Dogs (and Cats) Have Their Day at the 4th Annual Dogs Day of Summer @ Hermon Park

This year, I was happy to help sponsor the 4th Annual “Dog Days of Summer” put together by Friends of Hermon Dog Park and the Arroyo Seco Neighborhood Council, with the participation of the L.A. Dept. of Animal Services, L.A. County Animal Control Services and the Pasadena Humane Society. I attended the event with my wife, Richelle, and our three kids. Our youngest, Simón, wanted to greet every dog that crossed his path! This was a wonderful, animal-friendly event promoting quality pet care, free and low cost vaccinations, as well as on-site pet-adoptions. Throughout the year, hundreds of dogs and cats are in need of loving homes. Thankfully, there are ways to help. Adopting a pet can be a very rewarding experience for the entire family.
