Old Dominion Humane Society’s Summer Series of Friday Nights

May 31 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


It’s a “Summer Series of Friday Nights” featuring fun with puppies and exciting events at Old Dominion Humane Society (ODHS) from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. from May through August. From the first Friday to the
fourth Friday, the four months will be filled with activities that are centered around the puppies. Families can make a date to be at ODHS to participate in wholesome fun and make memories with sweet, adoptable puppies. The events include:


 First Friday: “Puppy Playground,” where guests can visit the puppies that will be
playing on slides, dog tunnels and little houses. People can watch the pups get
their energy out while playing on all types of fun, kiddie toys.
 Second Friday: “Puppy Luau” with a swimming pool all ready for the puppies to
doggie paddle and cool off. The dogs will be ready to kick back and relax with
music by the pool. Guests should be ready to wade in, too, and enjoy some cool,
refreshing fun with the rescue dogs.
 Third Friday: “Puppies and Popsicles,” where guests can get a favorite flavor
refreshment from an ice cream truck that will be on hand. Popsicles will be
supplied for the puppies to help them cool off, too!
 Fourth Friday: “Puppies and Painting” is available for guests’ own dogs or some
fun painting projects with the puppies at Old Dominion. Supplies will be provided.
This is a fun activity for guests and the dogs to bring out their inner artist and
create masterpieces.
 ***Costume Party only on Friday May 31, where guests will view the latest styles
the puppies will feature. It will be like a red-carpet runway when puppies bask in
the limelight and show off their favorite dog clothes and accessories.

“Families can spend time with puppies and other adoptable dogs during Old
Dominion’s ‘Summer Series of Friday Nights’, and they’ll be able to enjoy parties,
painting and popsicles,” said Chrissy Blake, founder of ODHS. “It’s a great way to
start a family tradition and spend time with the cutest puppies. This is an opportunity for people to have fun while helping ODHS in its mission to provide permanent homes for animals in need.”
