We love to get submissions from readers about events or places to include on the website. We will include almost any suggestions that meet the following criteria:

A place or event where people can bring dogs.

We have two main types of entries: place listings and event listings.

Place listings are permanent entries that can include locations such as:

  • Stores or other businesses
  • Parks
  • Cafes
  • Facilities providing services to dogs such as daycare, obedience classes, and playgroups
  • ...or other places allowing dogs

At this time we are not including listings for veterinarians or grooming salons, simply because there are so many of them that it would be difficult to keep up-to-date and accurate. And since everyone knows you can bring your dog to the vet or groomer, those kind of listings are not as beneficial to our visitors as the less-obvious places.

Event listings are dated entries for events such as:

  • Fundraisers for rescues/shelters
  • Social activities from local breed groups
  • Events that are for people but welcome dogs too
  • ...or other events allowing dogs

Western New York is a place with many active animal shelters and rescues, and they frequently host events for fundraising, promoting adoption, or both. These events benefit great causes, and we are happy to list things such as walks, vendor shows, and contests where people can bring along their dogs. However, fundraisers for people-only are outside the scope of this website. It doesn't mean that we don't personally support these causes, because we do. It's just that we wouldn't be able to include all of them without changing the direction and purpose of the website. What we may do in the future is have an additional page on the site with links to all the local rescues, so that people can check each of them out for upcoming fundraisers they can support. If this is something you think we should do, let us know.
