw Rescue Inc.; and Sarah Bamford at Hybrid Media, to host a dog adoption event in Greenwich. It will be on Oct. 7 from 11a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Raleigh & Co. store, 209 Bruce Park Ave.
“I love to help my clients and friends find the perfect home and on a few occasions I’ve even helped them find the perfect dog,” Armstrong said.
Several dogs in foster care will be among those attending in hopes of meeting a new family. Raleigh & Co. will donate a portion of the day’s sales to Murphy’s Paw Rescue Inc. In addition, there will be a raffle with items from merchants.
Camillo plans to use the occasion to seek support for a petition extending dog access to Tod’s Point Park during the fall and winter months.
“In a community of dog lovers, extending the beach season at Tod’s Point for dogs from four to six months would be both logical and consistent with other shoreline towns,” Camillo said.
